When I saw this I had to try it right away! It's a great recipe with a wonderful taste, but I would have prefered it to rise a little more, I found it to be a little heavy and dense, I think I will add in 1/2 teaspoon baking powder along with the baking soda next time I make it, I increased the brown sugar to 1 cup, and also increased the vanilla to 1 tablespoon. Thanks Di!...Kitten:)

Very good! I used all allpurpose flour, butter instead of shortening,plain peanut butter,increased the brown sugar to 1 cup, increased the vanilla to a TBSP, used milk chocolate chips instead of dark and accidently increased the lemon juice to 1 TBSP. It was great! Definately a glass of milk treat. I also baked it in a bundt pan instead of a loaf pan. The extra lemon juice didn't adversely affect the bread at all. It disappeared fast!
