When it comes to lemon loaf, it should be moist, and you should taste the fresh lemon flavour. This loaf is deliciously flavoured with plenty of fresh lemon juice and finished with grilled lemon slices. The lemon topping infuses the loaf with stunning grilled lemon taste.

This award winning gluten free vegan lemon loaf recipe should be included in everyone’s recipe box. I have added lemon icing recipe if you so desire. Enjoy this vitamin C packed lemon loaf for breakfast, snack or a dessert.
