  • Begin by preheating your oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Prepare your baking pan by spraying it with baking spray. Then, use a pastry brush to make sure all the nooks and crannies of the pan are coated with the spray. Set aside.
  • With an electric mixer, cream together the cream cheese, butter, and sugar. Mix until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat to combine.
  • Next, add the zest and juice from one lemon along with the vanilla extract. Mix well. Add in the flour and salt and mix until just combined.
  • Add this mixture to your prepared baking pan and bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • Allow the loaf to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes. Then invert onto a cooling rack and remove from the pan. Allow the cake to completely cool before topping it with a confectioners' sugar glaze.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, start with the confectioners' sugar. Then, add the lemon juice along with the vanilla extract one tablespoon at a time to reach the desired consistency. Whisk to combine.
  • Whisk well until the glaze is smooth and no sugar clumps are visible. Drizzle onto your cake with the whisk or a spoon.
