  • Whisk flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl. Cream sugar and butter in a separate bowl with an electric mixer. Add eggs, lemon juice, lemon zest, lemon extract, and vanilla; beat until incorporated.

  • Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture; whisk until smooth. Add oil and mix well. Pour into the prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

  • While the cake is cooling, mix powdered sugar, milk, lemon zest, and lemon extract in a bowl until smooth. Pour over the cooled loaf. Slice up the loaf when the icing sets.

Cook's Note:

Coconut oil may be substituted for vegetable oil, if desired.
