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

      I do.. just search “Drizzlemeskinny” on FB and you will find me, or there is a link on the side bar on my home page on my blog πŸ™‚

  1. I tried this today and really enjoyed it. Thanks for another good one.

      • I wanted to share that I tried this with a zero point lemon curd in the middle. Yum! Good recipe!

          Thanks for sharing Barb, sounds delicious.. Glad you enjoyed it πŸ™‚

  2. I replaced the sugar with Swerve and the confectioners sugar with Swerve Confectioners sugar and it is 2 points per slice for 8 slices πŸ™‚

    Mine came out a little spongey in the middle. Would you recommend just cooking a little longer next time?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Yeah, you can try a little longer, ovens can vary.. it is a bit denser than the usual store bought loaf but that said it should not be spongy .. None the less I hope you enjoyed it

        It was still very good! It looks like your batter was a bit thicker than mine for some reason. I’ll try it at a higher temp next time. I made this with the truvia baking blend instead of sugar and it came out great. and only 3pts per slice!

        • Drizzle Reply

          I’m glad you enjoyed it.. I wonder if the truvia made a difference in baking? I’m not sure as I have never used it, I doubt it would.. You could add in an extra Tbsp or two of flour if you think thicking up the batter might help

      I always use all-purpose unless otherwise stated πŸ™‚

    This looks delicious!! Would using 1.5c Kodiak mix (instead of flour/baking powder) work? I see a lot of recipes using this mix to lower points but I haven’t tried it yet.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Michelle, yes I think Kodiak mix will work just as well πŸ™‚

  5. Hi there,
    How do you think this would hold up in a lamb cake mold for Easter?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Jackie, it should hold up, it is a bit denser than your typical store-bought loaf due to ingredients used but I think it will be ok

  6. I don’t have applesauce on hand. Would you suggest a replacement or just omitting? TIA

    • Drizzle Reply

      If you omit it, it will likely be too dry, maybe a mashed banana?
