Lemon Cake with Lemon Icing
Updated: Jul 16, 2021
Archie, Rissie, and I loved the passionfruit cake so much that I had to make another cake the next day. As my beautiful Pa Jack Lemon Tree is heavily laden with the most beautiful bush lemons I thought I would make a lemon version. I am a complete sucker when it comes to anything citrus, and my favourite citrus is lemon.
I am head over heels in love with this cake recipe. It is super easy, uses one bowl and I also love mixing it by hand rather than using my mix-master. It makes me feel like a little Aussie Betty Crocker, especially with the log fire burning in my kitchen.
Lemon Cake with Lemon Icing:
2 ½ cups self-raising flour
1 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
¾ cup almond milk
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup water
170ml lemon juice
Line an 8-inch round cake tin with baking paper.
Preheat fan-forced oven to 180-degrees Celsius.
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Add the wet ingredients to the centre.
Mix with a wooden spoon or whisk until combined.
Bake in the oven for 50 minutes.
Allow to cool on wire rack.
80ml lemon juice
2 ½ cups icing sugar
Combine juice and icing sugar in a bowl to create icing. I like to start with the juice and gradually add the icing sugar until it is the consistency I want.
Ice cake and finish off with a little lemon zest.
