Double Glazed Citrus Loaf

3 eggs

1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce

1/2 c. orange juice

3/4 c. vanilla Greek yogurt

2 t. vanilla

3 c. flour

2 c. sugar

2 t. baking soda

1 t. baking powder

1 t. salt

1 lemon - juice and zest


1 1/2 c. powdered sugar

1 lemon - juiced

3 T. orange juice

1 t. almond extract

1.  In a stand mixer or large bowl with a hand held beater combine the eggs, applesauce, orange juice, yogurt, vanilla and sugar until smooth.

2.  Zest the lemon fully into the batter and then cut in half and squeeze all juice {careful to catch the seeds} also into the batter.

3.  Sift together the remaining dry ingredients, adding to the mixture and fold together gently.

4.  Pour into two greased loaf pans.

5.  Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until a deep golden brown and the center is set.  Allow to cool completely.

6.  When the loaves have cooled, use a kabob stick or a fork and poke small holes into the loaf.

7.  To make the glaze sift the powdered sugar in a bowl.  Add in the orange juice, almond extract and the juice of a lemon.  You will want a thin glaze, so if too thick add in more orange or lemon juice. Pour half of the glaze over the cooled loafs and allow it to harden.  Then pour the remaining glaze of the loafs.

8.  Store in airtight containers to keep fresh.
