 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1                    Lemon
    2 1/4   c            Flour, all-purpose
    1 1/2   ts           Baking powder
      3/4   ts           Salt
    1 1/2   c            Sugar
      3/4   c            Butter
    3                    Eggs
      3/4   c            Milk
    2       tb           Sugar
 
   From lemon, grate 1 tablespoon peel and squeeze 4 1/2
   teaspoons lemon juice; set aside.
   
   In large bowl with fork, mix flour, baking powder,
   salt and 1 1/2 cups sugar.  Cut in butter until
   mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in peel.
   
   In small bowl with fork, beat eggs slightly and stir
   in milk; then stir this mixture into flour mixture
   just until flour is moistened.
   
   Spoon into greased loaf pan.  Bake at 350F for 1 1/4
   hours.  Cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes; remove
   from pan.
   
   Heat lemon juice over medium-high heat, stirring in 2
   tablespoons sugar. Heat to boiling.  Cook, stirring,
   until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.  With
   pastry brush, brush sugar mixture evenly over top of
   bread. Serve warm, or cool loaf completely to serve
   later.
   
   I've also made 3 small (3.5x6 inch) loaves with this
   recipe, baked at 350F for 45 minutes.
