Lemon Cake:

1/2 cup butter, room temperature

1 cup sugar

3 eggs

zest of 3 lemons

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Lemon Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons lemon juice


Preheat your oven to 320 degrees F

In a bowl with an electric mixer cream together your butter and sugar until smooth

To the bowl add in the eggs and mix until combined

Add in the lemon zest, vanilla extract, Greek yogurt, and lemon juice and mix until combined completely

To the wet ingredients add in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until combined

Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan and put in to the preheated oven

Let it bake 55-60 minutes, until cooked through

Once cooked take it out of the pan and let it cool on a rack slightly

Once the cake has cooled make the glaze by mixing together the powdered sugar and lemon juice. You want to add the liquid a little at a time. If it appears too runny add more powdered sugar and if it appears too thick add a little more lemon juice

Add the glaze to the top of the loaf, garnish with thin lemon slices, and lemon zest

Cut, serve, and devour
