This is a really easy-to-make vegan sponge cake topped with a tangy lemon icing and it is a firm favourite in my house. It only uses a handful of cupboard ingredients to make and can be doubled to make a Victoria sponge with a filling of your choice. I've used lemon in this recipe, but you can also use a lime or an orange.
You can replace the self raising flour and baking powder with gluten free products. You can also make it healthier by only using half of the sugar.
Really lovely recipe, the whole family loved it. I didn't put icing on and only used 100g of sugar, one of which was coconut sugar. I put the juice of 1 lemon in the cake instead of just half. - 24 Mar 2018
Very easy to make. I used Gluten-free flour and baking powder and the result was described as "a triumph" by a friend (and I am no baker!!) - 21 Dec 2017
