Recently, I made a Lemon Pound Cake recipe and it was such a big hit I decided I had to make it for my reader, so I went out and bought more lemons.
The next day a reader tagged me on Facebook requesting a recipe for pound cake. I searched for my Lemon Pound Cake recipe from scratch and decided to make it again and share it here on my website.
Here are the reasons why this simple lemon glazed pound cake was such a delightful treat:
- Just the right sweetness
What You Will Need To Make Vegan Lemon Pound Cake
- Gluten-Free all-purpose flour, I used Pillsbury All Purpose, I'm not sure that other brands will work.
- Fresh Lemons -Juice and zest for great lemony taste
- Sugar, I love organic cane sugar - Florida Crystals
- Baking Powder, aluminum-free baking powder like Rumford or Hain
- Turmeric, I added a pinch for the yellow color
- Salt, I love to use Redmond Real Salt
- Almond Milk or any non-dairy milk
- Ground flaxseeds. to act as a binder. I used yellow so it would blend with the color of the pound cake.
- Coconut oil, for a moist cake but you can substitute with applesauce.
- Lemon glaze for pound cake.
- 9x5x2 baking pan
How To Make A Lemon Pound Cake?
To make this lemon pound cake from scratch, mix almond milk, ground flaxseeds, lemon juice, coconut oil and lemon zest in a medium bowl and set aside. Combine the gluten-free flour, sugar, baking powder, turmeric and salt in a large bowl.
Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients until smooth. Pour batter into a prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely then add the lemon glaze.
