Lemon Bread ‣ 2 cups all-purpose flour ‣ 1 teaspoon baking powder ‣ 1/4 teaspoon baking soda ‣ 1/2 teaspoon salt ‣ 1 cup granulated sugar ‣ 1/2 cup olive oil ‣ 1/4 cup milk ‣ 2 eggs ‣ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ‣ 1 teaspoon lemon extract ‣ 2 tablespoons lemon zest Lemon Glaze ‣ 1 cup powdered sugar ‣ 1/4 cup lemon juice ‣ 1 tablespoon lemon zest, plus more for garnish (optional)
In a large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set this bowl aside for now.
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl), whip together the sugar, olive oil, milk, eggs, vanilla extract, and lemon extract until smooth.
Add the dry ingredients to the bowl, then mix well. Add the lemon zest, then use a spatula to fold it into the batter.
Spray a 9×5 bread loaf pan with baking spray, then pour the bread batter in. Use a spatula to smooth out the top into a single layer. Once done, send it off to bake!
While the baked bread cools, prepare the lemon glaze by adding powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest to a small bowl, then whisk them all together.
Drizzle the lemon glaze over the baked bread as you see fit.
