Olive oil lemon sponge cake with dairy-free custard (low gluten, no wheat, low sugar, dairy-free, wholegrain)

I’ve only made a few sponge cakes in my life, and always with wheat flour, using a bit of whole-wheat and some white flour. I had also always used butter in the previous ones I had made (which is delicious too!), so I was excited to replicate this delicious cake in a dairy-free version so…
