      Holy freakin' jack flash! This is one of those perfect recipes, that mind me of the lemon loaf my mom used to make, only BETTER! I've printed out this recipe, and already my boyfriend has request another loaf, as he loves having a small slice with his at-work coffee. I sub'd the 1/2c of milk, and broke it down to 1/4 fresh lemon juice & 1/4 milk, and it wasn't too strong ... I'll be doing that from now on to give it that extra tiny little boost of fresh lemon taste. SUPER recipe! Thanks so much for sharing!

      Great loaf! Added 1.5 lemon rind and 1/4 lemon juice 1/4 milk which gave the loaf a real lemony taste the way I like. Thanks for posting, I got many compliments.
