Lemon Loaf

Cake Ingredients:

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 Tablespoons butter, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon lemon extract

1/3 cup lemon juice

1/2 cup vegetable oil

Lemon Icing Ingredients:

1 cup powdered sugar plus 1 Tablespoon

2 Tablespoons milk

1/2 teaspoon lemon extract


Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Use a mixer to blend together the eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla, lemon extract and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and blend until smooth. Add oil and mix well. Pour batter into a well greased 9x5-inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a toothpick stuck into t=center of the cake comes out clean.

Make the lemon icing by combining all the icing ingredients in a small bowl mixing well. When the loaf is cool, remove it from the pan and frost the top with the icing. Let the icing set up before slicing.
