  • This was ok. Next time I would double or even tripe the lemon and lemon peel as it wasn't lemony enough. I might even stir in 1/2 cup greek yogurt to make it a little richer tasting. - 3/9/14

  • It's a nice cakey bread. A little chewier than I would have liked and not as much lemon flavor (I even added a little extra) but all in all a refreshing , low fat treat! - 1/12/12
