 This Lemon Pound Loaf- O M G. This may be my favorite baked good I’ve made this year and that’s saying something… It’s a pound cake style loaf but still light & soft. It will knock your socks off and if you’re wanting to go a different route instead of delivering Christmas cookies to your neighbors this year, this recipe is IT!

8oz greek yogurt

lemon juice
powdered sugar
