Lemon & Honey Bread With Lemon Glaze


This recipe is one of my all time favorites but honey is not on the original list of ingredients.  I’ve worked to get the right proportions as I needed honey to be included, not only because I knew it would work and taste fantastic, but I wanted to share the recipe with you.  While it is a delicious bread without honey, adding honey creates an even more moist and luscious bread.  It delivers a crisp citrus tang along with a gooey sweetness from the honey.  The killer is the lemon glaze that is poured over the hot bread.  It soaks into the bread making an extremely moist crumb and crisps up around the edges adding that crunch I love so much .  It’s sweet bread perfection!

Lemon & Honey Bread With Lemon Glaze

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup mild honey
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
Grated rind of two lemons
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup sugar

Cream butter, sugar and eggs together.  Beat in honey.  Add milk and stir in dry ingredients and lemon rind.  Stir until well blended.  Bake in a loaf pan at 350* for 45 minutes.
Mix juice of 1 lemon with 1/2 cup sugar and spoon over loaf while hot.
Cool a bit before slicing.

    A good sounding bread. I’m happy to see that you are going to start another bee adventure.

    • Thank you Karen – I set up the hive today and am waiting for the bees to arrive. I’m excited! Lemon bread is one of my favorites. It’s good for breakfast, snacks and dessert!

    I can’t wait to try this using my own honey….Your posts and experiences have kicked me off center and I will become a real bee keeper on June 13th when I pickup my four frame Nuc and queen for my hive. Thanks and keep up the excellent work

    • Wow – that is great. I hope you will love your girls as much as I’ve loved mine and enjoy the experience. I am getting a package of bees in a couple of weeks too, so that I can start up here in N.C.. I’m pretty excited and so happy to hear you are also taking up this fantastic hobby! Good luck and keep me posted on your adventures!

Make my day - leave me your thoughts!
