Like many others, I added the zest of a lemon, knowing from experience that lemon pudding mix alone wouldn't give it enough lemon flavor. I think the zest of 2-3 lemons would really be much better. I also made a glaze of lemon juice, powdered sugar, and a little milk (just to thin it out). I drizzled half of the glaze over the top of the loaves just after they came out of the oven and then drizzled the remaining glaze over tops after the bread had cooled for about an hour. Everyone loved it at work; they ate more of mine than they did my co-worker's chocolate version (although I think the chocolate bread would be good if you added a little cocoa and/or some choc. chips, peanut butter chips, or nuts to the batter.)
Finally, my loaves took much longer than an hour to bake. I would give them at least 15 to 20 minutes extra, depending on the heat of your oven. But overall, this recipe is a keeper. Thanks so much for sharing it!
