Vegan Meyer Lemon Cake

Last week, my friend Emily generously gifted me 3 gorgeous Meyer lemons from her CSA box.  I was looking to procrastinate so I baked this cake. 


  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp grated lemon zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup Meyer lemon juice (or any citrus; if using orange or grapefruit, also add 1 Tbsp vinegar)


  1. Preheat oven to 350℉
  2. Grease and flour an 8- or 9-in square or round cake pan.
  3. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl.
  4. Make two holes in the dry ingredients.  Add vanilla to one and the oil to the other.
  5. Pour lemon juice all over everything.
  6. Mix quickly with a fork until there are no clumps.
  7. Pour into the cake pan.
  8. Bake 35 to 40 minutes.
  9. Cool in the pan.
  10. Enjoy!
