Lemon loaf cake or lemon bread is one of my favorite quick breads to make.
This Starbucks Copycat Recipe For Lemon Loaf Cake is so easy to make, your family will want you to make it all the time!
I think a freshly baked loaf makes a wonderful gift. I love to take a freshly baked ‘something’ when I’m invited out for dinner or just because.
That sweet and tart citrus flavour wrapped up in a dense loaf, when the crumbs all stick together on your fork, you know what I mean? Oh and make sure there is lots of creamy white glaze drizzled all over it.
This is a quick breads recipe, which means when mixing the batter, to use a very light hand when combining the dry ingredients into the wet.
Just like muffins or other quick bread recipes, careful mixing will result in a dense, but very moist and tender Lemon Loaf Cake.
