Eat the Cupboard: Lightly Lemon Loaf

Hi everyone, I'm back with another recipe! I took a break last week because I was too busy with Mother's Day events and birthdays on the go, and I intended to be present at the moment. After all, the early summer weather was so beautiful. So why not soak up all those memories?

I also wanted to wait to post this so I could present this on the beautiful cutting board my sister-in-common-law made for my birthday.

Here is another May- flour recipe for the books!

Lightly Lemon Loaf

Time: 55 minutes Makes: 10 servings Cost per serving: $0.77*


One lemon squeezed

Two cups of all-purpose flour

Two eggs, room temperature

One teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of Himalayan salt

Two cups of melted Breyers vanilla ice cream

Two tablespoons of maple syrup


Two tablespoons of butter

One teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1/2 cup of rolled oats

Pinch of Himalayan salt

Two tablespoons of coconut sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. Line a bread loaf pan with parchment paper.

  3. In the ice cream tub: blend the eggs and maple syrup with a whisk.

  4. In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder.

  5. Slowly add the flour mixture to the ice cream tub whisking well.

  6. Pour the mixture into the lined loaf pan and spread evenly.

  7. In a pan, melt butter on medium to low heat.

  8. Add the rolled oats to the pan and evenly coat. Then sprinkle on the cinnamon and Himalayan salt. Cook until lightly toasted, then remove from heat and evenly coat the top of the loaf with the oat mixture.

  9. Place the loaf in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes.

  10. Once fully baked, remove from the oven and allow the loaf to cool before serving.

  11. Slice and serve. Perfect for an afternoon tea or coffee break!

Preserve the loaf in an airtight container and refrigerate it to preserve it for longer. Trust me, this humidity in BC will make it mold in less than a week!

Heads up, this loaf is a bit on the dense side with the heavy cream and lack of leavening agents. A suggestion to fluff it up a bit would be to use an electric beater to bring some air into the batter and add a combination of baking powder and soda to help the rise.

From the cupboard: Flour, baking powder, Himalayan salt, rolled oats, cinnamon, and coconut sugar

From the fridge: Eggs, butter, maple syrup, and ice cream (melted previously in the fridge)

From the store: lemon

Have you ever played around with unconventional ingredients for recipes? Did you have to make any substitutes or alterations if you were missing something?

I'm interested to hear about your accidental creations!
