Lemon bread is a light, delicious bread with a hint of vanilla flavor to it. This particular one has a great crusty outside layer and is very moist on the inside. It’s a wonderful combination using fresh lemons.
This recipe is adapted from this Vanilla Lemon Bread, so if you do need to make it in the oven, that is the oven instructions.
Can you make Ninja Foodi Lemon Bread gluten-free?
This bread is easy to make gluten-free with a simple swap of flour, using gluten-free all-purpose flour instead of regular flour. I use Better Batter, but you can use your favorite flour this is a 1:1 switch.
Tips for Making Lemon Bread:
My original recipe uses pecans; however, I’m allergic to pecans so I decided to skip those this time. I did adapt it just a bit from the original. I also did not do a glaze this time, I simply sprinkled it with powdered sugar.
This is going to come out as a thick dough, so you will be spreading it in the pan. It’s best to use a spatula to spread it out evenly. Remember if you use a bundt pan, the top is going to end up being the bottom so if it’s not perfectly even, it’ll still turn out well.
Does lemon bread use real lemons?
Lemon bread does use real lemons or a real lemon. This recipe only uses 1 lemon, you’ll use the juice from the lemon and also the peel to add lemon zest to the bread.
It’s a wonderful spring bread that’s perfect in the spring or summer months, pair it with some coffee as a pick me up on a busy afternoon.
I don’t know about you but even being home all the time now…I still feel busy especially with schooling the kids. That’s been a fun adventure. How about you?
