It can be difficult to find a good reliable cake recipe that
1. is going to turn out tasty,
2. Is going to raise well and look good
3. is Vegan! But good enough that non vegans wouldnt be able to tell.
I wanted a recipe that was simple enough to make and didn't have a load of fancy dancing ingredients requiring hiking through the Himalayas to acquire.
So here it is!!!
We have made this cake 4 times and it has been a success with everyone. Every. Single. Time!
From teenagers, to bbq meat eating Americans, to the scone eating English, vegans ...and my grandma and grandad (the fussiest of them all).
Simple ingredients. No fuss. Perfect every time. Bloody tasty!
