Good recipe, but please use REAL LEMON JUICE. The extract doesn't impart any lemon flavor. I use a full 1/2 cup of lemon juice (the bottled juice is perfect for this), 3 teaspoons of poppy seed and buttermilk instead of regular milk. The buttermilk improves the texture of the bread, creating a lighter, fluffier version. If you like your bread a little denser, than stick with regular milk. I baked mine in 2 loaf pans instead of three. For the Glaze: 1/4 cup orange juice, 4-5 tablepsoons powdered sugar. Don't use original recipe for the glaze, it's way too sweet. Always use powdered sugar when making a glaze for ANYTHING. (3 star for original recipe, 5 stars for alterations. Great base recipe though)
