Lemon Loaf Recipe – A Refreshing and Delicious Treat for Any Occasion

Lemon Loaf Recipe – A Refreshing and Delicious Treat for Any Occasion

This Easy Lemon Loaf is perfectly tangy and bursting with fresh lemon flavour!


1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
Grated rind from 1 lemon
Juice from 1 lemon
1/4 cup sugar


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a loaf pan by lining it with wax paper. Set aside.
With a mixer cream together the butter and sugar.
Add in the eggs, 1 at a time.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
Add 1/2 of the flour mix to the butter mix.
Then add 1/2 of the milk.
Add the remaining flour mix.
Mix in the remaining milk and lemon gratings.
Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
In the mean time, combine the juice from 1 lemon with 1/4 cup sugar.
When the cake is done baking, take it out of the oven, and pierce holes in it with a knife – make sure to get to the bottom of the loaf so the lemon juice mixture can get right down into the cake. Pour lemon juice/sugar mix over warm cake.
Let sit. This cake is even better the next day.
