Split Lemon Bread

Split Lemon Bread

As I waited for in my doctor’s waiting room I was leafing through a Mind & Body magazine. One that caught my eye was Split Lemon Bread especially since I had signed up for Lemon recipes and I had only two and this simple one had to be my third one.

I was not happy with the bread and wanted to bake again but could not. Now its time to post for Blogging Marathon #46 and I am not ready so this old picture will have to do.
