  • tsp fresh lemon juice


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tsp fresh lemon juice

  • Let the bread rest in the pan for 10 minutes before removing the loaf onto a wire cooling rack. Cool completely.
  • While the bread is cooling, make the glaze by combining the powdered sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl and mix until smooth. 
  • Drizzle the glaze over the bread and enjoy!
