Cloud 9 Lemon Yogurt Loaf

Lemon Yogurt Loaf

This definitely has a lemon zing to it and make sure that “somebody” doesn’t over “taste test” the glaze …

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • 1 2/3 Cups Cloud 9 all-purpose Baking Mix
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup Greek-Style Yogurt – at least 5% fat
  • 2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 6 Tbsp Fine Grated Lemon Zest – I got my helper to do this for me

For the Glaze:

  • 3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Butter, Melted

Measure your flour by gently spooning it into a cup and sweep off any excess.
Do not use the measuring cup to scoop from the bag as it may compact the flour resulting in more flour than required.

Thicker Glaze: If you like a thicker glaze, add in extra powdered sugar a tsp at a time
