Glazed Lemon Loaf (GF)
This is a lovely loaf with a tender crumb texture and a tangy sweet-tart glaze. I hurriedly made this loaf today knowing my hubby was hungry and wanted to start the barbecue. I'd just cut his hair and he had showered and was sitting in front of his computer and I figured if I was quick, I'd get this loaf into the oven before he noticed - and sure enough, I just made it!
2 cups Gluten-Free Bake Mix, (500 mL)
1 tbsp baking powder (15 mL)
1/4 tsp baking soda (1 mL)
1/8 tsp salt (0.5 mL)
2 tbsp finely grated lemon rind (25 mL)
Liquid sucralose to equal 11/4 cups (300 mL)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (125 mL)
2 tbsp granulated erythritol (30 mL)
2 tbsp olive oil (30 mL)
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice (30 mL)
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice (45 mL)
1 tbsp water (15 mL)
3 tbsp SPLENDA® Granular (45 mL)
1/8 tsp xanthan gum (0.5 mL)

In food processor, process eggs, liquid sucralose, OR SPLENDA® Granular, melted butter, granulated erythritol, olive oil and lemon juice. Add dry ingredients and process until thickened about 1 minute. Scrape batter into 8 x 4 x 3-inch (1.5 L) well-greased, nonstick loaf pan (if pan is old, line with wax paper, parchment paper or foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray).
