Copycat Starbucks Lemon Loaf Cake

August 11, 2016

Starbucks is always a treat. Going into Starbucks to get a latte always leads to something more. In my case, that would be a piece of Lemon Loaf Cake. Starbucks Lemon Loaf Cake is super lemony and moist. It really complements a good cup of coffee or tea.

I found this copycat recipe for Starbucks Lemon Cake, made it and I’m sharing it because it is awesome!
