Glazed lemon loaf

April 14, 2019

It was a loaf baking kind of day over here, I love lemon anything and I was eyeing a few lemons sitting on my counter… and well here is the result of that, a delicious glazed lemon loaf! It is simple to make and full of flavor with just enough sweetness to finish it off. You could leave off the glaze to save a point per slice but I love the bit of sweet you get biting into each slice. Serves 10 at 4 smart points each

4 freestyle SP, 5SP/3PP per serving
Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup plain non fat greek yogurt
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest (I use fresh from the lemon)
  • 1.5 Tbsp lemon extract
  • 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • FOR THE GLAZE
  • 3 Tbsp icing sugar (confectionary sugar)
  • 1.5 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a regular size loaf pan with some cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk the eggs and sugar together. Sti in the yogurt, apple sauce, lemon juice, lemon extract and lemon zest.
  3. Mix in the flour and baking powder, pour batter into your loaf pan and bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes or until loaf is baked right through.
  4. Let cool then remove carefully from the pan. In a small bowl mix your icing sugar and lemon juice together to make the glaze, pour over the loaf. Cut into 10 equal servings. *Note- this loaf is a bit denser of a loaf due to ingredients used, it will drop a little after cooling.
  5. The loaf is best stored in the fridge after day one and will freeze well.
