Your family will go nuts over this zesty twist on lemon bread. For extra creaminess use any Almond Breeze Almond-Cashew Blend instead of Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. In a small bowl, combine sugar and lemon zest. Rub together with your fingers until fragrant. Whisk into the flour mixture. Set aside.
In a separate medium bowl, combine the almond milk, oil, eggs, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, vanilla, and almond extract.
Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir until combined. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Place the loaf on a cooling rack and cool for 15 minutes. Loosen the sides of the bread with a knife. Carefully remove loaf from pan. Let cool completely on wire rack.
While the bread is cooling, make the lemon glaze. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice, and almond extract. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the lemon almond bread. Sprinkle sliced almonds over the bread. Cut and serve.

The best flavour of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as white bread.
To made this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it yesterday , then clear it off the next day.
