Limoncello Lemon Loaf
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup whole milk or vanilla greek yogurt
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 lemon zested
- 3 Tbsp Limoncello or lemon juice
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup powered sugar
- 1 1/2-2 Tbsp Limoncello or lemon juice
- 1 tsp lemon zest
To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
To a large bowl, add the eggs, milk or yogurt, sugar, vegetable oil, lemon zest, and limoncello or lemon juice. Whisk well.
In another bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk well.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix the batter well by hand. Do not over mix.
Spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan generously with cooking spray with flour, like Bakers Joy. Pour the batter into the pan.
Bake about 35-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool the cake in the pan for 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.
In the meantime, make the glaze by combining limoncello, (or lemon juice) powered sugar and lemon zest. Whisk well. You want a smooth pourable consistency. If needed, add more limoncello to make it the proper consistency.
When the cake is completely cool, drizzle the limoncello glaze over it.
Slice and enjoy!
