Iced Lemon Loaf

This is a delicious knock-off of a certain coffee chain's lemon loaf. The lemon extract plus the lemon juice make the citrus really shine, and adding the lemon glaze gives one last punch of lemon flavor and ensures the loaf will stay moist!

The ingredient list for this quick bread can easily be found in your pantry, and it's the perfect time to use citrus in baked goods!

Iced 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 melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon extract
1/3 cup lemon juice (juice from 1 lemon)
1/2 cup vegetable oil

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder & soda and salt.  In a separate bowl, mix eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla, lemon juice & extract, and oil.  Pour wet ingredients into dry, and mix until smooth.  Pour into a greased 9x5 pan, and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

Lemon Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp lemon extract
1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix ingredients and pour over loaf when cool.
