Lemon Bread

 Lemons are a spring flavor.  I have not done a quick bread in a while, so why not lemon bread? It’s tart and moist and a great brunch or breakfast addition.  Hope you like it.  (You can see how I’m quarantining.)
2 cups AP flour
1 stick butter at room temperature
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons lemon zest
1/4 cup lemon juice (fresh squeezed is best but you be you)
(If you want more lemon flavor, add two more tablespoons of lemon juice)
Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar (maybe less depending on how thick you like it)
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350
In bowl 1, mix flour, baking powder and  salt
In bowl 2, mix softened butter, brown sugar and sugar until smooth
Add eggs one at a time and mix
