Lemon Pound Cake

Serves 10people
cup vegan butter (Earth Balance), room temperature*
cup sugar
tbsp ground flax seed
cup + 2 Tbsp almond milk
tbsp aquafaba*
zest of 1 lemon, finely grated*
tbsp fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon’s worth)
1 3/4
cups Bob’s Red Mill organic all-purpose flour
tsp salt
1 1/2
tsp baking powder
tsp tumeric (for color), optional
for the glaze:
cup powdered sugar
tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Melt a bit of butter and add to an 8×4″ baking pan. Use a pastry brush to spread it all around the pan, making sure to get in all the corners. Add about 2 Tbsp flour to the pan and shake it around until fully coated. Tap excess flour out and set aside.
Add the butter and the sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment.* Beat on medium speed until fluffy, about 4 minutes.
While the butter and sugar cream, combine the almond milk and flax seed in a medium bowl and mix well. Grate the lemon zest and add to the milk along with the lemon juice. In another bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and tumeric.
Add the aquafaba to the mixing bowl 2 Tbsp at a time and beat for about 20-30 seconds between additions.
Add about 1/3 of the flour mixture to the mixer and mix on low until just incorporated. Follow with half the liquid, mix on low to combine. Repeat with 1/3 the flour, the rest of the milk, then the remainder of the flour.
Pour the batter into the prepared 8×4″ baking dish. Bake for 50-60 minutes, tenting with foil after about 45 minutes if needed to prevent over-browning. When done, a pick inserted into the center should come out clean.
Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then carefully run a thin knife around the edges and invert to remove from the pan. Gently flip to right the cake, then let cool completely before glazing.
for the glaze:
Sift the powdered sugar into a medium bowl. Add the lemon juice and stir until incorporated. Drizzle over the top of the cake, spreading with a spoon if needed. Let harden for 1-2 hours before serving. Eat!
