Lemon drizzle loaf is a classic bake sale treat. With its tangy and delicious lemon flavour and it’s sweet yet zesty icing it’s a favourite for all the family.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a treat but this version has much lower sugar than your usual lemon drizzle without any compromise on flavour.
Leaving off the icing is another way to further lower the sugar content but let’s not take away all the fun. If you think your kids won’t love the taste of lemon give it a go anyway, they might well surprise you. Lemon in a cake is far removed from lemon as a fruit and from lemon in a savoury context.
You can slice this loaf and freeze it in slices making it super convenient to keep in the freezer either iced or un-iced.
There quite a few lemon recipes on the blog why not check them out down below.
Lemons are one of those fruits that you can find pretty much year-round but this loaf is best made when they are in peak season because they will be at their freshest and their juiciest.
Eating this loaf takes me straight back to my childhood, my grandma loved to bake and used to sneak lemon into everything.
She never bought lemons though, there were always neighbours with overly abundant trees that they were desperate to off load. It certainly makes me wish I had the same now when their price skyrockets!
You can’t beat this loaf for a delicious treat for afternoon tea or morning tea.
