I am on a serious lemon kick. I can’t stop! I’ve made lemon pasta, cookies, pancakes, and even a grilled cheese sandwich. Yeah, I am kind of obsessed. My love for lemon continues with Lemon Almond Bread. I would apologize for my lemon overkill, but I am not going to because this Lemon Almond Bread is out of this world good. You will thank me and my crazy lemon kick after you taste this bread.

This Lemon Almond Bread is so good that I didn’t want to share it. I was going to fill a pretty plate with slices of bread for our neighbors, but I couldn’t part with it. I know, I am selfish, but I promise I will redeem myself by making another loaf to share.

Lemon and almond flavors team up to create an outstanding loaf of bread. I used Almond Breeze Almond Milk and almond extract to bring out the almond flavor. This bread will also make you pucker up a bit thanks to the lemon zest and fresh lemon juice.

And I didn’t stop there. After the bread was done baking, I drizzled a sweet lemon glaze over the top. I also sprinkled on sliced almonds.
