Took a lot longer to cook than 45 minutes, probably more like an hour and I had to cover it with foil for the last 20 minutes or so because the top was getting so brown. I added the zest of one lemon to increase lemon flavor in cake after reading reviews that it was "lemony" enough. Tasted close to original!

This recipe taste 10 times better than Starbucks.

I was just at Starbucks. And, compared my lemon loaf to theirs. There's had no taste. Todd's is 10 x better. It looks like same but has a much better taste.

I just made this today and let me tell you it is fabulous. The best lemon loaf I have made. It is perfect. Texture, taste and looks. Quite surprised. Anyone who gives this a bad review obviously did something wrong for sure. I have all of Todd's books including the new one from QVC, the old one from QVC and one from the Canadian Shopping Channel. A genius. I have made several recipes and they were fantastic and in addition I have made them many times. Thanks so much.

Sorry but this wasn't very good at all. I've never had Starbucks' lemon loaf but this was dry with a strange grainy texture and didn't taste very lemon-y to me. I have another lemon loaf recipe that I think I'll go back to. Also - there was a whole lot of icing that was very, very sweet and not lemon-y at all.

Really love it! Hubby has milk allergy, and used additional oil instead of butter - and no icing. Chopped pecans add to it, also. I'm cooking it every other night!

Awesome recipe!!! Just add a little lemon zest and it tastes evan better. I use an 8 mini loaf pan. I can never seem to have enough because they are awesome....

These taste just like the one at Starbucks. Now I didn't have to buy a slice for like $3.50.

It looked good, but was too dry and not lemony enough for me.

This cake has a great taste but two out of the three time I've made it, the center fell. I mean really fell! Can't figure what was different , but will try one more time. Thanks!
