Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • zest of 2 lemons (about 2 Tablespoons)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 Tablespoons poppyseeds

for the lemon glaze (optional)

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoons milk or cream
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 1 lb loaf pan with parchment paper or grease well. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the granulated sugar and lemon zest. Use your fingers to rub the sugar and the lemon zest together. This will help the zest to release and infuse the sugar with lemon flavor.
  3. Add the vegetable oil to the sugar and mix well. Add the vanilla extract and the eggs in, one at a time, mixing well between each addition.
  4. Add the sour cream, milk and lemon juice. Mix to combine.
  5. Add the all purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix until the batter is smooth and no lumps remain. Do not over mix.
  6. Last, fold in the poppyseeds until evenly distributed. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake at 350°F for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean.
  7. If desired, make the lemon glaze while the bread cools. Combine all the ingredients for the lemon icing in a bowl and whisk together. If the glaze seems too thick, add in an additional teaspoon of milk until it reaches a drip-able consistency.
  8. Once the bread is cool, remove from the pan and pour the glaze over the bread, allowing it to drip down the sides. Sprinkle with poppyseeds if desired. Let the glaze sit for a few minutes to se before slicing and enjoying!
