If you follow me on any form of social media, you are probably aware of my tiny addiction to Starbucks. I love their coffee, food and sweet treats. One of my favorite things, aside from the coffee is their delicious iced lemon bread. I don’t like things that are lemon most of the time but iced lemon bread….you rock.
The problem with this addiction is that grabbing a slice of bread is not cheap. It is actually cheaper to make an entire loaf at home then buy one slice at Starbucks.
Thankfully, I can now feed my lemon bread addiction with this amazing copycat recipe and if you are hooked like I am, you are going to be so happy that you found this post!
