  • Oven
  • 7.2 x 3.7 inch Loaf Tin
  • Parchment Paper
  • Large Bowl
  • Medium Bowl
  • Grater
  • Whisk
  • Plastic Wrap
  • Tinfoil



  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tbsp Plant Milk
  • Cups Powdered Sugar


Loaf Cake

  • In medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set Aside.
  • In large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk sugar, oil, lemon juice, and lemon zest until homogenous. Add the dry ingredient and whisk until everything is combined.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let batter rest at room temperature for 45 minutes.Preheat oven to 350°F during this step.
  • Grease baking tin and line with parchment paper. Pour ½ the rested batter into the baking tin.
  • Mix the blended raspberries with remaining batter and gently pour into baking tin. Drag a spoon or toothpick through the batter in a wide zig zag lengthwise. Only do this motion once to prevent the batter from sinking to the bottom.
  • Bake in the oven at 350°F for 60 minutes. After 30 minutes, carefully cover top with tinfoil to prevent the top from burning.
  • Let cool for an hour (I promise it's worth the wait).


  • Mix together lemon juice, plant milk, and powdered sugar until smooth. Continue to stir while adding powder sugar until it reaches the consistently slightly thicker than glue.
  • Pour glaze over cooled loaf, spread into an even layer. Let glaze set, or dive in!
  • (Optional) Top with freeze-dried strawberries or raspberries!
