I love to bake. Do you? It seems harder and harder to find the time but today I did it. I made an easy quick bread with a lemony zing. Another easy quick bread recipe is a zucchini bread that is fabulous.
This recipe is one of those ones that is a classic. At least I think so. I discovered the recipe many years ago in a woman’s magazine. Now I don’t even buy magazines, I turn to Pinterest. Is that what you do nowadays? How the world has changed.
Throughout the years I have made changes as I generally do. This time I am going to write the recipe with my changes. And you can always let me know if you want the original recipe. But I really think you will love this version.
This is a good snack bread and is very moist. And of course, it can be a breakfast bread also. Now I know this may not be for everyone. There are some people who just don’t like lemon. But if you do like the taste of lemon then you will love an easy quick bread with a lemony zing.
