Ingredients for one 22 cm loaf cake:
250g 2 cups spelt or all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 pinch of salt
80g (1/2 cup less 1 tbsp) granulated sugar
80g ( 1/2 cup less 1 tbsp) light brown sugar
70 ml (1/3 cup + 1 tsp) neutral vegetable oil
220 ml (1 cup less 1 tbsp) plant milk (I used soy)
30 ml (2 tbsp) lemon juice
2 tbsp organic lemon zest (about 2 lemons)
1 tsp vanilla bean paste/ extract
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp plant milk
160g icing sugar
Preheat the oven to 175| 350F. Line a 22 cm loaf tin with parchment paper.
Sift the flour and baking powder in a large bowl.
Mix the vegetable oil, salt and sugars together in a medium bowl. Add in the lemon zest, vanilla and milk and stir to combine.
Add the lemon juice and whisk to combine.
Pour the wet ingredients over the flour and whisk until just combined.
Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake for 45-47 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Let cool down into the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
For the strawberry glaze:
Add the chopped strawberries in a bowl together with sugar and lemon juice and stir to combine. Stir and mash with fork, letting sit at room temperature until strawberry juice is produced. Combine 1 tbsp of the strawberry juice with the icing sugar and milk and pour over the cool cake.
