No, the olive oil adds a nice richness to the lemon loaf that is generally taste less.
No, fresh lemons are not strictly nessicary. This recipe calls for the juice of two lemons and the rind of one and a half. If you are using lemon juice from a bottle then omit the rind, add about 1/4 cup of lemon juice to the cake, and about 1 tbs to the lemon glaze.
It depends on your body and your goals. I try to limit myself to one to two servings of keto desserts per day as lots of sugar alcohols can cause a person to stall in their weightloss.
