Starbucks Style Lemon Loaf



The Starbucks lemon loaf is full of lemon flavor, moist and dense. When I first tasted this amazing delicacy from Starbucks, it was like “Love at first bite”. So rich in flavors, nice creamy yellow colour and lovely texture. Then itself I have decided that I have to try this out and my search for Starbucks lemon loaf ended here.



So many different versions were there to make this delicious loaf, but I liked this version as it required all the ingredients which are easily available. This lemon loaf has a nice tangy flavor, which is by adding the lemon juice and the zest of lemon. To increase the lemony goodness, just add a lemon glaze when the cake gets cooled.


I have made lemon cup cakes before and now this lemon loaf. Just try this out and I am sure that you will finish it off within no time… :)
