A sweet bread with a soft crumb drizzled in a thick, lemony-sweet glaze. Perfect for breakfast, brunch or just a sweet snack. This citrus confection is free of: gluten, dairy, egg, soy, peanut & tree nuts; top-8-free; and vegan too!
  • BREAD:
  • 1 and ½ cups gluten-free flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 flax eggs (3 Tablespoons ground flax seed mixed with 7 and ½ Tablespoons of warm water)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • ⅓ cup lemon juice
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • zest of one large lemon
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tablespoons rice milk
  • ½ teaspoon lemon extract
  1. For the cake:
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan well and set it aside.
  3. Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, xanthan, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
  4. In a blender, pulse together the flax eggs, coconut oil, vanilla extract, lemon extract, lemon juice, lemon zest, and canola oil until blended. The reason I do this is to make the ground flax seed as incorporated and small as possible. If you decide to not use a blender, the flax seeds will be more noticeable in the finished product.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and blend until smooth.
  6. Pour into the greased loaf pan and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick entered in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
  7. For Glaze
  8. While the bread is cooling, add one Tablespoon of rice milk at a time to the rest of the glaze ingredients until you have the consistency you want. Once the bread is fully cooled, pour or drizzle over the loaf.
