Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 Tablespoon oil (I used canola + coconut oil)
  • 1 egg, either whole or divided where the egg yolk is added & the egg white is whipped, making the cake a little lighter
