Best Ever Lemon Loaf Recipe
This Best Ever Lemon Loaf Recipe is our Family Favorite! The kids and hubby can NOT get enough of it! So delicious!
I admit, I love it too! It’s so lemony and it just tastes so fresh. I have tried a lot of other Lemon Loaf Recipes in the passed, and none of them quite made the cut. After much trial and error… this one has exceeded our expectations, time and time again and I will NEVER need another Lemon Loaf Recipe again!
I find this recipe to be quite easy to follow and very simple in the ingredients! Which is great because it honestly tastes like you’re a master chef. It is so moist and melts in your mouth that you just may have trouble to refrain from eating the entire Lemon Loaf. My Kids are like vultures when this comes out of the oven and I barely get time to glaze and cool it!
Another great thing about this Lemon Loaf, is that the glaze just brings the entire recipe together. With 4 Simple ingredients, your glaze will come out perfect, lemony and sweet. Every single time.
If you have an oven and a loaf pan, you too can create this Lemon masterpiece. Ensure that you Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees and then grease and flour your loaf pan to ensure the loaf doesn’t stick to the sides of the pan!
This Best Ever Lemon Loaf Recipe, DOES NOT need to be served with anything other than a smile. It’s just the complete package on it’s own! So delicious everyone will want seconds. Be warned, if you make this once, you WILL be begged to make it again soon after!
SO without furthur ado, I give you…

What type of cream- heavy cream, light cream, 1/2 and 1/2?
I can not believe that I forgot to add that! Thank you for asking. Half and Half cream is the best for this recipe 🙂
Does this freeze well??? Was going to glaze it after it thaws out
It does freeze well! I actually freeze it all the time.
I was unable to print this recipe so will not be able to try it. The print button brings up an advertisement and will not let you go to a printable recipe. I understand the need for advertising but this is not appropriate since it blocks the ability to print.
I don’t know why there was an advertisement popping up. I just had a few other people test it and they said they weren’t having problems. I make sure not to put pop up advertisements on this page because how much they can obstruct people’s views and turn people off the page. Please try to print it again and if it doesn’t work please let me know.
I love lemon loaf. I will try this. Thanks!
