    cup sugar
  • 1/2
    cup macadamia nuts, toasted, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/4
    cups milk
  • 1
    tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 3
    tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 1/2
    teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2
    teaspoon salt

    egg
  • 1/4
    cup sugar
  • 3
    tablespoons lemon juice

Steps

    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 9x5-inch loaf pan with shortening.

    In large bowl, beat all ingredients except 1/4 cup sugar and the lemon juice with electric mixer on medium speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Pour into pan.
  • 3
    Bake 55 to 65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

    Immediately poke holes in top of bread about 1 inch apart, using long wooden pick. In small bowl, mix 1/4 cup sugar and the lemon juice; drizzle evenly over top of bread. Cool bread in pan 10 minutes. Loosen sides of bread from pan; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour, before slicing.

  • To toast nuts, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350°F oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
  • Love a loaf a lot when you can bake it ahead and have it ready in the freezer up to 2 months before serving.
