INGREDIENTS
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1/4 cup cooking oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

GLAZE:
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom, and 1/2 inch up the sides of a 8x4x2-inch loaf pan.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture. Set aside.
3. In another medium mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients (except for glaze). Add all at once to the dry ingredients, and stir until just moistened (the batter should be lumpy - don't overmix!)
4. Pour into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for about 10 minutes.
5. Combine glaze ingredients. Remove bread from pan; immediately drizzle with glaze. Allow to cool completely on wire rack.
