I recently started playing around with different types of loafs, and I have had a few bland results and a few winners. This is a definite winner! I used a coconut glaze but a lemon glaze would also be amazing, just make sure you let the loaf cool down before adding the glaze.
Using lemon extract will give you the most lemony flavor as opposed to lemon oil or real lemon, which is just not strong enough for that full-bodied lemon flavor. I'm not a huge fan of baking, but this loaf is super easy and you can do it all in one bowl. And that right there is a seller!
If you happen to be in a loaf-making mood, here is another recipe that will knock your socks off!
