A hobbyist by heart. A plantbased runner who enjoys dairy-free baking. I like to run and write on the sideline and recently discovered my fondness of baking and making guilt-free desserts. Just like running I get the same relaxing feeling when I bake.

  1. This cake looks fabulous and I love that it is dairy free. I love lemon cake as it is always refreshing. Thanks for a great recipe!

    1. Hi Sara! I haven’t tried I usually use Almond and Oat milk. If you use Soy milk maybe choose unsweetened for a healthier option since Soy milk is sweet. Thank you πŸ™‚
