  3. Pour the wet ingredient into the dry ingredients and fold until combined.
  4. Add the oil and fold in lightly
  5. Pour batter into a well greased 9×5-inch loaf pan.
  6. Bake at 180 degrees for 30 minutes or until a toothpick stuck into center of the cake comes out clean.
  7. While the cake is baking make the syrup by placing the sugar and the lemon juice in a small saucepan on the stove and bringing to a simmer until the sugar has all dissolved. Set this aside.
  8. As soon as the cake comes out of the oven prick the surface with a toothpick and drizzle the syrup over the top.
  9. Allow the cake to cool.
  10. Make the lemon icing by combining all the icing ingredients in a small bowl with an electric mixer on low speed.
  11. When the loaf is cool, remove it from pan and frost the top with the icing.
  12. Let the icing set up before slicing if you can wait that long!
