Daring Bakers' Challenge: Quick bread

The Daring Bakers’ February 2012 host was – Lis! Lisa stepped in last minute and challenged us to create a quick bread we could call our own. She supplied us with a base recipe and shared some recipes she loves from various websites and encouraged us to build upon them and create new flavor profiles.

I decided to go for a lemon bread. I think we've established that I love citrus flavors, even during (what is supposed to be) winter. It's chock-full of lemon zest and lemon juice, but I decided to increase the flavor even more by adding on a lemon glaze. As usual, the office enjoyed it. And like the name said, the bread was quick and easy to put together. Best of both worlds!


  1. I really like the rustic homemade look of the lemon loaf, and the lemon glaze is a great idea to boost the lemon-y flavour. Nice crumb in the loaf as well. Cheers from Audax in Sydney Australia.

  2. Looks great. Lemon all way round :)


  3. Out of interest, is lemon bread healthier or lemon cake? Are they pretty much the same in terms of calories?
