raspberry lemon loaf recipe


For the Loaf
* 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
* 1 cup sugar
* 2 eggs
* 2 tablespoons lemon zest
* 1 tablespoon lemon juice
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 1/2 cups flour
* 1 cup fresh raspberries

Optional Glaze
* 1/2 cup icing sugar 
* 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice


For the Loaf
1. Preheat the oven to 325 F and grease and line a small loaf pan with parchment paper (mine was 4 x 8.5″). Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, around 1-2 minutes. 
2. Add the eggs one at a time, waiting until the first egg is fully mixed into the batter before adding the second. Then add the lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla, and Greek yogurt and mix until combined. 
3. Add in the flour and baking powder and stir together until just incorporated, the batter will be very thick. Fold the raspberries into the batter. Transfer the batter into the prepared loaf pan, smooth to even with the back of a rubber spatula, and bake for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

For the Glaze
1.  Whisk together icing sugar and lemon juice and drizzle on the cooled loaf. Key word, cooled. Unlike me who can never wait 😂
