lemon loaf with lemon glaze

Updated: Jan 9, 2023

This lemon loaf is so delicious and very low maintenance! No electric mixer needed - I just used a whisk to mix the bread batter and it came out perfect. The glaze is just powdered sugar, a little milk, and lemon juice mixed together and drizzled over the bread. It's the perfect sweet treat to have with coffee in the morning or after dinner as a light dessert.

Hope you enjoy xo
