Vegan Lemon Loaf Cake (w/Extra Lemon-y Zing) ūüćč

This recipe is AMAZING! Has a great lemon pop and is super moist. It was a HUGE crowd pleaser for our family gathering and wowed my MIL who wanted something light to enjoy for her birthday and Mother's Day.

*Loaf is still yummy without the glaze if you're avoiding excess sugar.
