Lemon Bread

This was my Mother's Day dessert and it was delicious! Homemade lemon bread was thinly sliced, layered with Devon Cream (vanilla pudding or custard would work too), whipped cream and fresh strawberries. The flavours mixed so well! This combination would also work as a trifle, layering the bread, pudding, cream and fruit in a bowl and letting it sit overnight. Other berries such as blueberries go well with lemon too.

Lower Fat Lemon Bread (less guilt with the cream fillings!)

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar (Splenda)

Cream together and add

2 eggs, beaten

1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
rind of one lemon, finely grated

Place in a loaf pan and bake for 30 minutes at 325 F.

Glaze: juice of one lemon, 1/4 cup sugar. Drizzle on top of hot baked loaf.

This looks great--actual picture or a shellacked professional version off a cooking site? I'm going to try this one.

It is an actual picture. No shellac at this house! ;-)
It was an improvised recipe.
