This recipe imparts a lemony flavor in the cake and icing. Serve it solo, with strawberries or with strawberry sorbet.
1 cup sugar
Zest of 1 lemon
¼ cup plus 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons unsalted cannabutter*
2 large eggs
½ cup whole milk
1 teaspoon lemon oil
1½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
Glaze, recipe follows
Using your fingertips, rub together sugar and zest to release the citrus oil. Beat sugar into both butters until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat mixture until creamy.
Slowly blend in milk and lemon oil. In a separate bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and fold into the butter and egg mixture until combined. Pour batter into a greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan and bake 55 to 60 minutes in an oven preheated to 350 F until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Turn loaf out of the pan. While bread is still hot, poke holes all around with a toothpick, and spoon the glaze evenly over the loaf. Makes 8 servings, each about 11 mg THC based on a 20 percent THC strain.
To make glaze, stir together 3 tablespoons lemon juice and ½ teaspoon lemon oil into 1 cup confectioners’ sugar. *Use the search bar to find the recipe on this site.
