Ann Johnson's Lemon Loaf

Like lemons? You'll love this recipe for its taste and the ease of putting it together. Jazz assistant coach Phil Johnson's wife shares this family favorite.


1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 1/4 cups flour

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Grated rind of 1 lemon

1/4 cup powdered sugar

Juice of 1 lemon

Cream eggs, sugar and butter. Alternately add milk and vanilla to egg mixture and to flour-salt-baking powder mixture. Grease one loaf pan and dust with flour. Preheat oven to 350 F. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Poke holes in the loaf with a toothpick and while still warm, glaze with a mixture of 1/4 cup powdered sugar and the juice of 1 lemon.
