Jessica’s Lemon Chia Bread
1/2 cup butter or magerine
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
rind gratings of 1 small lemon
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup sugar
+ Chia seeds to sprinkle over the finished product ( and you can throw some in the batter too for an extra boost if you want!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Slowly add eggs until mixture becomes creamy. Add milk and mix thoroughly. In a separate bowl mix remaining dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt) and add the grated lemon rind. Pour dry mixture into the moist batter and stir to combine. Pour batter into a greased 9x5 pan and bake for 55 minutes to an hour. Shortly before the loaf finishes baking combine the lemon juice and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat low and stir mixture until the sugar dissolves to create the glaze.
Allow bread to cool. Poke the bread with a toothpick to create holes over the top of the loaf. Spoon the glaze over the bread evenly. Top with Chia seeds and devour.
