Ingredients
Lemon Loaf Cake
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Passion Fruit Glaze
  • 2-3 passion fruit, pulp and seeds only
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray or line with a parchment paper sling.

  2. Whisk together the eggs, sugar, sour cream, oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla in a large bowl.  

  3. Whisk the the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl, then add to the liquids and stir just until combined.  The batter will be a bit lumpy.  Pour into the prepared loaf pan, then bake for 50-55 minutes until a tester inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean with just a few crumbs.  Cool completely.

  4. While the loaf cools, make the glaze by combining the seeds from 3 passion fruit with the powdered sugar and stirring until smooth.  The seeds will release their juices to make the glaze.  Pour oven the lemon loaf cake and let set for 15 minutes before slicing.

Recipe Notes

You can strain out the seeds from the passion fruit if you want, but they are completely edible and I think they add an interesting textural component to this passion fruit lemon loaf cake.
