Luscious Lemon Slices

These lemon slices include a sugar glaze that looks professional but is really easy to do!
Taken from Viva! and VVF's Kids Cook Veggie guide.

Ingredients: 

  • 100g/3 1/2 oz vegan margarine, eg Pure or Vitalite
  • 150g/5oz self-raising flour
  • 1 level tsp baking powder
  • 150g/5oz caster sugar
  • 175g/6oz silken tofu (eg Mori-Nu brand, sold in Sainsbury’s, other large supermarkets and health stores)
  • 60ml/4tbsp soya milk
  • 1 lemon, finely grated (or use a lemon zester if you have one)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • For the icing:
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 100g/3 1/ 2 oz granulated sugar
  • Method: 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4.
    2. Grease and line the bottom of a 20cm/8inch square cake tin with greaseproof paper.
    3. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and mix for 10 seconds. Scrape down the sides and mix for a further 5 seconds. If you don’t have a food processor, you can whizz the mixture with a stick blender, or very vigorously with a wooden spoon.
    4. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 25-30 minutes or until pale golden and springy.
    5. Stir together the lemon juice and the sugar for the icing.
    6. Spoon this mixture over the cake whilst it is still hot – spread evenly.
    7. Leave until cold, cut into slices and then enjoy!
