Another great recipe I forgot to share! My mom made this a few weeks ago (after consulting me about substitutions, because she's wonderful ). We froze the extras and have been munching on them ever since. I love the flavor! The recipe calls what you pour over the top a "glaze", but it's really more liquidy and it totally sinks into the bread. Mmm. It's even better the second day... and the third, and the fourth. Lol.
Lemon Bread (Makes 2 loaves)
BREAD 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 pinch salt 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 2 lemon, rind of (grated) 1/2 cup cooking oil 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce 1 1/2 cups Egg Beaters or 12 egg whites (yes, that much!) 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
GLAZE 1/3 cup granulated sugar (not confectioners) 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from the lemons you used for the rind)
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. 2. Grease/flour 2 standard loaf pans. 3. In a mixing bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt. 4. In another large mixing bowl combine sugar and lemon rind. 5. Then add oil and applesauce and 1/4 cup Egg Beaters (2 egg whites) at a time, beating well after adding each addition. 6. Add flour mixture and nuts. 7. Divide between the two prepared loaf pans. 8. Bake one hour. 9. While bread is baking prepare the glaze by thoroughly mixing the sugar and lemon juice. 10. Pour glaze over bread as soon as you take it from the oven. 11. Leave loaves in pans overnight.
