INGREDIENTS

 

½ cup coconut oil or butter

¾ cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

½ cup milk

½ cup of chopped walnuts (optional)

Grated peel (zest) of 1 lemon

Juice of 1 lemon

Pre heat the oven to 175 C (350 F). Cream the butter and sugar together. Mix in the beaten egg. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together. Add to the butter mixture alternately with the milk, beating constantly. Stir in the lemon zest and nuts (optional). Pour into a greased loaf tin. Bake for 1 hour.
