Who doesn’t love lemon? bread?

This simple old fashioned lemon bread is wonderful with your morning coffee, as a mid-day snack or even as a dessert.  Y’all my family loves the fresh lemon favor that this bread has to offer. The lemon zest and fresh squeezed juice adds a bright and fresh taste; literally it’s like springtime in your mouth!

Truly there’s nothing fancy here, just an old-fashioned lemon bread with a sweet lemon syrup. But if I am being honest I am a bit biased because I love this lemon bread, it is incredible. Must be the lemons, I love lemon anything.

This lemon bread is soft, springy, and moist without being heavy or dry. Plus, you probably have all the ingredients on hand to make it and you can pronounce every ingredient used.

The lemon loaf cake itself is perfectly lemony, and the lemon glaze boosts the lemon flavor even more. Lemon lovers will be in their glory!
