Limoncello Lemon Bread

6 TBLS butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
lemon zest of 1 lemon
2 tsp homemade limoncello

1/2 cup sugar & 2 TBLS homemade Limoncello

Cream together butter and sugar until light. Add eggs & lemon zest, Limoncello and mix well. Sift flour with salt and baking powder. Add this to creamed mixture, alternating with a bit of milk at a time. Pour into a greased 9x5x2 baking bread pan. Bake this in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes or until light golden brown.

Mix the glaze very well and let stand while the bread is baking. Just before taking the loaf out of the oven, spoon Limoncello glaze over it and put back into the oven for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
