    M&Mers's Note:

    This recipe comes from my very first cookbook...The Mary Moore Cookbook, published in 1978! This loaf rises nicely and gives your kitchen that marvellous baking bread aroma! Nice, light lemony flavor. Prep time does not include rising time.

      This is a lovely loaf and we enjoyed several slices with our morning tea. I would have liked a little more lemon taste though -- and I zested two lemons to mix in with the sugar and mace. Maybe a a little lemon juice actually mixed in the dough would be nice. By the way, I think the basic dough recipe (without the sugar topping and melted butter over the top) would make wonderful dinner rolls!

      Outstanding! The dough was very easy to work with and baked into a beautiful "monkey bread" style loaf of bread-we enjoyed plucking off each bubble of bread to eat. I found it to be just lemony enough. The flavor & texture is excellent. Thanks.
