  • I have made this recipe using 2 regular size loaf pans - this will take about 45 minutes to bake.
  • This last time I made 12 cupcakes and 3 mini loaves, you probably would make 6 mini loaves without the cupcakes.
  • For the glaze I had made Lemon Buttercream Frosting and I thinned 2 tbsp of the frosting with milk and drizzled it over the top.

I also made this recipe for an Easter treat by making  turning cupcakes over and making baskets.  For the recipe head over to Lemon Baskets for Easter.
