This easy Lemon Glaze Lemon Loaf Cake has a vibrant citrus flavor and a moist, soft crumb. Made with yogurt and butter, the cake is smeared with lemon syrup and coated with a delicious lemongrass icing. It’s an easy recipe that everyone will enjoy.
The classic lemon loaf cake should be in any bakery’s repertoire. I’ve done quite a bit of research and testing, as have my best carrot cake recipes and Victorian sponge cake with strawberry jam. It’s a cake variation, but I found the texture to be too rich. I wanted something lighter.
Flavor is very important here, so I absolutely insisted on using butter in the recipe.
I use Dream Kelly Gold Butter in my bread making. Butter made from grass-fed Irish cows is extremely creamy and delicious.
I used 2 large lemon peels, so if your lemons are small, use at least 3. There is very little lemon flavor in the lemon loaf cake. drizzle and make icing.
Can you freeze lemon loaf cake?
This cake, like any cake, freezes very well. Wrap uni ice cake in plastic wrap or tin foil and set free. To thaw, remove from freezer and allow to come to room temperature. I like to add iced lemongrass after freezing.
Tips on how to make lemon pancakes
Line a 22 x 12cm / 8-9 x 4-5 inch bread pan with baking paper.
Using an electric mixer with either a whisk or spatula attachment, whisk room temperature butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, then add lemon zest and vanilla.
Add room temperature eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape bowl down as needed.
After adding the flour and yogurt, be careful not to over mix the dough.
If there is too much color on the top while baking, loosely cover the cake with foil after about 20 minutes.
When the cake comes out of the oven, pierce it all over with a sharp knife or skewer. Drizzle onto the cake and let it absorb.
After 10 minutes remove the cake from the mold and allow to cool completely on a rack before icing with lemongrass.
