Lemon Almond Bread-super moist lemon quick bread topped with a sweet lemon glaze and sliced almonds!
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 Almondmilk 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.
Look at that pretty loaf. Almost too pretty to cut into!
I enjoyed slice after slice. I couldn’t stop myself. This Lemon Almond Bread is a new favorite!
I am calling this Lemon Almond Bread so I feel better about myself when I am eating it for breakfast. It can easily pass for a lemon loaf cake. Serve it with fresh berries to dress it up! But again, it is bread which means it is totally acceptable for breakfast.
Jump on the lemon bandwagon and make a loaf of Lemon Almond Bread. And you might want to make two loaves so you can share with your neighbors. I guarantee you will want to keep a loaf for yourself:)
