Lemon Loaf Cake DF EF GF WF SF NF

This is my variation on a gingerbread loaf recipe in Pippa Kendrick's "Free From Food for Family and Friends".  It's a fabulous recipe, rises well and is so simple and quick to make.


  • 275g Gluten-free self-raising flour (I use Doves Farm)
  • 1tbsp Mixed Spice
  • 1tsp additional gluten-free baking powder
  • 200g soft light brown sugar
  • 100ml sunflower oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice 
  • 1tsp lemon flavouring
  • 170ml water

  • Preheat the oven to 200C (400F) then lightly grease a large loaf tin and line with baking parchment.(Tip, I buy the ready formed loaf tin liners from Lakeland!)
  • Sift flour, baking powder and mixed spice into a large mixing bowl.
  • Pour over the lemon juice, sunflower oil and lemon flavouring plus 170ml water and mix until you have a smooth batter.
  • Tip the mixture into the prepared loaf tin, levelling the top with the back of a spoon.
  • Bake for 30-35 mins or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool for ten minutes before transferring to a wire rack.  DO NOT CUT until full cool.

Freezes really well in slices ready for last minute treats, packed lunches and days out!
