I have a yellow obsession at the moment. I wear yellow clothes, drink yellow smoothies and now bake yellow cakes. But this cake turned out soo good and I can’t even describe to you how happy I was with this.
I had a little baking break. I don’t know why but every recipe I tried to make turned out bad, so I lost the motivation and joy to bake for a few weeks. BUT then I discovered this amazing baking blog and this girl totally made me want to bake again. Her recipes look and sound soo good and her pictures are a dream. Her recipes are also vegan and I love to try new recipes and vegan always sounds so much cooler, so I made her vegan lemon cake.
I am going to link the recipe here because she explains every step so much better than I would do.
I baked this cake yesterday and I had a pretty good day (shocking because it was a Monday). I woke up at around 8 am, had some chocolate for breakfast (so healthy) and then made myself some pasta for lunch. I also read Harry Potter, caught up with comments and Instagram and watched a few videos. By the time I went food shopping it was about 12 o’clock so not that late yet. I love going food shopping. It’s such a calming thing to do and I like the little walk to my supermarket.
Although the sun was shining, which always puts me in such a good mood, it was so so so so cold outside. I felt like a snowman, my hands felt frozen, so excited for spring. I only needed to get a few things, but you know how food shopping works and in the end I had a little more in my basket. I currently love to drink smoothies and really wanted to try a carrot one so I bought one (saved some money because the brand was on sale). I also bought the ingredients for a second cake I want to make in a few days, so that was exciting to me.
If you not know already I am currently trying different lacto-free products because dairy and I don’t like each other anymore. I bought some lacto-free strawberry yoghurt (which is so good) and also some lemon sorbet ice cream (this stuff!!). Oh and I had to buy some sugar for my cake. After that I carried everything back home and after a little break, I made my cake.
I’ve only baked one vegan cake so I wasn’t so sure if this would turn out good. I constantly checked my cake and although it already had a little tan on one side I left it in for 10 more minutes because the inside was still super soft and sticky. After those 10 minutes the cake looked fine so I got it out of the oven.
You aren’t supposed to cut a cake when it’s still warm, but I was too excited to try this so my piece was a little crumbly, but tasted really nice. My brother tried some and the cake was gone by today so that made me really happy. I also saved some for my mum and my dad enjoyed a few pieces as well.
I love how easy this recipe is and how delicious the cake tastes. I definitely would recommend checking your cake a few times before you take it out of the oven, but other than that this recipe is amazing and super easy to follow.
