1/3 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
grated rind of one lemon
1/3 cup sugar
juice of one lemon
Cream shortening, gradually add 1 cup of sugar, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt, add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix well after each addition. Stir in rind.
Pour batter into a greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 by 3" loafpan or whatever loaf pan you use. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes, (mine gets done faster). Combine the 1/3 cup sugar with the juice of the lemon, stirring well and immediately pour over the bread after you take it out of the oven.
