May is birthday month for a lot of my friends and what better way to celebrate than to bake them a celebratory vegan lemon drizzle? The lemon and lime icing is a subtle little twist on the classic lemon drizzle we all love.
210g plain flour
200g caster sugar
1tsp baking soda
230ml oat milk
50ml vegetable oil
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
Pinch of salt
150g icing sugar
1tbsp lime juice
2tbsp lemon juice
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
Whisk together the vegetable oil, caster sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and oat milk (and vanilla essence if you fancy a bit sweeter).
In a separate bowl, sieve the flour, baking soda and salt together and mix it together.
Gradually fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until smooth.
Line a loaf tin with grease proof paper and bake in the middle of the oven for 1 hour (top tip: cover with foil if it starts to cook too quickly).
Leave the loaf to cool, then mix the icing sugar, lemon and lime juice together - drizzle over the top of the cooled loaf (top tip: if the icing is too loose, add some more icing sugar - if too thick, add some more lemon juice).
Top with fresh berries, mint, lemon and icing sugar. Enjoy!
