Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (190°C). Grease and flour 9 x 5-in. (23 x 13 cm) loaf pan; set aside.
  2. Beat Becel® salted margarine sticks with sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in lemon peel and salt. Gradually beat in flour on low speed just until blended. Evenly spoon into prepared pan.
  3. Bake 1 hour. Cover loosely with aluminum foil and bake an additional 5 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes on wire rack; remove from pan and cool completely. Drizzle, if desired, with lemon glaze*.

*Lemon Glaze: Combine 2/3 cup (150 mL) icing sugar with 2 tsp. (10 mL) lemon juice until smooth. Add more lemon juice, if necessary, to get desired consistency.

RECIPE TIP:

Also works terrific with replacing 1 cup (250 mL) white flour with 1 cup (250 mL) wheat flour.
