Recipe's preparation

    Cake Mixture
  1. Preheat oven to 180 deg C. Line a loaf tin with baking paper. Add vinegar into a separate bowl/cup or measuring jug and pour the soy milk ontop. Set aside (this is vegan buttermilk)

    Peel the skin off 2 medium sized lemons (try not to get too much white pith when youre peeling). Juice 1 of the lemons. Set aside

    Add the lemon peel into mixing bowl and mix for 10 seconds speed 8. Scrape bowl down & Repeat if needed. (it should be in very small pieces). Add the vegan butter, white sugar, vanilla extract & fresh lemon juice to mixing bowl and mix for 30 seconds speed 5.

    Add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix for 10 seconds speed 5. Add the buttermilk in and mix for 15 seconds speed 4.

    The mixture will be quite thick. If its not completely combined just use the spatula to combine it a little more by hand as you dont want to over mix it.

    Pour into prepared loaf tin and spread evenly. Bake for 40 mins. Take it out of the oven and top it with foil so the top doesnt get burnt. Place it back in for another 20 minutes. This all depends on your oven. You want it to be lightly golden ontop just before you cover it.

    Check its ready by putting a knife in the cake - If the knife comes out clean its ready. Take it out of loaf tin gently and place on a cooling rack to cool completely.

    Wash and dry mixing bowl.
  2. Drizzle
  3. Add icing sugar and lemon juice to bowl and mix for 20 seconds speed 4 until completely combined.

    Once cake is cool top it with the icing. Cover and place in fridge for 10 minutes to set. Slice and serve. This cake should last at room teperature for a few days or up to 1 week if kept covered in the fridge.
