3 eggs
3/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon lemon zest (or zest from 1 large lemon)
2 tablespoon lemon extract
1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

For the glaze:
1/2 cup icing sugar
1-2 tablespoon lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a loaf pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, and yogurt and whisk until smooth. Drizzle in oil and continue whisking.
Add lemon zest, extract and juice and continue to whisk.
Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk for about one minute until fully combined. Do not overmix.
Pour the batter into your loaf pan and smooth the top.
Bake for 50 mins. Check that it is done with a toothpick.
Allow loaf to cool in the loaf pan for an hour. Then remove loaf from the pan and allow it to cool on a wire rack for another hour or 2 until completely cooled.
