For the cake:

Lemon Simple Syrup:


  • Preheat your oven to 400F. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the almond flour, baking soda, salt, and sweetener. Now add in the eggs, greek yogurt, vanilla extract, lemon juice and zest.
  • Once you batter is smooth pour into the loaf pan and place in oven. Loaf will be done when a toothpick comes out clean. About 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes
  • In a small saucepan, combine the lemon simple syrup ingredients. let cook for a few minutes over medium heat until the sweetener is dissolved. Spoon the simple syrup over the top of the cake.
  • Once your cake is completely cooled, remove it from the loaf pan. Combine all your ingredients for glaze into a small mixing bowl. Once nice and smooth, take your spoon and glaze the top of your cake.
  • Slice into 12 slices and serve.


  • The total amount of lemon juice needed for this recipe is 3/4 cup.  This would be about 6 Lemons.  I used 1 fresh lemon (so I could have the zest) and I supplemented the rest with bottled lemon juice.  
  • Freezing:  This entire loaf can be wrapped in freezer paper and plastic wrap and frozen for up to 3 months.  You can also wrap individual slices and freeze.
