Lemon Rosemary Loaf

Lemon Rosemary Loaf

I love the contrast of sweet and savory. And I love lemons. And sweet loaf breads. Add it all together and you get a yummy sweet and savory lemon loaf. Pair it up with some coffee or tea. You'll feel decadent.

  • 1 C sugar
  • 2 large eggs

  • 3/4 tsp ground rosemary
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, lemon juice and peel.
