Ingredients

2/3 c
butter, melted
1 c
sugar
4
eggs
1/2 tsp
pure almond extract
3 c
all-purpose flour, sifted
2 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
salt
1 c
milk
2 Tbsp
grated lemon peel or 1 tbsp. dried lemon zest
1 c
chopped nuts, optional
6 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice
1/2-3/4 c
confectioners' sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325'F. Prepare 2 loaf pans. (I sprayed mine with Pam)
2
Combine the butter and 1 cup sugar; blend well. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add almond extract.
3
Sift together dry ingredients; add to egg mixture alternately with milk. Blend just enough to mix. Fold in lemon peel and nuts.
4
Turn into greased loaf pans (aluminum or glass). Bake in slow oven 325'F. for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. (If it isn't done in 35 minutes, just add 2 minutes at a time. My loaves today took 37 minutes total.)
5
Mix 6 Tbsp. of lemon juice and 1/2 -3/4 cup confectioners sugar. Immediately spoon over hot loaf in pan.
Cool 10 minutes, then remove from pan.
Cool on rack. Do not cut until completely cooled.
Makes 2 loaves
