Vegan Lemon Sponge Cake, Simple and Fluffy

Vegan lemon cake

This was the last cake I made before my oven said enough. A vegan lemon pound cake which, without a doubt, I will do again when I have the new oven because, in addition to a remarkable citrus flavor, it has a spongy texture that makes it ideal to accompany coffee in the middle of the morning.

The ingredients are simple and how to proceed as well. It does not contain eggs or any other ingredient of animal origin so it can also be incorporated into a vegan diet. Everyone at home can enjoy it and it will become a great ally when you have guests.

It is a base cake that you can also transform into a delicious dessert on those occasions opening it and filling it with some cream or incorporating a frosting. I love the combination of lemon with cheese or chocolate, but surely you can come up with other ideas to make this cake a festive cake. Can we get down to business?
