Delicious, lemony bread with a cake-like texture and sweetness. I made some changes based on others' comments. I used butter instead of shortening, 1 1/2 Tbsp poppyseeds instead of nuts, and added the juice of one (small) lemon to the batter, along with 1/2 tsp of (homemade, so strong) lemon extract. I also used about half lemon zest, half orange zest, and substituted 1/4 c orange juice for half of the milk. Definitely watch cooking time. Mine was done after only 45 minutes--good thing I checked, since I didn't believe it would be done so soon. I poured the glaze on as soon as I got it out of the oven and let it soak into the bread. It worked great, although I had trouble getting it out of the pan after it had cooled some. It's very good but I find it a bit too sweet. Next time I won't use orange juice and may reduce the sugar in the glaze.
