Lemon Bread

Lemon Bread

I have adapted this recipe from a Lemon Yoghurt Breakfast Cake I found on this website; www.theviewfromgreatisland.com. It is similar to banana bread but not as sweet and you can taste the lemon. It’s delicious.

You will need:-

2 x cups of spelt flour

2 x teaspoons of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of salt

2 x large eggs

3/4 cup of sugar

3/4 cup of sheep yoghurt

zest from 2 x lemons

juice of 2 lemons

You need to:-

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius. Mix together all dry ingredients. Whisk up the egg until pale and thick. Gradually whisk in the sugar and then add the remaining wet ingredients – whisking in each one slowly. Make sure you zest the lemons before you juice them. Pour mixture into a loaf tin and cook for 30 -35 minutes.

Please note:- I only made a 1/2 batch as my tin was very small and hand whisked the eggs. This is why my bread looks quite small.
