Lightened Up Lemon Loaf


1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
zest of two large lemons
juice of two large lemons
2/3 cups ricotta (part skim)
¼ cup milk (2%)


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 

Next put all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and using a hand mixer or stand mixer blend the ingredients until well blended. 

Pour the batter into a well greased loaf pan and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

You can eat the loaf as is or you can mix a quarter of a cup of confectioners sugar with a teaspoon of lemon juice to make a lemon icing. If the icing is too dry you can add a drop of milk to loosen it up, inversely, if the icing is too wet just add a little bit more of confectioners sugar.
