I love lemons, that sweet-tart taste - YUM
I'm writing this post several days after I made these, we ate half, gave the other half to my parents and a loaf to my sister & family and I'm salivating just thinking about it...delicious!
This recipe makes 2 loaves.
I lined my pans with parchment paper and then sprayed them with cooking spray.
Mixed the dry ingredients, then the wet and folded them together to create a batter I could just sit down to and eat with a spoon.
Divided the batter evenly in the loaf pans and into the oven.
Then onto the glaze..... MMmmmmm
Drizzle on the glaze..... *wiping away drool
Look at these cute little loaf/bread containers, who doesn't love pokadots? Once completely I packaged them up all pretty :)
It's sweet, juicy & tart......totally craving a slice right now! STAT!
Lemon Loaf – Delicious!
I always double the recipe
3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 cup confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice, or as necessary for consistency
Preheat oven to 350F.
Line a 9x5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper (I like this method best)
Into a large bowl, add the eggs, sugar, sour cream, and whisk until smooth and combined.
Drizzle in the oil while whisking to combine.
Add the lemon zest, lemon extract, and whisk to combine.
Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and stir until just combined, don't overmix.
Turn the batter out into prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula.
Bake for about 50 minutes, or until top is domed, set, and toothpick inserted in the center crack comes out clean.
Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before removing from pan, then allow oto cool completely, about an hour..
In a small bowl, add the confectioner's sugar and slowly drizzle in the lemon juice while whisking until smooth and combined. You may need to play with the sugar and lemon juice amounts as necessary for desired consistency and flavour.
Drizzle evenly over loaf and allow to set.
