Lemon Loaf

lemon loaf

This recipe is one of my Mom’s favourites, and it was a lunch treat I loved finding. Simple and elegant, it’s a classic.

3 eggs, well beaten

6 tbsp / 90 g melted butter

1 cup / 250 g sugar

1-1/2 tsp / 8 g baking powder

1-1/2 cups /375 g flour

1/2 cup / 125 mL milk

grated rind of 1 lemon

GLAZE: juice of 1 lemon plus 1/3 cup / 90 g icing sugar

Mix eggs with cooled butter, then blend in sugar and mix till a ribbon forms. Sift flour and baking powder together and add gradually, mixing all the while. Stir in milk and lemon rind.

Pour batter into greased loaf pan. Bake at 350F/175 C for 1 hour or until a knife inserted in centre comes out clean.

Immediately on removal from oven, pour glaze over loaf while still in pan. Let cool, then remove from pan.
