Yummy, yummy, yummy! As you read Vegan Cakes, those three words crossed your mind, right? Well, let me assure you that just because the word ‘cakes’ has the word ‘vegan’ next to it, doesn’t mean that they aren’t just as delicious!
Many cake recipes these days are designed for those with gluten or dairy intolerance, and just about any cake recipe can have specific ingredients replaced and still produce a delicious cake.
So it’s your first time creating a tasty vegan cake and you’re nervous.
Is this thing going to turn out looking like a cake or is it going to look like a slightly puffed out pancake?
Is it really going to be tasty?
Or is it just going to taste like a cake-looking piece of cardboard?
Just because you are swapping your ingredients, it doesn’t mean that your cake will be a flop. It is going to look perfect and it is going to taste so yummy you’ll kick yourself for not trying it sooner.
The important rule of thumb is to make sure that you get the measurements right and in the beginning you might need to use a little trial and error, but once you become experienced and have the right ingredients in your pantry, you’ll have no problem adjusting and even creating your own delicious cakes.
So if you’re thinking about going vegan, or are in the process of making the transition, don’t fret, you can still make all of your favourite cake recipes, as well as adding some specially created vegan recipes which we guarantee you’ll love too!
For all of our chocolate lovers out there – and we guarantee you, we join you on this bandwagon; because what is cake if it isn’t chocolate? - We have some mouth watering chocolate cake recipes, including a mud cake to die for!
Our vegan cake recipes include all of your most loved cakes, and cheesecakes as well as cupcakes, and muffins!
The crème de la crème of cakes! And definitely our favourite. Most of these cakes use cocoa for their velvety chocolate flavour, so no need to chase up any vegan chocolate, although you could always shave some on as decoration!
There are two main types of cheesecake, a baked or a no bake cheesecake – we have a couple of both to keep you happy!
Firm silken tofu is the magic ingredient in a baked cheesecake, but you can also use vegan cream cheese and sour cream for an extra smooth finish.
Some of the best vegan cake recipes are the ones that use fruit and vegetables, like the trusted favourites of banana and carrot cake! VeganWise’s very own dough boy Jason has a fantabulous banana cake recipe that we all love…even our little doggies line up for a piece.
Okay, stop the bus! Who said vegan cupcakes?
Well, whoever it was has my undivided attention. Let me let you in on a little secret. These little pieces of gorgeousness wrapped in paper are my 'pièce de résistance'!
Cupcakes are simply heaven to me, especially the little bite-size ones. Whenever I make them I always find myself going back for more and when I’ve discovered how many I’ve had I have to promise myself to not have any more… at least tonight.
But truthfully these little beauties are great for any occasion.
Cupcakes fall into that category of the one thing you can take to a party and you can guarantee there will be none left. From children’s birthday parties to a little office birthday celebration, they are pure gold! And these days they form the majority of wedding cakes too. No mess, no fuss!
Now this can be a sore point to some of you who have just made the transition to a vegan diet. Everywhere you go they serve muffins. They are dressed to die for. What with all that melted chocolate staring at you….teasing you, begging you to eat it. I can understand your frustration. Fear not!
Until we have enough places making these magical vegan gems, you can get your muffin fix at home. We have the recipes tried and tested that are going to make you muffin happy.
