Total Time 1 hour 25 minutes

Gorgeous lemon raspberry cake made with recent lemon juice and zest, raspberries, poppy seeds and a luscious lemon raspberry frosting. This lemon poppy seed cake is made gluten unfastened because of almond flour and oat flour, and is definitely made dairy free with siggi’s raspberry plant-based yogurt and vegan butter!

  • Wet components:
  • 4 eggs, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1 (5.Three ounce) container of raspberry or mixed berry plant-based siggi’s yogurt*
  • Zest from 2 large lemons
  • 1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • Dry elements:
  • 2 3/4 cups packed blanched fine almond flour
  • 1 cup oat flour** (don't pack!)
  • 2 tablespoons poppyseeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • For the lemon raspberry frosting:
  • 1 ½ cups (12 ounces) butter or vegan buttery stick (reminiscent of Miyokos), at room temperature
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • ½ cup raspberries (to make 1-2 tablespoons raspberry puree)
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon milk, if important
  • For the filling:
  • 6 oz recent raspberries, lower in half lengthwise
  • For the garnish:
  • 6 oz recent raspberries (don't minimize!)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Line the ground of three 6-inch spherical cake pans or two 8-inch spherical cake pans with parchment paper rounds. Spray parchment paper and aspects of the pans with nonstick cooking spray. YOU SHOULD USE PARCHMENT PAPER or the cake is more likely to stick. Please don't put out of your mind.

  3. In a big bowl, whisk together the eggs, honey, yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice and almond extract. The aggregate will have to be easy and well mixed.

  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the almond flour, oat flour, poppyseeds, baking soda and salt. Add the dry substances to the rainy ingredients and blend nicely with a rubber spatula until clean.

  5. Divide batter lightly between pans and unfold out with a spatula to clean the tops. Bake for 18-28 mins within the two 8-inch pans or 25-35 minutes for three 6-inch pans. Cakes are completed when a tester comes out blank or with only a few crumbs attached. Allow the cake to chill completely earlier than frosting or getting rid of from the pans. The cake should be room temperature whilst you frost it. This is very important. Cakes can also be made a day forward should you’d like.

  6. Make your frosting: Add ½ cup raspberries to a blender and mix till clean. Pour mixture thru a sieve over a small bowl and use the back of a spoon to get the entire juice out so that you most effective have the seeds ultimate. Set the raspberry juice puree aside. In the bowl of an electrical mixer, add the softened butter or vegan butter and whip on prime till mild and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Add Four cups powdered sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and a couple of tablespoons of the raspberry puree; beat on top for 1-2 mins extra till properly combined. Taste and upload more powdered sugar in your liking, if essential. You would possibly wish to scrape the frosting down the perimeters of the bowl and then beat once more. Optional: You may need to add in a bit of little bit of milk (about 1 tablespoon) to skinny the frosting out so it’s a bit of more creamy, however it will depend on how you like it! I love a thick frosting.

  7. Now it’s time to frost the cake: place about 1 tablespoons down onto the cake stand and unfold out. Invert a cake onto the cake stand, upload about 1/2 heaping cup frosting between every layer. Cut the raspberries reserved for the filling in half lengthwise, and position them over the filling between each layer, masking the entire floor. You want to form of smoosh them into the frosting as perfect you can. It’s k if they ruin a little, but it's important that they are properly nestled into the frosting so that there aren’t large gaps between the cake layers. Repeat with each and every cake, then frost the highest and facets of the cake with the remaining lemon frosting. If the cake is fairly ‘bare’ on the out of doors, that’s okay, it’s going to be delicious!

  8. Garnish with fresh raspberries simply sooner than serving the cake to ensure they keep as contemporary as possible!

  9. Cake will stay just right at room temp for a day or so, then must be placed within the refrigerator. Cake will keep good for 5-7 days in the fridge, and should be well-covered to verify freshness.

If you wish to have to make a normal lemon buttercream, simply miss the raspberry puree, upload an extra tablespoon of lemon juice and 1-2 tablespoons of milk of choice to the frosting.

*You too can use regular siggi's raspberry or blended berry cups.

To do a crumb layer: Frost the layers as you most often would and then coat the out of doors of the cake with an overly skinny layer of the frosting. Then, position the cake within the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes before you finish frosting. This is so that the crumbs keep on with this sediment of frosting and not your primary layer.

**Feel free to make your own oat flour at house the usage of this tutorial.

Instead of using recent raspberries, you'll be able to use about ¼ cup raspberry jam between each and every layer, so that you’d want ½ cup general. See extra ideas within the weblog publish!
