LEMON BREAD FOR YOUR EASTER BRUNCH
Who doesn't love attending a beautiful
Easter morning brunch.
Perhaps it is planned to enjoy after the Easter sunrise service,
or before the 11;00 AM formal church service...
either way, everyone so enjoys savoring
spring recipes that are homemade and a bit special
for this most blessed occasion.
This Lemon Bread is a favorite from
a local Pensacola catering cafe'!
This is definitely more the texture of bread, than cake
with a beautiful citrusy lemon flavor and glaze!
