Lemon Sour Cream Cake (vegan)

Lemon cake is totally underrated. Sure, it's hard to go past a rich chocolate cake or a warm doughnut, but a nice lemon cake is fresh, light and has just the right amount of tang.

Ingredients for the cake

  • 250g caster sugar 
  • 260g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking power
  • 1 tbs lemon rind
  • 2 tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence 
  • 60ml vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup (approximately 80g) vegan sour cream (I used Dibble!)

Ingredients for the glaze

  • 2 tbs icing sugar
  • 1/2 tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 1 small passion fruit
  • 1/2 tbs soy milk
