4In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt and add this to egg mixture alternately with milk. Add pecans and grated lemon zest, blending until mixed thoroughly. Pour batter into prepared pan, spreading into corners with spoon.

5Bake on middle shelf of oven 1 hour, until light golden. Test doneness with a skewer. If it comes out clean and dry the bread is done.
