Berrylicious Lemon Cake Berrylicious Lemon Cake LPHJ Kitchen
A delicious, slightly sweet and tangy cake with a berry frosting. Perfect for those spring or summer gatherings!

  • Ingredients:
    Lemon Cake

    2/3 cup palm shortening, butter or coconut oil (I used a blend of 1/3 coconut oil, 1/3 palm)
    1/2 cup honey
    1 medium banana mashed
    1 cup applesauce
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    Juice and zest from 1 lemon
    2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (Paleo or GF blend)
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp sea salt
    1 cup milk (almond, cow, soy, coconut, etc)

    Frosting
    1 can coconut milk
    1 Tbsp raw honey
    1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
    1 Tbsp beet juice
    1 Tbsp strawberry or raspberry juice
    2 Tbsp arrowroot starch

    Mixed berries of your choice (I used strawberries and blackberries)
  • Instructions:
    In a mixing bowl, cream together palm shortening (or butter/oil) and honey. Add in mashed banana, apple sauce, egg, vanilla, lemon juice and zest. Slowly add in flour, baking powder and salt. Carefully mix in milk.

    Pour into greased cake pans and bake at 350F for about 25-35 minutes or until slightly brown and cooked through. Let cakes cool about 10 minutes and transfer to wire racks to finish cooling.

    Meanwhile, mix together frosting ingredients until smooth and slightly whipped. If necessary, add more starch about 1/4 tsp at a time to thicken frosting.

    Cut completely cooled cakes in half. Place one cake layer on a serving dish and spread with a thin layer of frosting. Top with remaining cake layers and frosting. Add cut berries to top of cake as desired.

    *Note: To make beet juice, simply steam a peeled and diced beet until soft. Puree until smooth. To make berry juice, blend about 5 berries until smooth. You can strain out seeds if desired.
    *Frosting Alternate: blend together about 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 Tbsp coconut oil, 1 Tbsp beet juice and 1 Tbsp berry juice until smooth (adding more sugar to get desired consistency).
