Happy Spring! This is the best cake ever! I am a LEMON freak and this is so amazing!
For the cake:
2 large Lemons (or limes)
2 tbsp Lime Peel (2 or 3 limes)
1 1/2 cup flour (you can use whole wheat)
1 cup Sugar (vegan sugar for 100% vegan)
1 tsp Baking Soda
5 tbsp Oil
1 tsp Vinegar
1 tsp Vanilla
3/4 cup Water
For the Icing:
2 tbsp Lemon or Lime Juice
3/4 cup Confectioners Sugar
Put flour, sugar, and baking soda into a mixing bowl and mix well. Then grate the lime until you have at least 2 tbsp of peel. Juice the lemon to get 3 tbsp of juice. Mix that with water in a separate bowl from the flour mix. To that add the oil, vanilla and vinegar. Mix very well. Then pour the wet ingredients into the flour and mix well with a whisk. It will foam a little but keep whisking. Pour into your baking dish and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
Juice the lemons or the limes, or just combine both until you get 2 tbsp of juice. Then mix with the powdered sugar and pour on top of the cake. Let it rest for at least an hour for the icing to harden. If you don’t care about that, just enjoy it as is. do not pour the glaze over a hot cake because it will get absorbed and won’t look good. Wait until the cake is cool.
Peace, Love & Happiness,
