    ReeLani's Note:

    This is one of the few things my mom used to bake every year for the holidays. Now that she's gone I've taken over the tradition. Everyone who tries it soon asks for more. Very lemony and very tasty! Prep time is a true guess-timate. It tastes best after it sits for a day.

      What a moist and lemony bread! The glaze seeping down into the bread made it even better the second day. We could hardly wait to taste it after smelling it in the oven! I used chopped walnuts, which gave it a nice flavor and texture. Thanks for this great recipe, Ree!

      This is delicious and easy to make. Used Meyer lemons and made them in four mini-loaf pans. Should have used 5! I ended up with cake in the bottom of my oven! I cooked the sugar and lemon juice together for the glaze. Yum.
