1 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cups whole milk or cream
1/2 stick of butter
2-3 drops yellow food coloring (if desired)
10 oz. white chocolate chips
1 tbsp. lemon extract
1 tsp. lemon zest (optional)
Grease a small plate or pan with butter or cooking spray, and set aside.
Mix together sugar, milk, butter, and food coloring in medium-sized pan. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.
Boil for 5 minutes without stirring. Actually I boiled it for 6 minutes the first time and it set up right away but it was a little riskier. If you want to be safe just do 5 minutes and then expect it to take longer to completely set.
Remove from heat and stir until smooth. Stir in white chocolate chips until melted. Stir in lemon flavoring (you might have to do this to taste, because if your fudge is still hot some of the flavoring will burn off). Stir in lemon zest if desired.
1½ cup flour
1¼ cup sugar
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 Tablespoon poppy seeds
¾ cup milk
½ cup plus 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond extract
2 T. freshly grated lemon zest
Lemon Almond Glaze:
½ cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
¼ cup sliced almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 7×3 inch loaf pans and set aside. (You can also use a 9×5 just increase baking time).
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and poppyseeds. Stir until combined. In a separate medium sized bowl add the milk, vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla, almond extract, and lemon zest.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated. Pour into loaf pans and bake for 45-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove and let bread cool.
TO make the lemon almond glaze: Whisk together powdered sugar, heavy cream, and lemon juice. Drizzle over bread and top with sliced almonds.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon finely shredded lemon peel
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan; set aside. In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in center of the flour mixture; set aside.
In a medium bowl beat egg with a fork. Stir in milk, oil, lemon peel, lemon juice, and poppy seeds. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy).
Spoon batter into prepared pan; spread evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely on a wire rack. Wrap and store overnight.
