Recipe: Sticky Lemon Quick Bread

lemon bread

This Sticky Lemon Quick Bread is tart, sweet, and very lemony – and one of my very favorite quick bread recipes! In spite of the rich taste, it’s lower in fat and can easily be made dairy-free.This lemon quick bread freezes very well (and tastes even better chilled!), so I always double the recipe. The glaze makes the recipe, so don’t forget that last step!

    Do you use powdered sugar for the glaze, or granulate? The recipe just says “sugar”. Most glazes I’ve made use powdered, but I thought maybe this was different. :)

      Yes, I think it would work just as well. I’ve never tried it b/c we have a severe nut allergy in our house, but I’m assuming it’s just as good in baking!

    I made this the other day and it was wonderful! Now I think I’m going to try it with oranges. There’s a restaurant in our town that makes wonderful orange bread, and I think this recipe just might come close!

    Do u think u could use applesauce instead of the canola oil?, I always replace it in my baking.
