I literally had to keep myself from cutting off a slice if this bad boy till the AM. Why because the lighting in my place is awful and I wanted to give it the lighting it deserved. Its Tart and Tangy just the way a Lemon Loaf should be! Plus moist and the Icing well its to DIE for. Or at least that is what my taste buds are saying. You be the judge...
1 3/4 cups flour
1 package Vanilla Jello
1/2 teaspoon baking soda, baking powder, and Salt
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons Butter Softened
1 Tablespoon Lemon Extract
1/2 cup lemon Juice
Zest from 3 lemons
1/2 cup Veg Oil
1 Loaf Pan well greased.
Preheat Oven to 400 Degrees F

Mix together the Dry and Wet ingredients. Add oil and Mix well.
Pour mixture into Loaf Pan and place on middle rack in oven for 10 minutes.

Tarty Lemon Icing
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 Tablesp0ons of Whole Milk
3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
Mix all together and pour over Loaf. Note I did this by sight so be careful with Milk and Lemon Juice if you make the icing to watery its harder to get it stiff by adding powdered sugar so go SLOW!!!
