Recipe | Starbucks Lemon Loaf

I saw this ‘top secret’ Starbucks Lemon Loaf recipe circulating Facebook a few weeks ago and just had to give it a go myself. I’m not sure whether it actually is the Starbucks Lemon Loaf recipe but it looked so simple and I had all the ingredients in the cupboard. As I mentioned in my Banana Muffins recipe post last week I didn’t own a loaf tin, I borrowed one to make this loaf but I’ve since invested in one and I’m already planning many more loaf recipes. Please suggest any recipes you’d like me to try/make in the comments as I always like a challenge.
