Lemon Loaf

Recipe by Heli Baker

This tangy snack won me my first bake trade, from a girl on my high school swim team. I got two dozen chocolate chip cookies for one loaf. (I got ripped off) :D All of the lemons in this recipe are used, juice and all.

Very lemony, very moist, and freezes really well. Thanks for posting. I did add a tad of lemon extract with the zest into the cake.
