For the Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Lemon Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9-inch round cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  3. Prepare Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, mix together the almond milk, vegetable oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Bake the Cake: Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool the Cake: Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, carefully transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Prepare the Glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Adjust the consistency by adding more lemon juice if needed.
  8. Glaze the Cake: Once the cake has cooled completely, drizzle the lemon glaze over the top using a spoon or spatula. Allow the glaze to set for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
