My favorite flavor ever is Lemon. Lemon pie, lemon chicken, lemon cookies, lemon bread....everything lemon is great. I was in the mood to bake and the kids wanted a snack and I have made so many cookies and brownies every week I decided to make them something different and they loved it. This bread is great to make for the summer time and will be a hit no matter where you bring it or leave it. The sweet hint of lemon in the bread with a lemon glaze will win anyone over.

1 Cup of sugar
4 Tablespoons Lemon Juice

When bread is done take a tooth pick and place prick the hot bread multiple times and add in 1/2 cup of the glaze over the bread and let sit and sink into the bread until cool. When cool add on the rest of your glaze.
