Lemon Bread | How to Make Quick Savory Lemon Bread

Lemon Bread a quick and easy savoury lemon bread with lots of olives and jalapenos. Quick bread is American style bread which is leavened without yeast or eggs and doesn’t require as much time as traditional bread needs.

I wanted the bread to be filled with lots of flavors so I added olives and jalapenos to make it more zesty and delicious. The bread was for a get-together at a friend’s house and that’s why I couldn’t take any pictures of the inside. But it was really amazing and full of exotic flavors and freshness of lemons.

    I made this bread a few days ago. I used all wholewheat flour. The recipe called for 2 tablespoons jalapeno pepper. I used 2 teaspoons but the bread was stil quite hot. However, the texture was great. I will make it again, but with less pepper.

    Is this a typo? Thanks

    1. Hey Lana, Thanks for trying the recipe. Using whole wheat is a nice and healthy idea.
      We love eating spicy food. I used the exact amount of peppers but as you mentioned the use of fewer peppers, I am glad it worked for you.
