Ingredients
  • 120g Asda Free From Dairy Free Sunflower Spread, plus extra for greasing
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp Dr. Oetker Gluten Free Baking Powder
  • 250g Asda Free From Plain Soya Yogurt Alternative
  • ½ tsp Dr. Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Extract
  • 3 unwaxed lemons, zest and juice of 2, plus 1 thinly sliced
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease and line a 20cm/1L loaf tin.

  • Beat together the spread, 175g of the sugar, the flour, baking powder, soya yogurt, vanilla and lemon zest until smooth.

  • Spoon into the tin and level the top. Bake for 50-60 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

  • Meanwhile, simmer the lemon slices in 50ml water and 75g of the sugar for 10 mins. Drain then cool on baking paper.

  • For the glaze, stir the remaining sugar into the lemon juice (about 100ml). While the cake is warm, poke a few holes in the top and drizzle over the glaze. Cool in the tin, turn out, then top with the lemon slices to serve.
