Lemon Loaf with Lemon Glaze
Ingredients for Lemon Loaf
3 eggs, room temperature
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tablespoons lemon zest
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup oil
11/2 cups flour
2 Tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 Tablespoons lemon juice
Directions for Lemon Loaf Cake
Preheat the oven to 350″. Prepare a 9 x 5″ loaf pan with baking spray, line with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, crack and add the eggs, add the sour cream and sugar. Whisk to combine. Zest the lemon and add to the mixing bowl along with the vanilla extract, lemon juice and the oil, mix until combined.
Place a sieve over the bowl and sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the wet ingredients. Use a spatula to fold the dry ingredients into the wet. Mix until just combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-55 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool on a white rack.
Directions for the Lemon Glaze
Mix together the powdered sugar and the lemon juice until smooth. Start with 1 tablespoon of the juice, then add more to get the consistency that you like. Pour over the cooled cake and let sit for an hour before serving.

Notes & Tips
You can substitute lemon extract for the vanilla extract
The loaf will stay fresh for 3 days in an airtight container. You can also freeze it. I like to freeze mine without the glaze.
