Hi sugar babies! This week we have a wonderful guest post all about VEGAN cake! This comes from Craig over at Cake Journal. Check it out below:
4 Vegan Cake Recipes No One Should Miss Out On!
Eating vegan isn’t the grass and water diet that most people envision. In fact, it offers a varied and colorful array of delicious recipes. While we have a ton of meal ideas we could focus on, with spring dawning, we decided to compile the 5 best vegan cake recipes that we’ve tried. We promise you’ll love them as much as we have! And FYI – not all of them involve baking!
- Lemon Blueberry
This amazing recipe is just, well, amazing. Its sweet and tangy taste and moist, delicate texture are sure to please! It also has an amazing lemon glaze to top it off, which really puts it over the top!. The recipe makes 8 slices, and as a healthy dose of fresh blueberries and lemon juice! There are also helpful replacements suggested, such as using vegan butter rather than coconut butter for a less “coconutty” flavor!
- Vanilla & Berries Naked Cake
Delicious and with a warm, moist texture, this recipe is a must for really any occasion. You can get a healthy helping of fresh berries – as it calls for 2 whole cups! It also utilizes warm and delicious oat milk. Something that we personally feel just doesn’t get enough love. It’s perfect for baking! This is also a great recipe to share with any skeptics that you may know!
- Chia Spice Frosted Vanilla
If you want a more sophisticated twist to your basic vanilla affair, try this. It’s made with much more beginner-friendly ingredients (AKA much easier to find than more specialized ingredients some recipes call for) and is as moist as any ‘standard’ baked treat. With a great base and an absolutely mind-blowing frosting, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn’t absolutely love this! The frosting bares special mention, as we all agreed that it was the most unique and sinfully delicious frosting we’d ever had!
- Raw German Chocolate
You may not have ever had treat quite like this before! Eating raw foods prepared as desserts and even vegan-friendly sushi can be a different experience. The creamy, crunchy texture isn’t quite what you may be used to, but it’s more than pleasant. The delicious flavors will transport you to a whole different universe. Proponents of the raw movement also say that you get quite a bit more out of your food when you eat it in its natural state, meaning that you won’t have to feel guilty over this chocolate treat!
