Sunshine Lemon Bread

This is a new recipe that I took a test run with on this past Saturday.  
I must admit I love all things Lemon and who doesn’t love alittle Sunshine in their day!

This recipe is pretty simple and comes out tasting lovely!  
I made four small loaves.  I gave a couple away, and our family enjoyed the other two!  

Ready for the oven!
I will let you know a hint, when you make it, be sure to
poke enough holes right after 
you remove it from the oven to get the glaze deep inside the bread.  
That makes the entire bread!
Baked & ready for the glaze!

Here’s the glaze I mentioned! Doesn’t it look yummy???

I hope you enjoy the post today & try the bread… it’s refreshing & sweet! 

Thanks for stopping by!
