Servings - 8 servings


  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder

Lemon Glaze

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Mix in the eggs, lemon juice, lemon zest, sour cream, and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gently stir these dry ingredients into the other bowl and form into batter. Pour into the greased loaf pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean in the center. Set to cool on cooling rack.
  • GLAZE: While the lemon bread is cooling, mix up the glaze in a small bowl. Add the powdered sugar and fork and stir to combine. Add a touch more powdered sugar or drops of lemon juice to reach desired glaze consistency. Drizzle over the warm bread.
  • Serve Glazed Lemon Bread warm.
