  • In a large bowl, mix together
    butter, sugar and lemon
    extract. Beat in eggs with an
    electric mixer.

  • In a separate bowl, sift
    together flour, baking powder
    and salt. Add flour mixture to
    butter mixture, alternating
    with milk, beating just
    enough to blend. Fold in
    lemon rind and pour into
    prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake at 350° for 1 hour , until
    toothpick inserted into center
    comes out clean. Cool 10
    minutes and remove from pan.

Icing
  • Mix together lemon
    juice and sugar. While bread is
    still hot, pour icing over top
    and into any cracks (place
    loaf over a sheet pan, as extra
    icing will drip over sides).
    When loaf is cool, wrap tightly
    in foil and store overnight
    before serving.
