Lemon Loaf Cake

Serves 8-10 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 40 minutes   Rated:


We do love all things lemon on this site. I have struggled with getting a lemon tree to produce for a few years now and it makes me sad EVERY winter when I buy really average lemons from supermarkets. I also hate seeing them laying on the ground in my neighbourhood and have been known to be a lemon picker upperer as I casually walk past. The struggle is real.

SO, when someone gifted me a basket full of beautiful Meyer lemons (those are the ones with the unbelievably soft skin, and the juice is quite sweet) I decided this was on the menu. Perfect for morning tea, pretty enough for afternoon tea or get the ice cream out and have it for dessert.

Preheat oven to 170°C and butter and flour a loaf tin very well. Set aside.


Place eggs and sugar into the Thermomix bowl and whip 4 min/37°C/Butterfly/speed 3.


Add the finely grated lemon zest and juice, EVOO, yoghurt and lemon oil. Whip 1 min/Butterfly/speed 3. Remove the Butterfly.


Add the flour and fold in using a spatula until just combined. Pour into prepared tin and bake 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool in the tin for at least 10 minutes then transfer cake to a wire rack to finish cooling completely before glazing.


To make the glaze, place the butter and icing sugar into a small bowl and blend by hand, adding the lemon juice slowly to loosen up the mixture until is is a good pouring consistency.


Drizzle over the cake, garnish with edible flowers and or thinly sliced lemon slices.
