A vegan lemon cake always has that nice lemony taste and a light sweetness to it, doesn’t it? Mmmh the mouth already waters when reading already about this!

Today we have a very simple lemon cake recipe for you. If you like moisty cakes, this one is one of those for sure! We have also decided to publish a vegan version of the lemon cake. We wish you good luck and a lot of fun baking !

Saftiger Zitronenkuchen



  • 380 g wholemeal flour (freshly ground with a Salzburg grain mill)
  • 140 g sugar (or alternative sweeteners)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Peel of two organic lemons
  • 110 ml oil
  • 120 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 120 g apple puree
  • 230 ml plant-based drink (no soy drink, because it flocculates)


Your vegan lemon cake can be baked in a box form, but also in a ring cake form. Therefore, first of all grease the cake tin and flour it a little. Preheat the oven to 160°C circulating air.

Then grate the lemon peel and squeeze the lemons. Put the peel and the juice in two different bowls. Then mix the dry ingredients (flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, baking soda) together with the lemon peel. Then add the liquid ingredients. Take care to mix the dough only as long as necessary, but as short as possible.

Pour the dough into the prepared cake tin and then bake in the oven for about 60 minutes. If you are not sure if the cake is already done, just try it with a knitting needle. But don’t forget that it is a moisty lemon cake.

Et voilà – your lemon cake is ready and you can enjoy it right away after it has cooled down a bit!

Enjoy your meal and see you soon!
