delicious though heavy

Worked beautifully although perhaps there is a better way to grate lemon rind than with a grater! Tasted delicious and will do again.

It was delicious but I think I beat it for to long when I was supposed to only combine it so it was a bit dense although it still tasted delicious. Instead of using the syrup I made lemon icing with icing sugar, water and lemon juice. When I iced it I left it the pan so the icing didn't run down the side. This worked well and I will definitely make it again

Lovely recipe simple and yummy

MWAH

Works everytime! New family favorite for all occasions

Light and fluffy textured, easy to make and very tasty loaf.. got the big thumbs up from the man of the house who loves lemony things...

great recipe

I baked this in a hurry for friends who had come to help with the garden, but I made it in mini loaf tin makes 8,[ like a friand tin], baked for less time 12-15 mins, then spooned syrup over , they loved it !!!! Then I repeated the recipe in the mini loaf for Staff at school, they disappeared quickly!! Always great to make something that everyone does eat when taking food to work .
I have tried Lime juice for syrup also and it is a lovely " Bells of St Clements" variation.[ although not oranges haha]

I always double the recipe as I have 2 loaf tins and why waste power? 1 loaf for my work and 1 for my husband's work - everybody raves about it - it is like a Madeira cake with lemon flavouring - absolute bliss !!!! Thank you for the recipe!!!!!

Nice, easy and tastes good everytime!!

Amazing fail-proof recipe. I have thoroughly enjoyed baking this loaf. I have tried switching up the lemons with limes and oranges and it turned out each time.

Amazing! This is the best lemon loaf I have ever eaten.

Fabulous, easy and tasty.

An easy recipe but a mighty tasty one. Will not last long in the tin.

I'd like to try it but - how much is a cup? The butter is in metric but the flour and sugar is in - something else. (I'm in UK so don't know what measurement a cup is).
CHELSEA: In NZ we use 250ml metric cup. Happy Baking!

loved this loaf, made it many times.. so easy to do.

Delicious and the 2nd one frozen well for later eating.

Beautiful, I didn't have any lemons so used Oranges, my other have is asking for it to made again. We both thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the crunchy ends.

This recipe was very simple to follow and easy to make. The end result was a delicious loaf that myself and my family loves.

Delicious! I replaced the milk with lemon juice to try and use up more of the many lemons I have at the moment - worked out just fine and had a very lemony tang!

DELICIOUS !! ...tip... (I have made this using limes when my tree was full of them (and the lemons had run out.), and weather using limes or lemons.. it is equally delicious!!
