Gemini season inspired me to create this super moist, tangy and floral dairy-free yogurt cake. I used coconut yogurt for a lactose-free option and the results are decadent! The zesty lemon pairs wonderfully with the soft notes of lavender.

Lemon and Lavender 'Yogurt' Cake [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Serves

8

Ingredients

For the Cake:

  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour mix (no gum)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cassava flour or xantham gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup vegan coconut Greek yogurt
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax, plus 6 tablespoons water)
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon culinary lavender, plus more for garnish

For the Lemon Yogurt Glaze:

  • 2 ounces coconut Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F degrees and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl (flour, baking powder) and set aside.
  3. In a stand or hand mixing bowl, add butter and syrup and whip until fluffy. Scrape the sides down with a spatula and add the flax eggs while still mixing. Then add in the vanilla and mix everything until everything is well-combined.
  4. Slowly pour in half of the flour, alternate with half yogurt and then again in that order until everything is mixed. Then add the lemon juice and zest while still mixing.
  5. Finally once well combined, turn the mixer off, and with a spatula, fold in the lavender.
  6. Scoop the batter into the parchment lined loaf pan and bake for approx. 40 minutes until lightly golden brown on top and a fork comes out clean. Once finished, let cake cool on a drying rack for 10 minutes or so.
  7. Meanwhile, whip up the lemon yogurt glaze in a food processor until a glaze has formed.
  8. Once cake is cooled off to the touch, pour glaze over top, garnish with more lavender, serve

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!
