Great for breakfast, packing in lunches, and having with a relaxing cup of tea. Make an extra loaf to give to a special friend! :)

Yummy! I added extra zest and chopped hazelnuts. Very tasty.

Not sure what I did wrong, but this turned out kinda dry when eaten by itself. When we ate it with butter and/or jam it helped. I like the idea of a loaf made from lemons so I will try again.

Nice, really nice! As it turned out, I was out of fresh lemons and all out of my frozen I used fresh oranges for both the zest and the juice. Very enjoyable! Can't wait to make with lemons!
