Lemon Loaf

Leave a Comment

Possibly one of the tastiest lemon cakes I've made and probably one of my favourite cakes in general. I can't remember where I originally found the recipe from but thank you for this fool proof number!

2 Cups of Self Raising Flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Bicarb of Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Caster Sugar
Zest of a Lemon
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 1/2 Tbsp Water
1 Cup Plain Soya Yogurt
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Lemon Juice
50g Dairy Free Butter (melted)

Lemon Glaze
1 Cup Icing Sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp Lemon Juice (and you may have to add a little water)

Preaheat your oven to 160c and line a loaf tray with greaseproof paper.

Add the flour, baking powder, soda, vanilla extract, salt, lemon zest and sugar to a bowl.

Then add in the water, oil, yoghurt, lemon juice and melted butter and quickly combine all the ingredients into a smooth batter but be careful not to over mix.

Pour the batter into the tray and bake in the oven for 35-45 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Once removed from oven allow to cool for about 2 minutes before carefully removing from the tray and leaving to cool on a wire rack.

Mix the icing sugar and lemon juice to a creamy mixture (you may have to add some water if the mixture is too thick) spread over the cake and let it firm up before slicing into it.
