Secret superstar ingredient used to make eggless lemon cake recipe

Zest of lemon is the secret superstar here in this recipe. Since this cake is lemon cake, it’s but obvious that it has lemon juice. Addition of lemon zest takes the level of this cake a notch higher.

My whole house was wafting with the lemony aroma while it was getting baked.

A word of caution, to zest a lemon, always use a lemon zester or a small grater. Make sure to zest only yellow part of lemons and not the inner white skin of the lemon which is bitter in taste.

In addition, I would suggest you to use the freshly zested peels, and freshly squeezed lemon juice for making this cake

Lemon icing for Eggless lemon cake

Icing of lemon drizzled on this cake  adds some more lemony flavor to it. Kind of double dose of lemons!!

Once your cake is baked and cooled off completely then only pour the icing over the cake.

In conclusion, if the cake is not cooled enough, it will absorb all the icing and you wouldn’t have nice crust on top.
