Tips & Variations

YUMMY! Nice and lemony. I was a wee bit skeptical about the jello, but it is perfect! As Meyer lemons are in season right now, I used them, they lent a lovely tart sweet flavour. I made one big loaf in a large bread pan as I don't have 2 regular ones. Took the same amount of time to bake. Will be making this again for sure. Thanks for sharing your recipe Jeff!
