Lemon Loaf with Lemon Drizzle

Lemon Loaf with Lemon DrizzleLemon. Lemon. Lemon.

I have been obsessed with all things lemon lately. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I tend to share a lot of my lemon creations before I even make it to the website. I was waiting for that perfect opportunity to share this lemon cake. I wanted to get the picnic posts out-of-the-way because July is National Picnic Month. Now, I get to share this lemon cake and I am soooooooo excited. 

This idea came to me on a whim. I had made the lime poke cake and I wasn’t sure how the lemon was going to work out for me. It was getting late and I didn’t really want to take the time to make a poke cake. It was also getting close to time for kiddo to leave for the weekend and I didn’t want an entire cake lingering around for me and mryum to pick at during the week.

I decided to use my trusty standby as the base for this cake. I am a huge fan of Jiffy mixes. They are one of very few prepackaged boxed items I still use. Jiffy reminds me so much of my mother, my grandmother and there is even a faint memory of my great-grandmother. It is also one of few companies that haven’t really changed much over the year. What I like about the little Jiffy cake mixes is that they make a small cake or in this case, we used a bread pan. It is just enough for us.

The topping is a powdered sugar glaze that I created on my own. I got the idea from the old method of using powdered sugar and milk. We turned a simple yellow cake mix into a delectable delight. I am so happy with it!

    1. I have always enjoyed lemon poppyseed muffins and never really bothered with lemon baked cooks. But lately I seem to actually crave it. So I am experimenting and having fun with it.
