Lemony Tea Bread...

I found this recipe and made it last week. It is delicious. The only thing I didn't like is that it made a small loaf so next time I'm making a double recipe!

Lemon Tea Bread

1/4 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel
3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
dash of salt
1/4 c. milk

1 tablespoon lemon juice
3-4 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg, lemon peel, beat well. Combine flour, baking powder and salt, add to creamed mixture alternately with milk.
Transfer to a 5 ¾ in. X 3 in loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick comes our clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. With a toothpick put holes in the top so the glaze can get all in that bread. Combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over warm bread.
Eat and enjoy. This bread is so good with coffee. Like I said, next time I'm going to double and either make 2 small loaves or try to make one regular size.
Blessings from the holler.

Hi Boss,

I need to go home now so that I can make Mrs. JP's Lemon Tea Bread. I will be back tomorrow after I probably finish eating the whole piece. Please contact Mrs. JP if you have any questions.

Please make sure you triple the recipe so that you can send some up here to me. :)
