Make Loaf Cake
- Preheat oven to 175°C (350°F) and generously grease a loaf tin with oil or vegan butter.
- Make vegan buttermilk by combining almond milk and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl or measuring cup. Let sit for 3-5 minutes.
- Measure dry ingredients into a medium bowl. Mix to combine. Add wet ingredients and stir to combine with a spatula or wooden spoon.
- Pour batter into prepared loaf tin and bake at 175°C for 40-45 minutes or until a cake picker comes out clean.
- Let cake cool for at least 10 minutes before loosening it with a small knife. Place a cooling rack on top, flip and place cake on the rack. Let cake cool completely before cutting.
- Notes: The cake is crumbly, so make sure you let it cool entirely before cutting to prevent cracking or breaking apart of the cake.
Make Yoghurt Drizzle
- Combine lemon juice and sugar in a small bowl and stir until the sugar has dissolved completely. Add yoghurt and stir through.
- Pour drizzle over the cooled cake and decorate with lemon zest and poppyseeds (optional). Place in the fridge for storage (up to 5 days) or enjoy immediately.
