Lemon Bread

 All you lemon lovers out there. I have a recipe for you today!!!Oh where do I even begin with this bread! This bread is out of this world. It is fantastic-lemony
and sweet but not too sweet. It is a great bread to bake and take to someone!! They will thank you believe me. Anyway, if you want something lemony and delicious go make this bread!!!
Lemon Yogurt Bread
makes 2 (8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch)loaves
3 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups sugar
3 T. lemon zest from 3 large lemons
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup to 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice(from the lemons that were zested)
4 T.  of sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat the loaf pans with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, combine the sugar and lemon zest and rub the mixture together with your fingers until the sugar is moist and fragrant. Stir in the eggs, vanilla, oil, applesauce, 1/4 cup Lemon juice and yogurt. Fold in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not over mix. Pour the batter into the prepoared pans about 2/3 full and smooth the top. Bake the bread until the top of the loaf is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle come out clean, about 45-55 minutes and 16-25 minuts for muffins or mini loaves.  While the bread is baking, combine the other lemon juice and 4 T sugar in a small saucepan and let it come to a boil. Take it off the heat. When bread is done, take out of the pan and place on cooling rack. I poked holes in the top of the bread with a toothpick all over. Then I Gently poured the warm glaze over the top of the warm bread. Let the bread cool completely. Enjoy!!! So moist and flavorful!!
