Vegan lemon cake (oil reduced)

Juicy, fluffy vegan lemon cake with only 7 ingredients, easy and delicious

Vegan lemon cake (reduced oil) - 7 ingredients recipe

Vegan lemon cake is certainly nothing new, but I was just so craving it. There is already a lemon cake on my site, but this new recipe is a completely different version and especially oil-reduced. I especially love that when I can simplify things and make them healthier too. Sauer macht lustig is the motto for today’s cake and I think we can all use a dose of humor. In any case, I hope that the current crisis in Ukraine will have subsided by the time this article is published. At the moment you don’t see many smiling faces, people are sad and indignant. Still, I hope to change that with this delicious cake.

This sponge cake can’t be beat in its simplicity. We need vegan yogurt, oil, raw cane sugar, spelt flour, lemon juice, baking powder and lemon zest. That’s all there is to it and it’s really only 7 ingredients. Mix everything into a fine dough and it’s off to the oven. The cake really bakes up already and becomes moist and fluffy, a real treat!

If you like you can add a delicious frosting on top, but that is optional. For those who want to cut down on sugar, you can also omit the topping.

NOTE: With the lemon applies not only the saying sour makes merry, but the fruit is also so very healthy and rich in:

  • Rich in vitamin C (good for the heart and immune system)
  • Vitamin B6
  • Reduce the risk of urinary stones
  • Essential oils in the shell have a mood-lifting effect

This cake fits just perfectly in March, because it is very refreshing and makes you want to spring. Who knows, maybe it will soon be warm enough for the first coffee party on the balcony or terrace?
