Ingredients

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of an 8-inch round cake pan with parchment paper; coat with cooking spray. Set aside. Whisk flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl; set aside. Whisk granulated sugar, oil, 2/3 cup almond milk, 2 teaspoons lemon zest and 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice in a large bowl. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture and fold to combine. Pour into the prepared cake pan.

  • Bake the cake until golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan; let cool completely on the rack, about 45 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter.

  • Whisk confectioners’ sugar and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a small bowl until smooth. Whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon almond milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the glaze reaches the desired consistency. Pour the glaze over the cooled cake.
