I have not tried this recipe, but looking at the ingredients, I know it has to be good. If I see a recipe that looks good, but I have not tried it, I will post it, but let you know that I have not made it. This would be a good holiday gift if you like to give homemade goodies to friends and neighbors. It is from a Kraft cook booklet.

I have to agree, this was very good. Loved the subtle lemon taste along with the cream cheese layer. Will definitely make again.
Hey Bobtail! I made this in thanks for your review of my Yummy Crab Salad. I really enjoyed the cream cheese layer and made the bread as is, tho I used dark brown sugar. The nuts I used were macadamia but next time I think I would omit them. Im just not a nut person. Thanks for an easy bread!
Deeeelish !! This is really good!! The recipe is well written and easy to follow. When you cover the cream cheese layer with the remaining batter, it does not cover the cream cheese, it kind of sinks in. I used the zest of one lemon but added about 1/4 of it to the cream cheese mixture. I did not add the nuts as DH can not eat nuts. The bread is very moist. The lemon flavor is light. Each slice looks different. Very Good - This one is a keeper. Thank you Bobtail!
