 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      stick         unsalted butter -- softened
      1/2  cup           sugar
    2                    eggs
      1/2  cup           lemon juice
    2      cups          flour, all-purpose
    1      tablespoon    baking powder
    1      teaspoon      salt
                         rind of 1 lemon -- finely chopped
 
 Cream the butter and sugar together, then add the lemon rind and the eggs,
 one at a time, beating well after each is added.
 
 Stir in the lemon juice, then sift in the dry ingredients gradually. Beat
 well after each addition until you have a light workable batter.
 
 Pout into a buttered and floured 8-1/2 X 4-1/2 X 2-1/2-inch bread pan and
 bake at 350 for 50 to 60 minutes. Turn out on a rack to cool.
 
 
 Do not slice until the next day.
