Full Recipe:


For the Cake:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the Lemon Drizzle:
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


For the Cake:
  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a loaf pan.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and baking powder in a big basin and mix well.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients:
    • Blend the almond milk, olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl.
  4. Combine Mixtures:
    • After you’ve poured the liquids into the dry ones, whisk them together until they’re barely incorporated. Make sure not to mix it too much.
  5. Bake:
    • After the loaf pan is ready, pour in the batter and level it out. To test doneness, stick a toothpick into the middle and bake for 45 to 50 minutes.
  6. Cool:
    • After 10 minutes, remove the cake from the pan and allow it cool fully on a wire rack.
For the Lemon Drizzle:
  1. Prepare Drizzle:
    • Combine the powdered sugar and fresh lemon juice in a small bowl and whisk until smooth.
  2. Drizzle Cake:
    • After the cake has cooled, poke many holes in the top with a toothpick or skewer. Spread the lemon glaze over the cake and let it drip into the cracks.
  3. Set Drizzle:
    • Wait a few minutes for the drizzle to set before cutting and serving.
