Citrus Loaf Cake

So I am totally obsessed with Starbuck's Lemon Loaf Cake. It is friggin delicious. I had limes, lemons and oranges and decided to re-create the loaf cake using all the citrusy goodness.

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs, room temperature
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp orange extract
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp orange zest
1/2 tsp lime zest

2 tbsp orange juice
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp orange extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour loaf pan. In large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a separate mixing bowl, combine eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla extract, almond extract, orange extract, orange juice, yogurt and zest of lemon, orange and lime. Add flour mixture, in two separate batches, to wet mixture until fully incorporated. Pour into loaf pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.

While loaf is baking, combine juice, powdered sugar and orange extract until smooth. Add more juice if necessary to get desired consistency. Pour glaze over loaf when it comes out of the oven. Slice and enjoy!
