Key Lime Quick Bread

I grew up on quick breads. From pumpkin to banana to lemon, my mom made them all. And they were dense, moist, and incredible. Then came the romance we all have with Key Lime Anything, and I reworked her tangy lemon bread recipe to make it an absolute knockout with lime! It has the homey texture of a truly-made-with-love quick bread, yet the addictive flavor of Key Lime-- sweet! Such a surprise from the usual fare, and what a great gift, as well. Our four kids devour it (I usually make two for this reason!) and it's also a hit at potlucks, luncheons, and dinners. And here's a great idea: Use it to make French toast! Ooh-la-la! This recipe makes TWO loaves, but can be cut in half if you wish.

JoniHilton Key Lime Quick Bread
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups cooking oil
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 6 tablespoons grated lime zest
  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two loaf pans with nonstick spray. In a large bowl, beat sugar, oil, and eggs. Mix in flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add milk and lime peel. Pour into pans and bake 45-55 minutes or until a knife inserted in center tests clean.

Step 2

Remove pans from oven. While still hot, run a knife around edges. Stir lime juice with powdered sugar to make glaze and pour it over hot loaves. Cool, then remove from pans.

    You can make this same bread with lemon zest and juice (add some poppyseeds)... and you can also add coconut, white chocolate chips, nuts, or all three!
