VEGAN LEMON LOAF


It was one of my good friend's birthdays and she is so incredibly supportive of me and especially this blog! I wanted to make her a lil' something and whip together a loaf cake from The Conscientious Eater. I made a small change of using vegetable oil instead of coconut oil and it came out great.


INGREDIENTS

LOAF

- 2 tbs. Lemon Zest

- ¼ cup Lemon Juice

- ¾ cup Oat Milk

- ½ cup Vegetable Oil

- ¾ cup Granulated Sugar

- 2 tsp. Baking Powder

- ½ tsp. Baking Soda

- ½ tsp. Salt

- 1 ½ cups All Purpose Flour


GLAZE

- 1-2 tbs. Lemon Juice

- 1 cup Powdered Sugar


INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease or line your loaf pan(s).

  2. In a large bowl, zest two lemons until you get about 2 tbs. of lemon zest.

  3. Then add the lemon juice, oat milk, vegetable oil, and sugar until combined.

  4. Whisk in baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  5. Last, stir in flour until a smooth batter forms.

  6. Pour batter into pan(s) and bake for 45-50 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

  7. While the cake cools, prepare your glaze. In a small bowl, add powdered sugar and slowly add lemon juice until a smooth and thick glaze forms. Be careful not to make the glaze too runny.

  8. Once the cake is cooled completely, go ahead and glaze the loaf cake.

  9. Garnish with lemon zest, lemon slice, or another fresh citrus.

TIPS
  1. Too much beating of the filling mixture creates air in the batter and causes it to crack.

  2. Don't rush the cooling process!!

I hope you found this recipe easy to make and definitely easy to enjoy! Finding vegan alternatives that don't require special ingredients can sometimes be difficult when your household isn't entirely vegan. So I appreciate the simplicity of this recipe and how easy it is to make!
