How to Make Lemon Almond Tea Bread


  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
