Lemon Loaf Recipe With Lemon

Sharing is caring!

Lemon Loaf Recipe is now in your Hand. Now I will show you details this recipes as I done it.  The addition of lemon juice as well as lemon zest to the batter makes this loaf very flavourful.  I have included directions for a glaze but not for icing as I don’t think the loaf needs any more sweetness.  This recipe makes one 8″ or 9″ loaf.

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large or extra large eggs

  • Stir in the lemon zest and vanilla.
  • Combine the buttermilk and the lemon juice.
