Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl (or the base of your stand mixer), beat the eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla extract, lemon extract and lemon juice until thoroughly combined.
Add the dry ingredients, a little at a time, to the egg mixture; beat till smooth.
Add the oil and mix well.
Pour the ingredients into a well-greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick (stuck in the middle of the loaf) comes out clean. Remove loaf from oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Remove loaf from pan when cooled.
While loaf is cooling, make the icing: Combine the icing ingredients in a small bowl. Mix on low with an electric mixer or whisk till all lumps have disappeared. When the lemon loaf has cooled, frost the top surface of the loaf with the icing. Wait for the icing to "set up", then slice into 8 - 1 inch slices.
Grab a piece of this great treat, pour yourself a cup of tea or coffee, grab a good book, sit down and get comfortable... (or if you're like some people I know...grab a slice and shove it in your mouth as you're running out the door!) Either way... ENJOY!
