Making Lemon Loaf for Easter

 

A slice of homemade Lemon Loaf! 


Every year for Easter I like to bake something yummy for breakfast. This year I wanted something bright, sweet, and perfect for spring. I chose to make a Lemon Loaf. Everyone knows about the Starbucks Lemon Loaf. Those thick and moist pieces of lemony bread, topped with a white, lemon icing. Who doesn't love snuggling in an armchair while sipping a hot latte and snacking on a slice of Lemon Loaf? I've always wanted to make my own at home, so I gave it a try. 

There are tons of Starbucks Copycat Lemon Loaf recipes online. I randomly picked one. I went with the recipe from yellowblissroad.com. If you love the smell and taste of lemons, then this is a fun and delicious sweet bread to bake! It uses a lemon three ways- lemon juice, lemon zest, and lemon extract. I followed the recipe exactly, except for the baking time. It said to bake for 50-60 minutes, but at just 45 minutes my loaf was done. 

You have to be a little patient when baking this Lemon Loaf. It need to cool for an hour or more before you add the icing. After I took some photos of mine, my boys couldn't wait to try a slice. They liked it so much I let them have another one. It will be so good for breakfast tomorrow for Easter, along with some hard boiled eggs. 









Here are two more recipes that are so good for Easter Sunday breakfast for brunch!
