Lemon Bread

This bread is a treat for anyone! Full of tasty lemon flavor, moist, and quick to prepare….this is a favorite with everyone!

Have you tried the Lemon Bread from Starbucks?? Oh boy! It is soooooo yummy! I could eat a slice for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, or even dessert. That’s just how yummy it is!!

Recently, I went to Starbucks to grab a coffee. I hadn’t had breakfast yet, so I decided to splurge and get a slice of their lemon bread. Unfortunately, they were completely sold out the morning I went and I didn’t get my sweet treat. Since I was still in the mood and heading to the grocery store anyways, I decided to buy some lemons and try an at home version.


Well, I went home, whipped a batch up and it was nasty. It was way too sour, not sweet at all, and not even moist. Epic fail! But, I was determined to try again, and since I had bought a big bag of lemons, I whipped up attempt number two. The end result was MUCH better! Just the right amount of lemon, quite moist, very quick to prepare, and my hubby/kids all loved it as well!!

Next time you are in the mood for lemon bread, skip Starbucks and make this recipe! It makes a lot more than the one slice you’d buy and is much more affordable!!
