Lemon Loaf

This is my little indulgence, it’s basically pound cake, but the lemon flavors make it oh so special, last time I made it I baked in in a tiny bundt cake pan, which took much less baking time of course, but made for cute little individual cakes.

Lemon Loaf


1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp softened butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon extract
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup vegetable oil


for the icing:

1 cup and 1 Tbsp powdered sugar
2 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp lemon extract


In large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

In separate bowl, blend eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla, lemon extract, lemon juice, and oil.

Mix wet ingredients into dry until smooth.

Pour into well greased loaf pan.


Let the cake cool, then mix up the icing and drizzle it over the cake.


Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees
