Lemon Yogurt Loaf

"Found this recipe in Paula Deen Magazine and it's decribed as a delicate tea bread perfect when you want a change from the usual heavy breads and rich desserts. As I love the taste of lemon and like a lighter dessert. Editor notes that as a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, you can place 1 1/2 teaspoons baking poweder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup and add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup, hmmm, neat trick."

    I do like anything lemon and this loaf was very lemony, I do agree that it is more like a cake, I made it with s/r flour that is so easy to buy here in Scotland and it had a nice light texture and I am ashamed to say! that I have eaten most of it myself, every time I had a cup of tea I had a slice and I do drink a lot of tea. It's one that I will make for my visitors as it keep's very well, and will try not to eat it all myself next time. Made for PAC fall 09.

    This is a beautiful bread (more like a cake) and suggest that if at all possible do use self-raising flour (good brand). Substituting all purpose plus baking powder is not quite the same because I have tried both. Highly recommend this unusual lemon loaf - much more interesting than the well known one.
