DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • To make batter:
  • Beat sugar, oil, eggs, lemon juice and zest with an electric mixer for about 1 to 2 minutes, or until pale and thick.
  • Gradually pour in buttermilk, and beat until smooth.
  • Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
  • Stir flour mixture into egg mixture with a wooden spoon.
  • Pour the batter into prepared loaf pans.
  • Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inverted in the center comes out clean.
  • To make glaze:
  • Warm lemon juice, honey and sugar in small saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves.
  • Pierce top of hot cake all over with wooden skewer or toothpick.
  • Generously brush honey glaze over bread so it seeps into holes.
  • Cool 20 minutes in pan. Unmold, and cool on wire rack before wrapping in plastic wrap to store.
