What do I need for an easy vegan lemon loaf?
Here you will find a brief overview of which ingredients are included in the cake. You can find the exact quantities below in the recipe card.
Whole Wheat Flour (or spelt)
Apple Juice, unfiltered
Soaked Cashew Nuts
Raw Cane Sugar, ground
How do I prepare the vegan lemon loaf (CopyCat Starbrucks)?
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Now soak the cashews for 10 minutes. In the meantime, weigh the dry ingredients and put them in a bowl. Prepare a loaf pan.
Take a high speed blender and add all the ingredients except the mineral water to the mixer and mix until a creamy consistency is created.
Add all the ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir into a homogeneous dough.
Now put the dough in the loaf pan and bake the loaf between 30-45 min. Do the toothpick test to see if the dough is baked.
Let the cake cool completely before you spread the icing over it, simply stir the ingredients and spread it over the lemon cake.
Can I freeze the vegan lemon cake?
This cake is very easy to freeze, just freeze the cake in slices. Make sure the cake is packed airtight.
How do I store leftovers?
You can store the leftovers in the refrigerator in a sealable box. The loaf lasts there for about 5 days. I think the cake tastes best fresh or thawed.
Can I prepare the cake in advance?
What you could do is to weigh the dry ingredients and set aside. Prepare the moist ingredients in an extra bowl. Leave the sparkling water. And only stir together the next day and add the sparkling water.
A few tips for the perfect vegan lemon cake:
- Mix the moist ingredients into a cream without pieces.
- Decorated for Easter with edible flowers.
- If you don't like apple juice, take about ⅓ of the amount of applesauce, unsweetened + ⅔ water. Eventually you have to add some more maple syrup.
- The icing is optional, you could also spread the cake with vegan white chocolate, which you make lemony with lemon extract.
