Sour Cream Lemon Loaf

Sour Cream Lemon Loaf


  • 220 grams all purpose flour

  • 230 grams full fat sour cream

  • 200 grams granulated sugar

  • 120 ml vegetable oil

  • 60 ml fresh squeezed lemon juice

  • 12 grams baking soda

  • 6 grams vanilla extract

  • 3 grams salt

  • 2 large whole eggs

  • zest of 1 lemon


Preheat oven to 350 deg F

Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with non stick spray or cover in parchment paper

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt

In another mixing bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, sour cream, lemon juice, lemon zest, eggs and vanilla. Mix well!

Combine the dry and wet ingredients until fully mixed

Pour the batter into the pan and spread it around to become as even as possible! Bake for approximately 50-53 min or until a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean (you can also tent foil over the pan the last 10 min or so if you don’t want so much browning on top of your loaf!)

Remove from oven and let it cool for about 20 minutes in the loaf pan. Carefully remove from the loaf pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool for another 10-20 min. Best to cut when completely cool however no one is going to stop you if you just can’t wait to taste! Enjoy!


Place loaf in an airtight container or plastic bag at room temperature or in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Can this loaf be frozen?

YES! It can be frozen up to 2 months as long as you package it in the appropriate freezer container. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before serving
