Todays lovely lemon loaf really couldn’t be more simple.

It so simple that Miss G. and I managed to stir the batter together and have this heavenly loaf baking away in the oven in less than 10 minutes.

And the results though couldn’t be more sublime.

This gorgeously golden loaf is not only heady in lovely lemony scent but is chock full of wholesome, totally good for you ingredients; yoghurt, macadamia nut oil, agave syrup and wholemeal flour.

Along with a little fruit, this loaf makes the perfect baby led weaning morning or afternoon tea snack and is also the perfect addition to any lunch box.

  1. Hi. I love your site. It’s awesome and I love how simple they are accomodating for mums with only one hand… ie other one is tightly holding onto babies.
    For this recipe can we substitute something else for the agave likr maple syrup or sugar? And how much do you think?

    Again. Thanks you are a life saver.

  2. Hi and thanks for sharing this recipe! Although I have older children I love all your recipes and so do they! I made this today switching in rice syrup for the agave and I added raspberries. It worked out really well. Look forward to more great ideas. X

  3. Hello! I LOVEyour site and so does my daughter :) I am curious what/if you have a gluten free substitution for the flour?

    • Hi! Yay! I am so happy to hear you and your daughter are enjoying my site! Although I don’t bake gluten free I feel pretty confident saying that most of my recipes would work simply by substituting the plain wheat flour with a gluten free version ( there are so many these days – I was amazed walking up and down the aisle at our local health food shop over the weekend). I am sorry I can’t give you more information, I really should attempt a few gluten free versions to better my knowledge! Good luck and happy baking x
