2 eggs, beaten
1 c. sugar
6 T. shortening
1 lemon, juice and grated rind
1/2 c. milk
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1½ c. flour
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1/2 cup sugar
juice from 1 lemon
Mix the eggs, sugar, shortening, lemon juice and rind together and add the milk. Sift the baking powder, salt and flour together and stir into the batter.
Fold the nuts into the mixture and pour into a loaf pan that has been lined with foil and greased.
Bake in a preheated 350° F. over for 50-60 minutes.
Mix the sugar and lemon juice together in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
Pour over the bread while the loaf is still hot. Let stand until cool and remove from the foil.
Wrap in wax paper or plastic wrap and chill thoroughly.
