Refreshing and moist – it’s simply the perfect lemon cake. You can’t not love this recipe. Especially on those beautiful, fragrant spring days. Our foodspring lemon cake shines through with whey protein made from pasture-grazing cows, just to give your muscles the optimal nutrition they need.


  • Preheat the oven to 180° C.
  • In a bowl, mix the eggs, milk, skyr, lemon zest and juice, coconut oil, and stevia.
  • Add the flour, Whey Protein, and baking powder. Mix into a batter.
  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Carefully pour the batter in.
  • Bake the lemon cake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown. Test for doneness with a toothpick.
  • If you want, mix up a glaze out of icing sugar (or powdered erythritol) and lemon juice. Drizzle or spread over the top of the lemon cake once it has cooled.
  • Enjoy!
