This bread is both sweet and tart. Moist inside with a hard crusted top. Can easily be doubled.

This was a really great-tasting lemon bread. My only change was to use butter, as I don't use shortening. I honestly don't see how anyone could get 3 loaves out of it, unless we're talking miniature pans. This amount barely came halfway up my loaf pan (bread loaf sized), so I'd say you get more like one, good-sized loaf. Liked the texture and bright flavour.
