  • loaf pan


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan and set aside.
  • Bread– To a large bowl, add the eggs, sugar, yogurt, and whisk vigorously until smooth and combined.
  • Drizzle in the vegetable oil while whisking to combine.
  • Add the lemon zest, lemon extract, and whisk to combine. Note – Please do not substitute lemon juice or lemon oil on this step…you will want to use lemon extract for full flavor.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and stir until just combined, don’t overmix. The batter will be lumpy and that is totally fine…you do not want to mix until smooth.
  • Pour the batter out into the prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula. Bake for about 50 to 52 minutes, or until the top is domed, set, and a toothpick inserted in the center crack comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs but no batter. If the loaf appears to brown faster than finished baking, then cover the top loosely with foil until baking is complete.
  • Allow loaf to cool in pan on top of a wire rack for at least 30 minutes before removing onto the rack to cool completely before glazing.
  • Lemon Glaze – In a small bowl, add the confectioner’s sugar and slowly drizzle in the lemon juice while whisking until smooth and combined.
  • Evenly drizzle glaze over bread before slicing and serving.
  • The bread may be kept in an airtight container and stored at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
