Tips

  1. 1
    If you are not planning to serve it immediately, you can wrap it up and put it in the fridge.
    Just reheat it in the oven when you're ready to serve it up.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    If you are using salted butter, you can disregard the 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    Do not grate the inner part of the lemon peel, it will ruin the recipe and make it bitter.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    If you don't have lemon, you can always use an orange.
    Then again, the name of the recipe would not be "lemon bread" anymore.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    If you do not have any lemon or orange available, you can disregard the lemon peel, but it will not turn out as tasty as the original recipe.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    The recipe does not call for any lemon juice, thus the lemon peel will give the recipe that lemon flavor.
