Yes, more lemon. Sorry, I can’t help it. I just love lemon! 😲 🍋

Friends, this loaf cake is crazy easy and if you try it, you will not be disappointed. It’s yummy.

The Ingredients List:

  • Flour + Baking powder + Salt
  • Lemon juice + zest
  • Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Plain Greek yogurt
  • Oil: canola or vegetable
  • Additional for glaze: Powdered sugar

No Plain Greek Yogurt on Hand? Use sour cream instead!

Fun fact: I made this cake twice last week. The first time wasn’t a complete success due to my new oven, so, I didn’t even add the glaze. It was still amazing without it. So, if you wish to go without the glaze or cut back on it, it will still be delicious.

Remember: Don’t over mix your batter! A few lumps are just fine. You want the batter to have no wet spots, but, don’t beat it like crazy.
