  • Butter a loaf pan with a 6 cup capacity and dust with cookie of plain bread crumbs.
  • Sift together flour and baking powder.
  • Melt butter.
  • In a mixing bowl combine butter and sugar.

  • Then add sifted dry ingredients and milk alternately.
  • Mix in lemon extract.
  • Fold in almonds and lemon zest.

  • Two or three minutes before the cake is done, prepare the glaze.
  • Heat juice and sugar until the sugar is melted, but do not boil.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and cool for three minutes.
  • Then glaze the cake in the pan by brushing the hot liquid over the cake, letting it soak in slowly- this should take about five minutes.
