Lemon Drizzle Cake

I cannot express how much I love lemony desserts and sweets. Although I love chocolate and eat it in large quantities, when it comes to cakes I prefer fresher flavours. Today I’m making one of my favourite cakes of all time and an absolute classic; lemon drizzle cake.

I probably say this for most of my cooking but his cake really doesn’t taste vegan. Even though it’s relatively low fat, it’s sweet, rich and indulgent in all the right ways.

It tastes even better on a sunny day. After all the snow I really needed something to taste the hopefully-coming-soon spring. Sunshine in every bite! I’m sure it’ll taste even better if you’re lucky enough to have your own lemon tree and a fresh supply of just-picked lemons.

My favourite way of enjoying a slice is with a lovely cup of Earl Grey, preferably sitting in the garden.

I hope you try this recipe and if you post your culinary experiment on social media please tag me and use the #josveganlab hashtag. I’d love to see your wonderful and inspired creations!

Recipe Notes

Jo's Tips

  • Most plant milks will work for this recipe. So far I have tried soya, oat and cashew milk all with great success.
  • Make sure your lemons are unwaxed. Not only there's no nutritional value in wax but most  lemons are waxed with shellac.
  • You can use any vegan sugar for this cake. I prefer brown sugar because it gives a lovely taste.
