Glazed lemon bread is a simple quick bread.  Delicious sweet and tangy loaded with lemon flavor, moist and fluffy, assembles in mixes in 10 minutes.  So yummy for an afternoon snack or for breakfast with your coffee. A quick bread packed full of lemon flavor will brighten every day.


Units Scale
  • 6 tablespoons of unsalted room temperature Butter
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh grated Lemon Rind
  • 1 1/2 cup of Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 cup of Milk
  • The juice of 1 Lemon

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup of Powdered Sugar
  • The juice of 1 Lemon


  1. Heat the oven to 325°.
  2. Grease and flour a 9 inch loaf pan (I have always used glass)
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together butter, sugar, eggs and the lemon rind.
  4. In a larger bowl mix together flour, salt, baking powder, then add the  milk, and lemon juice.
  5. Add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well.
  6. Put the batter in the greased and floured loaf pan.
  7. Bake at 325° for  50 to 60 minutes. Check for doneness after 45 minutes with a toothpick to see, if it comes out clean. Keep an eye on the bread as you do not want to overcook.
  8. To make the glaze mix the powdered sugar and the juice of one lemon. Start with the lemon juice in the bowl and add the powdered sugar until it is the consistency you like. You may need to add more powdered sugar or use less depending on how much juice you get from your lemon.
  9. While the bread is still warm, about 10 minutes after it comes out of the oven, drizzle the glaze over the bread.
