This moist and spongy lemon cake is prepared with fragrant rosemary and flavourful olive oil, then topped with a tangy lemon curd spread.


We made it vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free to give you a healthier dessert with five times fewer fats and sugars than the classic one.

Step 1

Soak the flaxseeds in water for 10 minutes or until they form a gel-like mixture. Meanwhile, in a food processor, blitz the oats into flour and blend the bananas into a creamy mash.

Step 2

In a mixing bowl, combine oat flour, almond meal, starch, and baking powder and add a pinch of salt. Next, incorporate the "flax-egg", mashed bananas, oil, milk, zest and juice of the lemon, and dried rosemary.

Step 2

Mix well into a smooth cake batter.

Step 3

Transfer the batter into a 20cm (8 inches) cake tin and bake the cake for 55 minutes at 150°C (300°F).
