Lemon Cake

Lemon cake recipe from my mother. Easy and quick, makes one baking tray.

Preparation time: about 45 minutes.
Suggested music: Andreas Scholl - Wayfaring Stranger (I think it sounds kind of lemony... well... )

For the dough:
  • 200 g softened margarine
  • 200 g sugar
  • 3 tablespoons soy flour or ground flax seeds + 3 tablespoons plant milk
  • 100 g corn starch
  • 300 g wheat flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 L soy milk
  • zest of 1 lemon

For the icing:
  • 200 g icing sugar
  • juice of about 1 lemon

What to do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 175 °C. Place baking sheet on a baking tray.
  2. Mix all the ingredients, thereby sifting the starch (it may form clumps otherwise), forming a not-too-solid cake batter.
  3. Pour onto the baking tray and help it spread evenly.
  4. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until the cake is slightly brown on the top.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  6. Sift the icing sugar, and add some lemon juice. Mix. Continue to add lemon juice, until you have a pourable icing. Spread on the cake using a baking brush.
  7. Wait until the sugar icing is solid (at least one hour!), cut into pieces and serve.
(This is a smaller baking tray with 2/3 of the ingredients :-) )
