Lemon Almond Bread

Lemon Almond Bread

I made this lemon almond bread as soon as I saw the recipe on Two Peas & Their Pod because it sounded interesting, delicious and I had all the ingredients on hand. We’ve had a few rainy days in a row which always makes me want to bake so my daughter and I made this bread together. I’ve was curious how the lemon and almond flavor combination would turn out and I ended up really loving it. My kids both thought this lemon almond bread was moist, flavorful, and super delicious and so did my husband.

How to Make Lemon Almond Bread

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray.

Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium-sized bowl; set aside.

In another small bowl, mix the sugar with the lemon zest. Rub the mixture together with your fingers until fragrant and well combined. Add the lemon sugar to the flour mixture and mix well.

In another large bowl, whisk together the almond milk, oil, eggs, lemon juice, almond extract, and vanilla extract until well combined.

Gradually add in the flour mixture to the liquid mixture and stir until combined. Pour into the prepared baking pan.

Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean Remove from the oven and cool for 15 minutes on a rack before removing from the loaf pan. Allow the loaf to cool completely on the wire rack.

Prepare the glaze by whisking the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and almond extract together until smooth and creamy.

Once the bread has cooled, drizzle the glaze over the lemon almond bread then sprinkle the top with sliced almonds. Cut and serve. Enjoy.
