I kid you not. This loaf has become my latest obsession. I'm writing this down and thinking...boy do I need to make this real soon.

Not only are the ingredients waaaay better than any artificial lemon loaf out there BUT the texture and flavors of this loaf are beyond DELICIOUS.

I used yogurt to make this. I think it really is the key ingredient in this recipe. You can opt to add some lemon zest if you're into that too! I use coconut sugar to give it a healthier vibe but go ahead and use regular sugar for this. I wouldn't suggest brown sugar because the color will be much darker.

Btw, I suggest you add the lemon glaze on top of this;) Sorry no recipe for that but I just mixed some powdered sugar, lemon juice and milk! Super easy.
