Interesting, but a nice flavorful dinner. I used lemon yogurt, and the glaze was fantastic. DS has a new favorite I think. I also used regular milk. Made for PRMR Tag.
Very good and open to adaptations. I tagged this recipe to used up some ingredients I had on hand; so I used semolia flour plus the regular flour - forgot the milk and used vanilla yogurt (activia non-fat) and skipped the glaze. I used one regular bread pan and 2 individiual size pans - I think this will freeze wonderfully! Thanks for sharing!
This really does taste like lemon pie! The texture is more cake-like than bread. (that is from using pastry flour). I skipped the glaze and don't think it was missed. Nice tangy flavor.
