Lime Bread Recipe

What do you do when you buy limes in bulk, and have a bunch leftover to use up?  Well, you make my aunt Carolyn's wonderful lime bread recipe!  It's delicious!
Ingredients:
3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tsp. grated lime peel

Combine ingredients.  Stir until moistened.  Bake in greased loaf pan at 350* for 1 hour 10 minutes or until done.  Cool.  Prepare glaze and drizzle over top.

Glaze:
4 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tbsp. fresh lime juice

Hope you enjoy this as much as we do!  Do you have any recipes passed down from family that you love?

Oh this is brilliant; we love limes here!

Hmmm, passed down recipes...my Dad's beef and noodles, it was his favourite and it's always a hit.

I have never heard of lime bread, but it sounds really good. And passed down recipes...I have quite a few, especially this time of year! But one of my favorites is kugel, which is a sweet noodle/cheese dish, and we have it every year on Christmas Eve. Yum!

Oh My .... this looks so yummy!! My hubby is in the process of re-creating a recipe that his mother made - beef barley soup. Once he gets it perfected we'll send his siblings the recipe and maybe we'll keep the tradition going.

I will eat lime anything. This sounds interesting. A shot of tequila on the side maybe?

Buttons said...

Oh now this sounds good I was going to make lemon but I think I will give it a twist:) B

Never heard of lime bread but it sounds wonderful. I bet it smelled great baking.

Barbara said...

Yum! I'll have to try this. I make a lot of lemon desserts for the same reason! ;)

Sally said...

Wow! Not only does this sound good, it looks delish!!

Have a great day, Lisa! I hope it's not as gloomy there as here. :)

That sounds so good. I would have to substitute the sugar and use different flour... I bet it tastes great.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I'm sure I would like it since I love citrus flavors!

Ginny said...

Oh my gosh, I have never heard of lime bread! And easy! Now I am going to buy some limes and make it! One thing, I do not have a loaf pan! And don't want to buy one just for this. What do you think about a 9X9 or something? Of course then it would look more like cornbread, but as long as it tastes just as good...!

I've never heard of lime bread before, but it sounds delicious! I am so intrigued! Next time I have extra limes on hand I'm trying this out.

I just tried and posted about an easy cobbler recipe my grandma passed down to me. It is really yummy! I love old recipes :)

Susan Evans said...

That bread looks delicious! :)

Mary said...

That bread sounds good. My favorite is a sugar cookie recipe that you do not roll out..just drop style and frost after.

Sunnybrook Farm said...

That sounds interesting, I would have never thought of using them in something like that but it should work!

Michelle said...

Can't say that I have any passed down recipes, but the lime bread does sound interesting.
