Lite Lemon Glazed Loaf Cake Recipe (Weight Watchers Friendly)


Lite Lemon Glazed Loaf Cake Recipe. I’ve been baking up this Lite Lemon Glazed Loaf Cake, and it’s honestly a game-changer.

I use fresh lemons, because let’s face it, they bring the zest to the party. Along with that, a touch of sugar, and a few eggs to bind the goodness together.

In my opinion, the glaze is the best part! It’s only a little lemon juice and sugar, yet it transforms the loaf into a glistening centerpiece.

It’s the kind of dessert cake that’s perfect for sharing with friends or just for a moment of sweet peace on a busy day. Every slice packs a lemony punch that wakes up the taste buds.

Ingredients
 

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F; spray a loaf pans with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, sift together ¾ cup of sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add egg substitute, oil, egg yolk, lemon zest, and vanilla to the bowl. Use a whisk to mix until smooth.
  • In a different bowl, use an electric mixer on medium-high speed to beat the egg whites until they are thick.
  • While still mixing, slowly add ¼ cup of sugar. Continue to beat until you see stiff, shiny peaks form.
  • Take a rubber spatula and gently fold about one-third of the beaten egg whites into the flour mixture. Mix well.
  • Fold in the rest of the egg whites.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let the cake cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes, then remove it from the pan onto the rack.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, mix the lemon juice and the remaining 6 tablespoons of sugar. Stir constantly until the sugar is fully dissolved, about 2 minutes.
  • Pour the lemon-sugar mixture over the cake.
  • Allow the cake to cool completely before serving.

Helpful Tips and Tricks

Room Temperature: Have eggs, egg substitute, and other refrigerated items at room temperature before starting.

Zesting: Zest the lemons before juicing them for ease and to ensure you have fresh zest for the cake.

Mixing: Mix dry and wet ingredients gently until just combined to avoid overmixing, which can result in a tough cake.

Glazing: Pour the glaze over the cake while it’s still warm to allow it to soak in, creating a moist and flavorful dessert.

Storing: Store any leftover cake under a cake dome or wrapped at room temperature, or freeze it without the glaze for later enjoyment.
