I was looking through my frig and found a partially used bottle of key lime juice that i wanted to use up. I was in the mind set of making bread that could be frozen for quick breakfast, so looked online and found this recipe. It was on my favorite recipe website http://www.recipezaar.com/
I hope you all enjoy. If you want to look it up on recipezaar, it is recipe #249793.
Key Lime Bread
2/3 c butter, softened (i used margarine)
2T lime zest (because i only had juice, i skipped this)
2 T key lime juice (I added 3 to make up for zest)
3t baking powder
1 t salt
1c milk (we were out so i reconstituted some dry milk)
1c chopped nuts
2/3c confectioners sugar
1-2T key lime juice
In a large bowl cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and mix well. Add lime peel, juice, and vanilla and mix well. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add to creamed mixture alternating with milk. Fold in nuts
Pour into 2 greased 9x5 pans and bake for 50-55 mins at 350 or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes and then remove from pan and place on wire rack to cool completely. Make glaze and top when cooled.
Notes: I did not remove my from the pan (it was late) and they turned out fine.
