Citrus Velvet Cake 🍋⁠

3 cups all-purpose flour⁠
2 1/2 tsp baking powder ⁠
1/2 tsp salt⁠
2 cups sugar⁠
Zest of one lemon and 1 orange⁠
4 large eggs⁠
1 1/2 tsp mixed essence⁠
2/3 cup full fat (whole) milk, at room temperature⁠
2/3 cup Constance Estate Lemon Infused Coconut Oil⁠

Lemon Buttercream Frosting 🍰⁠
1 tbsp vanilla ⁠
4 cups icing sugar ⁠
1 cup Marigold margarine, room temperature⁠
2 tbsp lemon juice⁠
1/2 tsp salt⁠

Directions:⁠
-Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and prepare three 8-inch circle cake pans by greasing and lining with parchment paper.⁠
-In a bowl, sift or whisk the flour with the baking powder and salt.⁠
-In the bowl of your electric mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, (or with a hand mixer) beat the sugar, lemon + orange zest, eggs, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy (about 1 minute).⁠
-Then, with the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour mixture (in three additions) with the milk and oil (in two additions), beginning and ending with the flour mixture.⁠
-Evenly divide the batter among the three prepared pans, smoothing the tops with the back of a spoon or an offset spatula. Bake about 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean and the cake springs back when pressed lightly in the center. ⁠
-Place the cakes on a wire rack to cool fully before icing and decorating them.⁠
-To make buttercream whip margarine and salt for about a minute using a stand using the paddle or and electric hand mixer. Sift in the icing sugar in several batches beating on low after each addition. Add a tablespoon of the lemon juice while mixing on low then add the vanilla. Beat until you have an even, fluffy consistency.⁠
