Thread: I need a recipe for a *WOW* cake!

  1. #1

    Default I need a recipe for a *WOW* cake!

    Please help!

    We have a charity baking competition on Monday at work and I'm on a mission to prove that vegan cakes are as good as non-vegan cakes!

    We are having a blind taste test, so my cake needs to be "good", as opposed to "good for a vegan cake". Unfortunately I do find that with my current repertoire, they would probably taste better with butter, so I'm going to be at a disadvantage :-( Also they can be a little sensitive to not rising quite so much in the middle.

    I need a recipe with the quantity in weight, rather than cups, if poss.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    I know this recipe isn't by weight, and it is for cupcakes, not a cake, but perhaps this would do... these cupcakes are amazing and even my non-vegan husband thought they were the best he has ever tasted.

    Adapted from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World
    Makes about 22 cupcakes

    *Obv, use red dye #40 (derived from coal)

    Cake

    2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 cups sugar
    4 tablespoons cocoa powder
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    2/3 cup vegetable oil
    2 ounces red food coloring
    4 teaspoons vanilla extract

    • Add vinegar to soy milk, and set aside to curdle.
    • Sift flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
    • Add vegetable oil, food coloring, and vanilla extract to the curdled soy milk, and mix.
    • Pour liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix.

    Hi
    I tried this cake at a Vegan Fair last weekend and it was light fluffy and really lemony.
    There is wheat or G/F recipes on the following link
