Lemon Bread

on May 10, 2016

This recipe is from my other grandma. She was a great cook and baker, and she loved to do both! I’m sharing this photo today of what might be their wedding photo – they sure look dressed up! That’s Grandma and Gramp in the middle and Gramp’s brother on the left and Grandma’s sister on the right, and I think they were part of the wedding party. I love this one!


Their hairdo’s are what struck me. It looks like the girls have just had their hair done with not a pin curl out of place, and the boys look like they have the hair cuts of today! They all look so incredibly young!

The recipe for today is for Lemon Bread and I have to say, this is the best lemon bread I’ve ever had. It has a glaze that’s put on last, and that makes all the difference.



This one is so good!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Lemon Bread


1 package lemon cake mix

1 package lemon instant pudding

1/2 cup salad oil (I used canola)

1 cup water


4 eggs

one at a time beating well.

Mix in:

1 cup nuts, chopped (I used walnuts)

Put in two greased loaf pans.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.


1/2 cup sugar

Juice of 2 lemons

Before removing from the pans, spoon the glaze over the loaves.

Let sit in pan 10 minutes.

Cool on rack.


Lemon cake mix, lemon pudding, lemon juice in the glaze. No wonder this bread is so delicious.


Don’t forget to leave the loaves in the pan so the glaze can soak in with all its lemon goodness.


It seems like a lot of glaze, but go ahead and use it ALL!


The loaves come out of the pan easily and are so pretty.


Since there are two loaves, you can share one with someone special. Just wrap it up and put a ribbon on it!


This bread is so lemony and so good – it has a very true lemon flavor. The glaze over the top really makes it so special. Make up these two loaves and share one with a friend. They’ll be a friend for life!
