White Chocolate Lemon Bread

I know I’ve mentioned this before but I always get super nervous to make bread. I’m just unfamiliar with yeast and haven’t used it a ton so it kinda freaks me out. I’m always looking out for bread recipes then that contain NO yeast because I feel like those are the ones I can actually do – LOL!

My mom, on the other hand, has been working with yeast all her life and can tackle ANY bread recipe. Fortunately for me, she found a great White Chocolate Lemon Bread recipe that contains NO yeast. She tried it out and made a load for each of the families (this was  few months back before we moved to TX). The loaf was literally gone in MINUTES (no joke!) I was thrilled to find out that it was a non-yeast bread recipe that was delicious. She assured me it would be super easy and I can’t wait to try it out myself.

Look how delicious this is?!

The hubby claims this is his new favorite bread. I may have to agree with him. I’m not a HUGE Lemon fan, but this recipe had just the right amount of lemon that it wasn’t overwhelming at all. And the glaze on top was definitely my favorite part. :)

White Chocolate Lemon Bread
  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 2 small boxes white chocolate pudding mix instant
  • 4 eggs
  • ⅛ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • zest of one lemon
  1. Mix cake mix, pudding mix, oil and eggs in a bowl with a beater until well combined.
  2. Add sour cream, lemon juice and lemon zest. Mix by hand. Pour into greased loaf pans.
  3. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes (For smaller loaf pans, bake for about 15 minutes). Let cool.
  4. Poke holes in the top of the bread and drizzle with glaze (To make, mix 1½ cup powdered sugar, juice and zest of one lemon - add more lemon juice if glaze is too thick). ENJOY!

I can’t wait to have some more of this delicious bread!! If you like Lemon and White Chocolate I’d definitely give this one a try.


– Can be made in 2 regular loaf pans. Bake at 350 for about 35-42 minutes (until a toothpick inserted comes out clean).

– Can also be made in smaller loaf pans (ours were the paper kind that are about 2.5 inches x 6 inches) and were cooked for 15-20 minutes.

-For a healthier version you can substitute the sour cream for greek vanilla yogurt.

-You can make these as muffins (makes about 2 dozen) – bake for about 12- 18 minutes.

    Kristyn, this bread looks delicious!! I was super nervous about using yeast too until I discovered a thermometer especially for yeast! It gives you this little window of how hot your water has to be to make the yeast grow, and now I’m making perfect pizza dough. And . . . realizing this sounds like spam. I swear I don’t sell them, lol!

    Looks delicious!! I agree with you….I’m a little hesitant about making anything with yeast. I have tried a couple of recipes and they actually turned out pretty good. But, it I can make bread without yeast, it is great!! Thanks for the great recipe!!

    I love anything with LEMON but adding that white chocolate pudding mix… makes this bread look divine :) It would be fun to drizzle melted white chocolate over the bread as well!

    So the glaze calls for lime juice. Is that a misprint? You just don’t mention lime anywhere else…..

  15. 24

    Looks yummy! What size pan?

  16. 25

    This bread is amazing! I cooked it a little longer than I should, but now I know how long it’ll take w/ my oven & loaf pan. I am NOT a baker, thanks for giving me back the confidence to try! I’m eating leftovers as I type this… YUM!

    • 26

      Thanks for stopping by Tabitha! SO glad you were able to make this and that it turned out great!! Be sure to try my other bread recipes because they are just as good AND just as easy! Have a great day. :)

  17. 29

    Can you tell me what size of pan you used and is there really lime in the glaze? Thanks! It looks fantastic!!

    • 30

      HI Pam. So sorry for the confusion… we used small paper pans, but I added in the notes different times for different sizes of pans. :)

  18. 31

    I read through the comments to look for answers to the questions I had. Several had the same questions that I do, and they were not answered. What size pans (taking it is regular size bread loaf pans) and how many, as the directions say to pour into greased loaf pans??? Also, directions to mix powdered sugar with lime juice. Life isn’t listed as an ingredient. Is it Lime or Lemon?

    • 32

      You can make it as 2 regular size loaf pans or smaller ones… I added some info under NOTES above. And the glaze calls for lemon… not lime. Sorry about that. :/

  19. 33

    In my last comment, I meant to say that LIME isn’t listed as an ingredient. Is it Lime or Lemon?

    • 34

      I’m sorry for all the confusion… it’s lemon. I had new baby, new move brain which means it was mush at the time when I posted this. :/

  20. 35

    Nice recipes. Thank you so much. Have a great weekend!

  21. 37

    With what else can you eat these kind of bread? or it is like a desert?

  22. 39

    So, where does the white chocolate come from? I’ve read the recipe carefully and the notes but I can’t find the white chocolate anywhere but in the title.

  23. 40

    Why the hell would anyone call this a “bread”?!?!?!?! It’s a freaking packaged cake mix combined with a packaged pudding mix!!!!!!!!

  24. 41

    I have made this 2x and it is excellent! It is my new favorite! It is so delicious that when I make it, I have to take it somewhere so I do not eat it all!

    • 42

      LOL!! Isn’t it so good?? I love sweet bread recipes (especially those that don’t involve yeast)! So glad you like it, and thank you for stopping by. :)

  25. 43

    I made cupcakes. These are so wonderful. I love lemon so right up my alley! Besides, they are pretty too.

  26. 44

    This recipe looks amazing and I cannot wait to make it, but I have a quick question. Adding water to the mix is not listed as an ingredient, is that correct? Look forward to your reply and to both gifting and eating this delicious lemon piece of heaven. Thank you!
