Glazed Lemon Loaves (from a cake mix)

Yum oh yum!!!! 

Just the right amount of tang with a sweet lemony glaze.  If you like lemon flavor, you're going to love this easy loaf. 

I get repeated requests from folks who buy this from me at 
Farmer's Market.  

And because it starts with a cake mix, it's simple to whip up.
It freezes nicely too.  (Yes, even with the glaze on it) 

Only 4 simple ingredients (plus water!) - get busy in the kitchen!  

(hover over photo to pin) 


1 (16 ozs.) box lemon cake mix 
1 box(4-serving size) instant lemon pudding 
1/2 c. vegetable oil or melted coconut oil
1 c. cold water
4 eggs 

1-1/2 c. powdered sugar
2-3 Tb. lemon juice (fresh is best)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 
(add 1 - 2 tsp. lemon zest for extra 'zing' if desired)

Preheat oven to 350*.  Grease and flour 2-8" loaf pans; set aside.  

In large bowl, combine all ingredients - beat with hand mixer for about 4 minutes. 

Divide batter evenly into prepared pans; bake about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out fairly clean..(
a few moist crumbs is fine). 

 While loaves are baking, in small bowl, combine glaze ingredients. 

Place baked loaves on wire rack to cool; poke holes all over tops with toothpick or meat fork. Drizzle glaze all over after loaves have cooled at least 10 minutes. let stand at least 10 minutes more; remove from pans to cool completely. 

If freezing, wrap completely cooled loaves with plastic wrap; place inside sealed container or ziploc freezer bags.
