This time of year, when the days are still short and the weather is cold and dreary, a lemon loaf is like a little ray of sunshine. It’s the perfect treat to enjoy with a warm cup of tea and your loved ones.
To make this lemon loaf, you’ll need all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, granulated sugar, eggs, vegetable oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, milk, and vanilla extract. The lemon glaze is made with confectioners’ sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest.
Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C), grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan, and whisk together the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Beat the wet ingredients together in a separate large mixing bowl, and then add the dry ingredients in two additions, alternating with the milk and vanilla extract. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes.
Once the lemon loaf is done baking, let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely. Whisk together the glaze ingredients until smooth and pour it over the cooled loaf. Slice, serve, and enjoy! Don’t forget to share this recipe with your friends and family so they can enjoy a slice of sunshine too.
