This cake is delicious and moist on it’s own as muffins too, but for a little extra yumminess, a simple lemon glaze goes well OR dress it up for a special occasion with a cream cheese icing topped with toasted coconut threads, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and finely diced apricots.
1c icing sugar
Freshly squeezed lemon
Add small amounts of lemon juice to the icing sugar until the right consistency is achieved.
Lemony cream cheese icing
0.5 block of Philadelphia cream cheese (at room temperature)
2T butter (at room temperature)
2c icing sugar
1T lemon juice
1T lemon zest (optional)
Beat cream cheese and butter until soft. Beat in lemon juice. Gradually add icing and beat until well combined and aerated.
