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.

- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 2 lemons, zest of
