Some helpful Lemon loaf tips

  • DO NOT forget to grease your pan. Even though this loaf has olive oil in it, it can stick. So butter or oil your pans!
  • You can use any other vegetable oil in the batter; it tastes delicious with olive oil, but feel free to use another.
  • Remember that when zesting the lemons, you only want the yellow part of the peel. The white part is sour, and that is NO BUENO.
  • Do not over mix. This loaf is vegan, so the leavening agents are baking soda and baking powder, which makes a reaction with the lemon juice. It can get bubbly, no worries, it is normal. But please, do not over mix the batter trying for them to go away.
  • If you do have a big sweet tooth omit the lemon glace.
