This Simple Lemon Loaf is not to be underestimated because of its name. It's a breeze to make, but the taste and texture of the soft, buttery loaf makes it feel like it came from a bakery oven, instead of the one just in your own home.
For Dani, from Meraki Lane, wrote about this loaf on her blog, "My mother would make something delicious like her famous lemon loaf, and it would take all of my strength and willpower not to eat the entire thing in one sitting.
"This loaf is simple to make and tastes delicious with butter and a spot of tea. Enjoy!"
Here's how you can make this fine pastry at home.
Preheat oven to 325ºF.
Melt 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter, then cream together with 1 cup white sugar.
Add 2 eggs, the zest of 1 lemon, 2 teaspoons baking powder, and a pinch of salt to the butter and sugar. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Then, add ½ cup milk. Stir again until combined.
Pour the mixture into a loaf pan and bake for an hour. While you wait, cut your zested lemon in half and juice ½ of it.
When the time is up, remove from the oven, then pour your lemon juice over the bread. You can also sprinkle on some powdered sugar if you'd like!
When the bread is cool to handle, slice, serve, and enjoy!
