Lemon Burst Loaves

This is my new "must have"!!!  This taste great!!!

Lemon Burst Loaves

1 3/4 C. flour
3/4 C. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 C. sour cream
1 egg
1/3 C. butter, melted
2 T. grated lemon peel
1 T. lemon juice

2 T. lemon juice
2/3 C. powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour your loaf pans.  (Could use mini - but I used 2 small-to-medium size pans.)

In a large bowl - whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda & salt. 

In another bowl - beat the sour cream, egg, butter, lemon peel & lemon juice until smooth.  Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients.  Stir just until moistened.

Fill the pans 2/3 full.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool for 5 minutes before removing the loaves from the pans onto a wire rack to cool.

For the glaze - stir the lemon juice and powdered sugar together.  Add more juice or sugar depending on the consistency you want.  I find the original to work to a nice drizzling consistency.  Pour over the tops to cover. 

This is the dry ingredients -

After the wet ingredients have been added -

In the loaf pans ready to go in the oven -

That sounds very much like the recipe I use. I have not made lemon bread in a long time. Now that I see yours, I want some! It's too hot to bake tonight, but maybe this weekend.

Thanks for giving me the idea.

Have a great weekend.

Beautiful loaves - they sounds like they're "bursting" with lemon flavor. Cute kitty too.
