Tea-time is very popular in Europe and was a standard practice in England and all of its colonies. It’s essentially a break in the mid-morning and mid-afternoon when tea was consumed. The morning tea-break was referred to as “low-tea” and the afternoon break was referred to as “high-tea.” It was at high-tea that a confection was served and this Lemon Tea bread is an example.

This is a batter bread which means it is made with baking powder as opposed to yeast and will rise in the bread machine while baking. The cake setting is used because it does not have a rise cycle which is unnecessary with batter breads. It has a lemony flavor as a result of adding lemon zest to both the batter and as a topping before it begins to bake. If you want a two-pound loaf just double the recipe.

INGREDIENTS:
 6 tablespoons of butter
 1 cup of sugar
 2 eggs
 ½ cup of milk
 2 tablespoons of grated lemon peel + 1 tablespoon shredded for topping
 1 teaspoon of salt
 1 cup of all-purpose flour
 1 teaspoon of baking powder
For Glazing:
 ½ cup of sugar
 Juice of one lemon
DIRECTIONS:
1

Add the cake bread ingredients to the bread pan in the order indicated.

2

Select the Cake setting; 1-pound loaf and if it asks -medium crust.

3

When done let carefully remove the lemon bread from the bread pan.

4

Mix the lemon juice with the sugar until sugar is dissolved and glaze the top.

5

Let rest for 5 minutes and serve.
