🍋 Gluten-Free Lemon Cake Recipe 🍰
Gluten-Free Lemon Cake
You will need:
- 2 cups gluten-free flour blend
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, dairy-free
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- Zest and juice of 2 lemons
- First, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and lightly grease your cake pan with some dairy-free butter. This ensures that your cake won't stick to the pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour blend, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. These are your dry ingredients.
- In a separate bowl, cream together the sugar and dairy-free butter until it's light and fluffy. This process helps to incorporate air into the mixture, making the cake lighter.
- Next, beat in the eggs into the butter mixture, one at a time. This helps to ensure that the eggs are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
- After that, stir in the almond milk, vanilla extract, lemon zest, and lemon juice to the butter and egg mixture. These ingredients will give your cake a moist texture and a tangy lemon flavor.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix as it can make the cake dense.
- Pour the batter into your prepared cake pan, smoothing the top with a spatula.
- Bake the cake in your preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. This is the best way to check if your cake is fully baked.
- Finally, let the cake cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely. It's important to let the cake cool before serving to allow it to set.
