    Fantastic! Couldn't be much easier. My lemons were quite juicy so I only used half of one for the glaze. I want to try this recipe next as one reviewer did and use mini muffin pans. And I think I'll add a few poppy seeds.

    Utterly easy with a fine crumb. I did substitute butter for the margarine. It is true that the loaf itself isn't very sweet, but I LIKE that about it; it is a tea loaf, not a dessert cake. The lemon glaze is perfect--a little sweetness that keeps the loaf moist. (I do recommend using a skewer rather than a toothpick for the holes, to get the glaze in deeper.) Pour the glaze quite slowly and carefully so it seeps into the holes rather than pouring off the sides (as it really wants to do :-) ). Finally, I did follow the directions precisely in terms of time and temperature, but clearly the center wasn't totally done because as it was cooling a deep wide crack appeared in the center. Although that did not affect the enjoyment of the loaf at all, iIt did lose one star. I will make this again...and suspect I will be back with another star.
