quick lemon loaf

Yummy note: I came across this recipe the other day while I was in the local library. We were looking for some kid-friendly easy recipes when we saw this one in a cookbook called Fix-It and Enjoy-It! 5-Ingredient Recipes.  It looked simple enough, and not too many crazy ingredients, shoot, I think I had them all in my cabinet already! yes... So following this one by the book, we made this delicious lemon loaf, with an additional touch, FROSTING! We love our frosting in this house, so I added a simple powdered sugar frosting for the top. 

Quick Lemon Loaf 

For the Lemon Loaf:
4 eggs
1 box of white/yellow cake mix
1 small box if instant lemon pudding
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup lukewarm water

For the Frosting:
2 cups powdered sugar
1-3 tbsp water
1 lemon for juice and zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour cake mix, water, pudding, oil, and eggs in a large bowl and mix together well. We just did it with a whisk for about a minute or so until it was all combined well. Next, pour the batter into two lightly greased loaf pans and bake for about 40 minutes or until the center of the loaf tests clean.

For the frosting, mix 2 cups of powdered sugar and half of a lemon juiced. Next, start adding in some of the water, just enough so that the frosting starts coming together. Add in enough water to your likeness of the how thick or thin you would like the frosting to be. We like more of a thicker frosting, while you could add more water and make it into more of a icing/glaze instead. Top cooled lemon loaf with your icing and finish with a little lemon zest.
