  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice, fresh
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 tsp lemon zest, finely grated


  • In a small mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients. Stir vigorously with a whisk or fork until all of sugar and lemon juice are combined. Use immediately.


The icing will be thick, but pourable. If it is too thick to pour, add more lemon juice, a few drops at a time, until the icing is thin enough to pour. If the icing is too thin, add more powdered sugar, a 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until the icing thickens.
Nutrition based on using glaze to ice 12 cupcakes, 12 slice cake or loaf.
