Lemony Lemon Cake/Bread

Lemon Bread/Cake - 5 stars

Is it Lemon Bread or Lemon Cake? That is the argument going on right now at my house, however the one thing we can all agree on... This cake/bread is very yummy! Light and fluffy dessert! I like all things with lemon, lemon chicken, lemon pork, lemon bread, lemon fish, lemon lemon lemon. I love lemon! Anyway, I actually started to make this the other night in my bread machine, however that was a big flop that I blogged about here and ended up making white bread. So I had to give this another try, but this time make it in the oven.
I found this recipe on, but I added more lemon zest and lemon juice, but cut down the milk to compensate for the lemon juice. I wanted a good strong lemon taste...and that is what I got, perfect in my book!

Kinda looks like a lemon too huh?
