This is one my favorite snacks from Starbucks, and now I can make it at home! A light vanilla and lemon flavored loaf with sweet lemony glaze.

Serve this sweet, spongy cake with a side of tea! I love the lemony taste in both the cake and glaze frosting. Easy to make and fun to serve!

Lemon Glazed Blueberry Scones

Try making these for Mother’s Day, or as a great addition to any brunch. They are so sweet and fruity you’ll be craving them for dessert too.

Giant Lemon Sugar Cookies

Great to bring to a BBQ or summer picnic! These giant cookies have a soft, chewy lemon flavor and a bit of sugar crunch on top. Use floured hands while rolling the dough to reduce sticking. Also try and use fresh lemon juice; it adds so much more flavor!
