Prep Time15 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time45 mins

Ingredients
 1 ¼ cups Sugar
 5 tbsp Vegan Butter
 ½ cup Applesauce
 Zest from 1 lemom
 450 g All purpose flour
 1 tsp Baking powder
 1 tsp baking soda
 ½ cup plain non-dairy yogurt

1

Line a 13 x 9 inch (30 x 20 cm) baking pan with parchment paper (paper should hang a little over the edges) and set aside. Preheat oven to 320 degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees Celsius).

2

Make the cake:
Add the sugar and butter to a bowl of a stand mixer, and with a paddle attachment, cream until light and fluffy. In a small bowl combine the applesauce, vanilla paste and lemon zest. In a different bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda together.

3

Add in the applesauce mixture, then slowly add in the dry ingredients and the yogurt interchangeably until you have a smooth batter. Pour into the prepared baking pan and bake for about 45 minutes, until golden on top and a cake tester comes out clean from the middle.
Let cake cool on a rack while you make the glaze.

4

Make the glaze:
In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the cream cheese and butter and mix well. Add in the lime juice, then the confectioner’s sugar and beat until smooth and creamy.
Spread the glaze on the cooled cake and garnish with the fresh strawberries.
