low carb lemon loaves

Recipe by

Sauk Village, IL

I made these lemon loaves to share with my neighbor as well as keep one for my household. I wanted to keep the carb count low so I used CARB QUICK BAKING MIX & added in some almond flour. I used 2 loaf pans size 9 X 5 inch to maximize the amount of servings. You can easily get 32 servings from this recipe using the two 9 X 5 loaf pans. The Lor Ann Lemon Emulsion is what gives this sweet sensation its lemon flavor. Hope you will give it a try. You can also add in lemon zest. This recipe was recreated from another recipe I already have posted using Bisquick. The NET CARBS IN THIS RECIPE IS 0

    Serve plain or frost with a sugar free frosting, or dust lightly with powdered sugar. Since I am counting carbs, I chose to serve it plain.

    This is what the Lorann Lemon Emulsion looks like. It is a non alcoholic professional bakers flavor enhancer, that does not evaporate during baking. It adds lots of flavor, but is a bit expensive but worth every penny. I ordered mine from Amazon.
