"Starbucks" Lemon Loaf

I'm going to make this again. Like, today. I love the simplicity of this loaf and the quick icing makes it even better.

I made one small change that I'm going to keep for future loaves. Instead of lemon extract, I used orange extract, and for the frosting I used lemon juice. YUM.


  • 1 1/2 cups FLOUR
  • 1/2 teaspoon BAKING SODA
  • 1/2 teaspoon BAKING POWDER
  • 1/2 teaspoon SALT
  • 3 EGGS
  • 1 cup SUGAR
  • 2 tablespoon BsUTTER; Softened.
  • 1 teaspoon VANILLA
  • 1 teaspoon Orange EXTRACT
  • 1/3 cup LEMON JUICE
  • 1/2 cup OIL

Lemon Icing:
  • 1 cup POWDERED SUGAR; Plus 1 Tablespoon.
  • 2 tablespoons WHOLE MILK; I Used 2%.
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

1. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl.

2. Use a mixer to blend together the eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla, lemon extract and lemon juice in a medium bowl.

3. Pour wet ingredient into the dry ingredients and blend until smooth.

4. Add oil and mix well.

5. Pour batter into a well greased 9x5-inch loaf pan.

6. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a toothpick stuck into center of the cake comes out clean.
7. Make the lemon icing by combining all the icing ingredients in a small bowl with an electric mixer on low speed.

8. When the loaf is cool, remove it from pan and frost the top with the icing.
9. Let the icing set up before slicing.
