Lemon Bread!

If you like Starbucks Lemon Loaf then you will love this moist, delicious Lemon Bread! It’s so easy to make, filled with the perfect amount of lemon flavor, and topped with a perfectly sweet lemon glaze!


  • 1½ C. all purpose flour
  • 1 (3.4 oz.) instant lemon pudding mix
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 C. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. lemon extract
  • ⅓ C. fresh lemon juice
  • ½ C. oil
  • ½ C. plain greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon zest

Lemon glaze:

  • 3 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1½ C. powdered sugar
  • 1½ Tbsp. lemon juice
  • ½ tsp. lemon extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350℉. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, pudding mix, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer add eggs, sugar, butter, extracts, lemon juice, oil, and greek yogurt or sour cream. Mix on medium speed until smooth.
  3. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet, making sure to scrape the sides of the bowl. Add in lemon zest and mix until just combined.
  4. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool on a cooling rack completely before adding glaze.
  5. For glaze: In a stand mixer or with a hand mixer, combine butter and powdered sugar until creamy, then add in the lemon juice and lemon extract. Beat until the mixture is smooth. Spread on top of the loaf.
  6. Store lemon bread in an air tight container for 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months. I suggest freezing it in slices so you can just grab a couple out at a time!
