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!
