      1/8  teaspoon      Salt

    2      cup           Water
    1      cup           Sugar
    2      tablespoon    Grated lemon rind
    1      cup           Fresh lemon juice
    2                    Egg whites (opt)
 
 Grease and flour a 9x5 loaf pan for each loaf of bread you are making. Combine
sugar, milk, butter, and eggs; mix well. Blend in flour, baking powder, salt and
grated lemon rind. Turn mixture into pan and bake 1 hour in preheated 350~ oven.
Cool slightly, remove from pan, and set on foil. Meanwhile, prepare glaze.
 Combine sugar and lemon juice in sauce pan. Stir over low heat until sugar
dissolves and glaze is hot. Pour hot glaze slowly over surface of bread. Let
bread cool completely before slicing. To prepare Lemon Ice, combine water and
sugar in a saucepan. Add rind and bring to a boil. Simmer 5 minutes. Let cool.
Add lemon juice and stir. Pour liquid into freezer trays (two for each loaf of
bread) and freeze until set, but not hard. Place in food processor or blender. If
desired, add egg whites (they will make the ice smooth and white), and beat until
smooth. Refreeze for about 3 hours or until firm. When ready to serve, let stand
for a few minutes before scooping out. Serve bread slices with a scoop of lemon
ice on the side.
