Lemon Loaf Cake

Simply Homemade Lemon Cake
This is one of our favorite lemon cake recipes. It is simply lemony, moist and amazing! I had several fresh lemons from some of my recent Bountiful Baskets contributions so I immediately thought of this recipe. Even the non-lemon lovers love it!
3 eggs
3 tsp lemon zest (about 2 large lemons)
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 c plain yogurt
1 c sugar
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 c canola oil
  1. Mix the eggs, lemon zest and juice, yogurt and vanilla extract with a whisk.
  2. I use a wooden spoon to mix the dry ingredients into the liquid ingredients.
  3. Add the oil last and fold it into the other ingredients.
  4. Grease the sides of a 9x5 loaf pan. I love parchment paper so I use that to line the bottom of the pan.
  5. Bake in a 350F oven for 50 minutes (depending on your oven). I stick a toothpick in the middle to check if it's done. If the toothpick comes out clean, it's done.
  6. When it's done, I place the pan on a cooling rack for about 10 minutes, then remove the cake and place it on the cooling rack.
  7. Pour lemon glaze over the top. Stir together 1 cup powdered sugar and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice. It should be fairly thin so you can drizzle it over the top and some will even soak into the cake.
  8. I sliced mine into 20 thin slices. Of course thicker slices are the best according to the taste testers!
Enjoy and be blessed!
Love and peace,
