Lemon Loaf

Be sure and stop at http://designsbygollum.blogspot.com/ for "Foodie Friday", there are some amazing food blogs to see.

Lemon Loaf

I know there are lots of recipes for Lemon Loaf but I thought I would post mine. It's from a cookbook from one of my vast collections of cookbooks.
The cover of the cookbook is called The Purity Cookbook. It was printed in the 1950's, I've been making this loaf for ever since I can remember.
It's sort of falling apart at the seams as I've been using for all these years.

Lemon Loaf

Preheat oven to 350 F. degrees.
Grease a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan.

Sift together;
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Stir in;
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 tsp. grated lemon peel

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup milk
