I am wondering if I could make these in cupcake sizes rather than loaves. I want to include them in some baskets I'm going to prepare.

That’s a great idea! Monitor

That’s a great idea! Monitor the baking time, since it will differ from original recipe.

I was wondering if the loaf can be made in advance, then refrigerated or frozen, and glazed the day to be served? Would this affect the integrity of taste, etc.?

That is an excellent idea.

That is an excellent idea. You can certainly bake and then freeze the loaf. Glaze it once it has thawed. This is a much loved recipe here, we hope you enjoy it as well.

Lemon coconut loaf

I used to make a lemon loaf almost identical to this (except for the coconut) every February during the worst howling winter weather. It was a tradition, along with Indian Pudding baking in the oven all day. But the last couple of years it seems February didn't have quite the worst howling winter weather any more! I make it anyway, I will try this version because the picture is just awesome!

Your comment comes as quite a surprise to us. We have made this recipe on several occasions and have heard from numerous people how much they love this recipe. Is there a chance you forgot to incorporate an ingredient? The buttermilk and lemon zest plus extract are particularly important for moisture and taste. The loaf should come out cake-like rather than dense like a bread.
