"This recipe was developed by my good friend, Joyce. It was written for a bread machine, but I'm sure it could be adapted. Light bread with a wonderful lemon flavor! Try toasted...Yum!"

  1. Pour both amounts of warm water into a bread machine and add butter, eggs, lemon extract, bread flour, sugar, and yeast in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough setting and start the machine.
  2. Grease 3 8-inch round cake pans.
  3. Remove dough when cycle is finished; cut dough into 3 equal-sized pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and place into a prepared cake pan; cover and let rise for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Bake loaves in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I usually brush melted butter on top of each loaf and sprinkle with white sanding sugar.
