    1. 1
      To make the bread: Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease and flour bottom and halfway up the sides of an 8x4x2inch loaf pan; set aside.
    2. 2
      In a large mixing bowl, cream the softened butter or margarine and the 1 cup granulated sugar together with an electric mixer until fluffy.
    3. 3
      Add the eggs and the 1 teaspoon lemon peel. Beat the mixture well.
    4. 4
      Stir together the flour and baking powder. Add the flour-baking powder mixture to the sugar mixture alternately with the milk, beating well after each addition.
    5. 5
      Stir in the chopped pecans.
    6. 6
      Spread the batter in the prepared loaf pan and bake in the 350° oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center of the bread comes out clean.
    7. 7
      If necessary, cover the bread with aluminum foil for the last 15 minutes of baking to prevent overbrowning.
    8. 8
      Meanwhile, to make the Lemon Glaze: Stir together the 1/4 cup granulated sugar, the lemon juice and the 1 teaspoon lemon peel. Spoon the Lemon Glaze over the hot bread. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes.

      Lovely flavor. I think letting it set, wrapped in plastic, for a couple days might make it easier to spread with the orange cream cheese - but couldn't be easier - or tastier!
