Personal Notes:
My friend Gayla gave me this recipe. One chilly winter day I popped over to her house for a visit. (Ah, the joy of being neighbors!) She served me this bread with hot tea... so tasty, especially for lemon lovers such as myself.
Gayla says that when wrapped tightly in foil this bread lasts forever and tastes better with age.
