Sliced lemon loaf on wooden cutting board and a plate with two pieces of lemon loaf

Lemon loaf is like a little ray of sunshine, especially on a rainy day. If you find yourself at home without a fully stocked fridge or pantry and craving something sweet, this lemon loaf will do the trick. When ingredients are scarce, I usually turn to coffee cake or banana bread. But during the spring and summer months, I’m inspired to bake something a bit lighter and brighter, like this humble yet impressive lemon loaf. So, if you’ve got a lemon in your kitchen, you’re all set.

As a self-professed chocoholic, lemon desserts never really caught my eye. But I have to tell you, this lemon cake has completely won me over! There’s just something about its moist, spongy texture and tart, fresh flavor that’s absolutely irresistible. The true star of the show, though, is the sweet glaze that you pour over the top. It seeps into the cake, adding an extra layer of deliciousness.

This lemon loaf is perfect with a cup of tea. Or coffee. That's actually how I first fell for a certain slice of lemony goodness at a certain coffee house. But guess what? This homemade version is just as good—if not better. So, next time you’re up for a baking adventure, give this lemon loaf a whirl. Your taste buds will totally thank you!
