By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Beat yogurt, sugar, eggs, vanilla and lemon extract until blended
  3. Stir together flour, lemon peel, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to yogurt mixture,mix just until blended. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 9- x 5-inch loaf pan or 3 mini loafs.
  4. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour for 1 large loaf or 30 35 minutes for 3 mini loafs, or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, shielding with aluminum foil after 50 minutes to prevent excessive browning.
  5. To make glaze:
  6. In a small sauce pan add sugar and lemon juice, stir until dissolved and clear. While the cake is still warm, pour the lemon-sugar mixture over the cake and allow it to soak in (a pastry brush works great for this, as does using a toothpick to make tiny holes that draw the syrup in better).
  7. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack. Then eat!!!!

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

Cooking Tips

  • An average lemon yields about one tablespoon of lemon zest. If you're using a bunch of lemons to make lemonade or something, zest them first and freeze the zest for later.

  • If you've had your baking powder for awhile, make sure it's still going to work by mixing it with a little water. If it doesn't fizz, you need to replace it.

  • If you find that you're always missing lemon zest, purchase lemon extract and substitute a 1/2 teaspoon extract for every tablespoon zest.

  • Rumor has it you can freeze whole lemons and grate them while still frozen whenever you want to pump up the lemon flavor in a dish. Next time you have some lemons not getting used, give it a try (and let us know how it goes).

Green Tips

  • Since pesticide residue is most likely to be stored in the skin/rind, it might be advisable to buy organic lemons if you're using them for zest.
