1 medium lemon
2-1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp double-acting baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 c. butter or margarine
3 eggs
3/4 c. milk

Preheat overn to 350F. From lemon, grate 1 T. peel and squeeze 4-1/2 tsp lemon juice; set aside. Grease 9x5-inch loaf pan.

In large bowl with fork, mix flour, baking powder, salt and 1-1/2 c. sugar. With pastry blender or 2 knives used scissor-fashion, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in peel.

In small bowl with fork, beat eggs slightly and stir into milk. Stir this mixture into flour mixture just until flour is moistened.

Spoon into pan. Bake 1-1/4 hours. Cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan.

In 1-quart saucepan over medium high heat, heat lemon juice and 2 T. sugar to boiling. Cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. With pastry brush, brush sugar mixture evenly over top of loaf. Serve warm, or cool loaf completely to serve later.
