Who doesn’t love a nice Lemon Drizzle Cake I mean it happens to be one of my favourites. This easy lemon cake recipe is super easy to cook up as well. It’s great to make a lemon cake from scratch as well, it’s a matter of getting the ingredients and mixing them together, and who doesn’t love a nice vegan cake in any form!
The Lemon Drizzle Cake is the best thing to take into work to get the co workers on side, it was gone in minutes! It’s totally optional as well but sometimes I keep a little bit of lemon zest aside and add it to the icing at the end, just gives it that extra look that you don’t normally see. I’ve been tempted to make some vegan lemon cake but maybe in cupcake form, that would be super yummy! The great thing for me is I’m able to eat this, it’s a dairy free lemon cake and I can eat as much as I want!
Egg Free Lemon Cake
When I found that I could make it egg, dairy and gluten free I was over the moon. I have a few friends who have egg allergies so being able to make a vegan and eggless lemon cake is great, but an eggless lemon drizzle cake is even better! I also love the fact that there are no eggs in this recipe, it goes to show that you don’t need eggs to make a cake which I feel that a lot of people still don’t understand. I saw a gluten free lemon cake mix the other day that insisted on using eggs, it just isn’t needed. I’m sure someone will disagree but I’ve got a few recipes that I’ve made that say otherwise.
Gluten Free Lemon Cake
I love the fact that this cake is gluten free, I have a sister who can’t have that much gluten and my other half knows people at work who love this cake and they can’t have gluten. The thing to remember is that not all vegan products are gluten free, so that means you need to check the ingreidents to make sure that they’re vegan and gluten free, that way everyone can enjoy them. So I’m so glad that people with gluten allergies can enjoy this gluten free lemon drizzle cake.
Daire Free Lemon Cake
I’m so glad this recipe is dairy free as well, I can enjoy every single slice. I hate not being able to eat dairy and that’s the main reason I started this blog. I didn’t know that vegan recipes would be so yummy and that’s why 80% of my blog is filled with vegan recipes. So I just couldn’t wait to make this dairy free lemon drizzle cake of course.
I have to say this is the best cake for a party as well, if you’ve got Christmas coming up this might be something to make on the day if you’re stuck with ideas, although it would be great for any occasion. Enjoy a nice vegan lemon slice at Christmas, sounds great! I mean this has to be the best lemon cake around vegan or not so I hope everyone enjoys it more than I did.
