Really enjoyed this bread. I did have to make some changes to suit our tastes. Used 1/2 butter and an extra tbsp. of lemonade in the batter plus grated rind of 1 lemon. We like a tangy lemon flavor. Also used the creaming method because of texture. So glad you posted this basic recipe because prefer it to the usual lemon bread. Thanks .
