vegan winter three-citrus drizzle cake

It’s Friday and I think it’s about time we all enjoyed ourselves a little cake. This Winter Three-Citrus Drizzle Cake is such a delicious way to brighten up the end of the week. Full to the brim with zesty lemons, juicy oranges, and a sharp tang of grapefruit, you’ll be heading back for a second slice of this cake! Top with plenty of citrus drizzle and you’re set! I absolutely love citrus fruits and at this time of the year I often find myself craving something a little summery. Lucky for me, citrus fruits are in season all year round, so we can enjoy a little taste of summer even in February. So, grab your apron and some lemons, and let’s get cracking!

  • serves: 12
  • preparation time: 20 minutes
  • cook time: 40 minutes
  • total time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

For the citrus cake:

  • 125ml sunflower oil
  • 65ml maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 flax eggs
  • 130g vegan Greek yoghurt
  • Juice ½ grapefruit
  • Juice ½ lemon
  • Zest 1 lemon
  • Zest 1 orange
  • 190g self raising flour
  • 120g almond flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt

For the drizzle:

  • 150g icing sugar
  • Juice of 1 grapefruit, as needed

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180˚C (350˚F) and line a large loaf tin with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the sunflower oil, maple syrup, vanilla, flax eggs, vegan yoghurt, citrus juice, and zest until everything is well combined (don’t worry if the mixture splits a little).
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, and salt until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and fold everything together gently until just combined (be careful not to knock the air out too much).
  4. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf tin and spread to flatten with a spatula. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until cooked all the way through and golden brown on the top. Once baked, leave to cool completely.
  5. In a small bowl, combine together the icing sugar and as much grapefruit juice as is needed to make a medium-thick and glossy icing. Transfer the cake to a plate and drizzle with the icing. Cut into slices and enjoy!

This cake can be stored in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 3 days.
