“This recipe was developed by my good friend, Joyce. It was written for a bread machine, but I'm sure it could be adapted. Light bread with a wonderful lemon flavor! Try toasted...Yum!”

I made half this recipe without a bread machine, proofing the yeast in the water with some of the sugar until foamy. I then added the remainder of the ingredients, mixing well, and kneading until smooth. I made one loaf, braiding the dough to add some interest. The texture was good, and the flavor of the bread was OK, but for us, it needed butter to enjoy.

Delicious sweet bread with a hint of lemon. Wasn't overly sweet, but still a good breakfast bread. We had it for our Easter brunch. I followed the directions exactly, except I used pie pans because our cake pans are non-stick, which tends to over-brown. We brushed with melted butter and sprinkled with sanding sugar, which gave it a pretty look. Good served with butter. :)

Oh, this was so good! I added 1 tablespoon of lemon zest to bread machine. Taste was great. We toasted it this morning for breakfast!
