Scoop into a greased 8-inch loaf pan and bake at 350°F for 45-50 minutes. When taken out of the oven, combine the sugar and lemon juice for the glaze and pour evenly over the top.

This is delicious, but really, really crumbly!! Could it be because I used brown rice flour?? I will definitely try again!

Since you switched from a gluten flour (unbleached white flour) to a gluten free flour (brown rice flour) you will need to add a binder of either xanthan gum (3/4 tsp per cup of flour) or guar gum (1 tsp per cup of flour).

I made one substitution of Almond milk for the milk above. When mixed with the lemon juice it 'curdled' a bit and looked rather unappealing.
The finished baked bread was very lemony so I would suggest cutting the lemon to half the amount and using the grated rind instead.

I LOVE this recipe especially when I substitute unbleached white flour with gluten free flour. I've tried both versions but the gluten free version is my favorite. It brings out more of the lemon flavor.
