Lemon Loaf

If you're a lemon lover, you'll love this lemon loaf.

I'm longing for Starbucks lemon loaf,
and I see recipes on the internet.
There's no Starbucks in this region,
so I had to make this copycat
lemon loaf.
It did not disappoint.
It is delicious.


1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt, if you use salted
butter, omit the salt.
(Optional zest of 1 lemon.) 

1 cup sugar
2 tbsp butter softened
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon extract
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup vegetable oil.


In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda,
baking powder, lemon zest, and salt.

In a larger bowl, use a mixer to blend together the
 sugar and butter, add the eggs, vanilla and 
lemon extracts, lemon juice and oil.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients
 and blend until smooth.

Pour batter into a greased 9x5" loaf pan.

Bake 350 degF.  (325degF for a glass dish)
 for 45 minutes 
(depending on your oven and your pan, 
dark pans and glass pans, 
 cook the contents more 
quickly than light pans).
or until a
 toothpick inserted into 
the middle comes out clean.

Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes
 before turning it out onto a wire rack 
to cool completely.
It is normal to have a crack
 down the middle of quick breads.

Lemon Glaze
1 cup icing sugar/powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp lemon extract.
Add more milk, if too thick.

When the loaf has cooled,
 remove from the pan 
and top with the glaze.
