Delicious! I love the crunchy touch of walnuts in this sweet bread. I wanted it good and lemony so I added a 1/2 tsp of lemon extract along with a few drops of yellow food coloring. I wasn't crazy about the grainy texture of the uncooked glaze so I microwaved it about 3 minutes and ended up with a fabulous tangy-sweet syrupy glaze that made the cake taste wonderful!

this is a great recipe for a beginner...added 2 lemons worth of rinds and used the 2 lemons with sugar for the glaze.

Oh, my, goodness!! I LOVE this recipe. It turned out so moist and it wasn't crumbly like some home made breads can be. This recipe is a keeper! I added 1 extra tablespoon of butter (wanted to make sure it would be moist) and a tiny splash more milk. Turned out AMAZING! It's best the next day chilled. Try it, you will not regret it I promise.
