This simple to make almond lemon bread is something we almost always have on hand, whether it is freshly made or something I can take out of the freezer. It can be eaten as is, popped in the toaster or grilled in a frying pan. The almond glaze on top adds even more lemon flavor and then it is topped with almond slivers.

How to Make Almond Lemon Bread

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with non stick spray. You can also line the pan with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the lemon zest and the sugar into the flour mixture.

Almond Lemon Bread Recipe batter

In a separate bowl, mix together the sour cream, oil, eggs, lemon juice, and almond extract. Mix this into the flour mixture, stirring only until it is combined.

bread batter in the loaf pan

Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for 55-65 minutes.

Let the bread cool for 10 minutes and then remove it from the pan. Let it cool completely once removed.

Once the bread has cooled, make the glaze.

Almond Lemon Bread glaze

In a small bowl, combine the sugar, lemon juice, and almond extract. If the glaze seems too thick, you can add more lemon juice.

Spoon the glaze over the bread and add the almond slices.

Store covered at room temperature.

Does This Lemon Bread Need a Glaze?

While this bread is delicious enough to leave off the glaze, I feel like the glaze takes this almond lemon bread to a whole new level. I always include it but you can certainly leave it off. The glaze also helps the sliced almonds stick better.

How Long Is Lemon Loaf Good In the Freezer?

You can freeze the lemon loaf bread for up to 3 months. Make sure that the bread is covered well with plastic wrap and inside a freezer bag. I like to slice the bread into individual sizes and then wrap each one separately. This lets me take a slice or two out instead of the whole loaf.
