Delicious vegan Lemon Cake

Lemon cakes are super simple to make. But also if you wanna turn it into a vegan treat? Sure! Here’s our easy and delicious recipe:

You’ll need

  • 300g whole wheat flower
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 110g cane sugar
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 100g (3.5oz) olive oil
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 240g coconut yoghurt
  • 50g margarine (vegan)
  • 100ml lemon juice, freshly pressed
  • A pinch of poppy seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • 200g icing sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice, freshly pressed
  • 1 tsp water (if needed)

And now, for the magic:

  1. Pre-heat your oven at 160°C / 320°F.
  2. Mix the flower, baking powder, vanilla, lemon zest, coconut yoghurt, poppy seeds, sugar and salt in a bowl.
  3. Add the olive oil, melted margarine and lemon juice. Mix all ingredients until you get a smooth dough.
  4. Grease your cake form with margarine.
  5. Fill your cake batter into the form and place it in your oven for 45-50 minutes. Check with a long toothpick if the cake is done. Cover the cake with some aluminium foil, if it needs a bit more time and your cake already has the right color.
  6. Let the cake cool off.
  7. Mix the icing sugar and lemon juice until you receive a creamy texture. If it’s not creamy enough, add a tiny bit of water. The icing shouldn’t be too liquid.
  8. Spread the icing on top of your cold cake.
  9. Enjoy!

  2. Very delicious! We left out the poppy seeds (not a big fan) but then the cake got quite compact. Nevertheless, it was very tasty and the cake was moist in the middle, although we left it longer in the oven and increased the temperature for the right color:)
