  • zest of 1 lemon

  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract

  • 2 cups of almond flour ( this is the almond flour I use)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine sweetener, butter, cream cheese. and eggs. Cream together. Add vanilla, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and baking powder mix until combined. Then add almond flour. Grease a loaf pan. I use this coconut oil spray. Add batter to pan and bake for 35 min and test. The side will slightly pull away for the pan when done.

Once cooled mix together ingredients for glaze and drizzle over the top of your cake.

It’s such a delicious moist lemon cake!
