You know summer is officially here when lemons have become a staple in our home. You’ll find a large bowl of them on the counter, one in just about every water I drink and somehow infused into all of my recipes. This 3 ingredient lemon glaze recipe is the perfect addition to breakfast rolls, pound cakes, sweet breads, honey lemon cake, angel food cake and so much more!
I’d like to think a glaze is icing without all the guilt, wouldn’t you agree? Just a little touch of lemon glaze to quench your summer sweet tooth without all the calories of a pile of icing.
If that’s not enough, lemon glaze creates the prettiest drizzle that enhances any basic dessert, making it feel more like a centerpiece. No cake decorating skills required, which is an added bonus for me! I still long to take cake decorating classes, but until I find the time, this glaze will do just fine!
