Lemon Loaf | Gluten Free

Hello everyone! One of my favourite treats growing up was a lemon loaf, so naturally I have found a way to make it so I can eat it again!

Ingredients:

1.5 cups of self raising flour (I used the free from brand from England)
1/2 cup cane sugar (or any kind of sugar you have in your cupboard)
2 flax eggs (2tbs flax seed ground up and 6 tbs water)
75 ml neutral tasting oil – I used sunflower oil
Zest and juice of 2 lemons
Icing Sugar:
6-8 tbs cane sugar (depends how sweet you want it)
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
6-8 tbs coconut oil (depend how much icing you want)

Directions:

  1. Put all the dry ingredients together, mix the flour and sugar together.
  2. Make your flax eggs and set them aside until they gel together.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix in the oil and the zest and juice of the lemons. Once the flax eggs are ready mix them in with the wet ingredients as well.
  4. Now mix the dry with the wet until it makes a batter consistency. Then place in a loaf baking pan with parchment paper lining the tin.
  5. Put in the oven at 350 degrees F for 30-35 min or until golden brown.
  6. While the loaf bakes, make your icing. Melt the coconut oil and mix in the lemon juice and sugar. Now place it in the fridge until it hardens.
  7. Once the loaf is baked, let it cool before you place the icing on top. Enjoy!
