If you like the taste of lemon you have to try this Lemon Loaf! I got this recipe from Wendy Ness and she stated that this was one of her old time favorites. I can certainly taste why! Not only does the loaf have a lemon flavor in it, but then you make a lemony glaze that gets drizzled over top! This is seriously the best Lemon Loaf I have ever had.
