1 c Sugar
1/2 c Milk
6 tb Unsalted butter
1 1/2 c Flour
1 ts Baking powder
1/8 ts Salt
1 Lemon rind, grated
1/2 c Sugar
1/4 c Fresh lemon juice
2 c Water
1 c Sugar
2 tb Grated lemon rind
1 c Fresh lemon juice
2 Egg whites (opt)
Grease and flour a 9×5 loaf pan for each loaf of bread you are making.
Combine sugar, milk, butter, and eggs; mix well. Blend in flour, baking
powder, salt and grated lemon rind. Turn mixture into pan and bake 1 hour
in preheated 350-degree oven. Cool slightly, remove from pan, and set on
Meanwhile, prepare glaze. Combine sugar and lemon juice in sauce pan. Stir
over low heat until sugar dissolves and glaze is hot.
Pour hot glaze slowly over surface of bread. Let bread cool completely
To prepare Lemon Ice, combine water and sugar in a saucepan. Add rind and
bring to a boil. Simmer 5 minutes. Let cool. Add lemon juice and stir.
Pour liquid into freezer trays (two for each loaf of bread) and freeze
until set, but not hard. Place in food processor or blender. If desired,
add egg whites (they will make the ice smooth and white), and beat until
smooth. Refreeze for about 3 hours or until firm. When ready to serve, let
stand for a few minutes before scooping out.
Serve bread slices with a scoop of lemon ice on the side.
