Lemon Loaf Cake

I've been planning to try a lemon loaf cake for a long time, now I'm sorry I didn't do it sooner. Such a simple recipe, the ingredients are at hand and the cake turns out absolutely wonderful. It has the aroma and taste of lemon, the porous and silky structure, slightly moist - one of the most successful combinations I have ever tasted.

Be sure to try it, it's a grade 20 cake, a big plus is that there are only 3 tablespoons of oil in the composition, so it's not greasy at all.

Optionally you can make the icing from lemon juice and powdered sugar (I'll explain in the last step) - I only decorated it with powdered sugar.
