Feeling a bit peckish? Even if you aren’t at the moment, you will be later, so may I suggest that you go and pop the oven on? Just turn it to 180°C (160°C fan, 350°F, gas 4), and then you can come back to read the recipe. I’ll wait for you😉…
Back? Great! Okey dokey, onto today’s recipe…
Earlier this week, I made a healthy chocolate cake, topping it with a chocolate buttercream frosting. Because I was sharing it with friends, I decided to top it with an extra indulgent frosting in order to ensure they would never guess that the actual cake was healthy (however I do recommend this healthy chocolate frosting)!
Including how long it took to bake and decorate, I probably spent about 2 hours on that cake.
But what if you don’t have 2 hours to spare?
Most cakes are relatively simple to make, however they do usually have quite a few ingredients. With some, you have to mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl to the wet ingredients, before combining them – which means two bowls to wash afterwards! You’re in luck today, because guess what you’ll be washing up after making this cake?
A bowl. A spoon. A loaf pan.
Made in one bowl, it takes just five minutes to whip up the mixture. Then it’s 45 minutes in the oven, followed by 10 minutes for it to cool while you pop the kettle on. That’s an hour at the most!
What’s more, it’s gluten-free, refined-sugar-free, and can even be dairy-free! But if you look at the soft, spongy texture…
…you wouldn’t be able to tell at all! AND it tastes sweet & zingy. Is zingy a way to describe flavour? It is now.😄
Shall we take an even closer look at that gorgeously soft texture?
If you quickly go and make this healthy lemon drizzle loaf cake now, you’ll be enjoying it in just an hour’s time! What are you waiting for?
Also, you can top it with this simple refined-sugar-free drizzle (which can even be completely sugar free)! A great go-to, easy guilt-free treat, this healthy lemon drizzle loaf cake is perfect to whip up for tea time!
