“My daughter, Hannah, has many food allergies including dairy, eggs, and nuts. As she began to cook more for herself, Hannah wanted to find recipes for cakes and cookies that she could eat. She loves lemon and has modified a recipe from Sofia Von Porat to create a delicious vegan lemon cake that she and others with (and without) allergies can enjoy!” -Wendy, a cooking instructor at the Doctor Yum kitchen

Method

Preheat oven to 350°, grease loaf pan with spray or olive oil. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Then add water, olive oil, yogurt, lemon juice, and melted vegan butter and quickly combine all the ingredients to a smooth batter, being careful not to over mix. Pour batter into greased loaf pan and bake for 35-45 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Let cool and flip loaf pan over onto a long plate for easy removal. Mix glaze until creamy and spread over cake. Let firm before slicing, then enjoy!
