  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease 1 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 3/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the lemon peel. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt and baking powder.
  3. Blend the flour mixture into the egg mixture, alternately with the milk; stir just to combine. Fold in the nuts; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean.
  5. In a small bowl, dissolve 2 tablespoons sugar in the lemon juice. After loaf has cooled for 10 minutes, spoon glaze over loaf.
