    Just reheat it in the oven when you're ready to serve it up.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  2. 2
    If you are using salted butter, you can disregard the 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  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
  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
  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.
