My mother makes this recipe every winter when her lemon tree had ripe fruit. A wonderful gift for friends and neighbors during the Christmas season.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup butter, softened

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease 1 9x5 inch loaf pan.

  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 3/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the lemon peel. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt and baking powder.

  3. Blend the flour mixture into the egg mixture, alternately with the milk; stir just to combine. Fold in the nuts; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
