If you’re gluten-free and plant-based, don’t worry – you can still make this vegan lemon drizzle cake recipe by using gluten free flour! Since this kind of cake works best with superfine flour, try to choose an all-purpose gluten free flour (rather than almond flour, cornflour or oat flour).
Although these are gluten-free flours, they will not work well for this vegan lemon drizzle cake recipe because they are too rough and chewy. This cake tastes best when it is light and fluffy!
