Lemon Loaf

I'm not a crazy fan of lemon.  Sure, it's alright, but I prefer not to squeeze it in my tea or over my seafood. This loaf has the taste of lemon without it being too lemony. For me, it's perfect.

1 1/2 C flour
2 eggs
3/4 C milk
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick butter
1 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
the juice of one lemon and the zest of one lemon

In a large bowl, cream the sugar, butter, and vanilla.  Add an egg one at a time making sure the mixture is well blended before adding the other egg.  Stir in lemon zest, lemon juice, and milk.  Blend well.  Add dry ingredients and beat until well blended.  If it seems a little dry, add a splash of milk.  Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour.
