I've been meaning to add this recipe for a long time, Lemon Cake is truly one of my absolute favourite cakes on earth and this one being vegan is far more gentle on the waistline. Try to source unwaxed lemons since they are so much nicer and cleaner to use!
Lemon cake recipe
- 110g butter
- 170g self raising flour
- 4 tablespoons milk
- 170g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- lemon zest and juice from 1 lemon
- 3 tablespoons icing sugar
Preheat the oven to 180 C (gas mark 4). Grease and line a 23x13x7cm cake tin.
Beat the first 5 ingredients along with the lemon zest together until smooth and creamy. Place cake mixture into ready tin and bake in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes.
Heat the fresh lemon juice in the microwave for 45 secs, and stir in the icing sugar. While still hot in the tin, add the lemon mixture over cake. Alternatively, if lemon sauce is poured over cold cake, it gives a glaze to the top.
