I have a weakness for Starbucks, especially their delectable lemon bread. It’s a dangerously delightful treat that resembles the most heavenly pound cake you can imagine: a harmonious blend of richness, density, moistness, and buttery goodness. What makes it truly exceptional is the dual infusion of lemon essence, both in the cake itself and the delectable sweet frosting.

But here’s the exciting news: you no longer have to venture out to Starbucks to savor this delightful creation. After some delightful experimentation in my own kitchen, I unraveled the secret behind recreating the renowned Starbucks Lemon Loaf.

With a generous amount of tinkering, I discovered that the key lies in the abundant use of lemon extract, creating an explosion of citrusy zest in every single bite. The cake and frosting work in perfect harmony to deliver an irresistible burst of lemony goodness that will leave you craving more.

Recipe Notes:

  • Do not stop beating the butter and other ingredients. This step really takes at least 5 minutes, but it’s important. You want the mixture to be light in color and fluffy.
  • When checking the doneness of the lemon bread, you want some crumbs to stick to the toothpick, but you don’t want the toothpick to have raw dough on it.
  • Allow the lemon bread to cool completely before pouring the icing over the top.
  • If you prefer a thicker or thinner frosting, you can achieve your desired consistency by adding more powdered sugar or more milk.
  • The frosting will run off the cake and pool a bit on the plate. I like to put the icing that falls from the cake on top of the cake. You can also let the frosting sit for about 15 minutes in the bowl to begin to harden before pouring it over the cake. Less will escape this way.
  • If you don’t have lemon extract you can replace it with lemon zest. The flavor will still be good, but it may change the texture of the lemon bread and frosting.
