We have finally made it to Spring! Today marks the first day of spring and the temperatures are gradually warming up.

A great cake to celebrate any occasion, whether be Spring, Easter or Mother’s day! Everything about this cake is amazing – it’s soft, moist, dense and oh so delicious! If you have tried my ORANGE CAKE recipe than I am sure you are going to love this one too!
Now on to the recipe!
Glazed lemon loaf cake is an easy-to-make recipe that is bursting with fresh lemon flavor and is finished off with a luscious lemon drizzle. This cake has a perfect balance between creamy and tart and has just the right amount of lemon flavor! The ingredient that adds creaminess to this cake is Cream cheese. Few tips that I would like to share regarding this cake-
- Creaming butter and sugar is an essential step. Cream until the mixture is light and fluffy.
- To avoid the eggy smell in your cake – add eggs one at time. Beat on LOW setting, until it blends in the batter then add the other one.
- Add flour mixture and milk alternately to the batter, mixing well in between.
- Batter should be of a dropping consistency.
- Bake the cake for desired time and allow it to cool for 15-20 minutes before inverting it onto a wire rack.
You can enjoy the cake as is (without a glaze). Pair it with a dollop of your favorite ice cream and fresh fruits and enjoy. Or just have it with a cup of tea or coffee – A perfect tea time treat!Other option!
You can top the cake with irresistible lemon glaze made of lemon juice and powdered sugar. Simply boil it down until thick and pour it over the warm cake. I highly recommend the lemon glaze, as it takes the cake to a whole new level – a real showstopper at your next party.
Store in in the fridge and is good for a week. Do give this bright and fresh cake a try and if you happen to make this, then either drop me a line below or share your yum pictures with me on Facebook. Would love to see your creation!
