1 1/4 cups self raising gluten free flour

1/2 cup vegan vanilla protein powder (or sub for extra flour)

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

¾ cup sugar

2 tablespoon cornflour

8 tablespoon dairy free butter, melted and cooled

¼ cup lemon juice

Zest of one lemon

1 tsp lemon extract

1 tsp vanilla extract

¾ cup dairy free yoghurt


Juice of 1 lemon (about 3 tablespoon)

1 cup powdered sugar

¼ teaspoon lemon or vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees // air fryer 160 degrees.

In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk together the flour, baking soda, protein, baking powder, cornflour, sugar and salt.

Whisk the butter into the flour until incorporated, a few seconds.

In another bowl, mix the yoghurt, extract and lemon juice and zest until combined.

Scrape the batter into the pan and smooth the top with a spatula.

Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove and then cover lightly with tin foil. Bake for another 20 minutes until a toothpick in the centre comes out clean // Bake in the air fryer for 20 minutes, or until cooked through.

Cool the cake on a rack.

Once the cake has nearly cooled, prepare the glaze and drizzle it over.
