We had a fab time baking our #Veganuary Cakes at Yellow Arch Studios in Sheffield who hosted our bakers. We had 8 Vegan cakes to try. Lots of lattes & cups of tea to help us try them all & even take a slice each home. Everyone introduces themselves , their cake & what they learned baking it … plus tips for all.
Annes cake was a Lemon Tender Cake …from a Nigella recipe. Coconut milk , lemon zest & juice went into the cake. Topping was coconut milk yoghurt & vanilla essence plus icing sugar. Home made blueberry compote on top.
A delicious dairy free Bakewell Tart cake , made with ground almonds, almond milk, fresh raspberries & toasted almonds. Made by Michelle.
Clare cooked chocolate vegan cake form Blue Moon Cafe, Sheffields cookbook. Her friends renamed it Brownie cake as it tasted like brownie #yummy .
Karens cake was a moist chocolate effort. Both the cake batter & the frosting were made in a food processor, and both had a whole avocado blitzed in, instead of the butter & cream you would use in a non vegan cake. The batter had oil & hot soya milk whipped with cocoa too.
Dave ( of Poptastic Dave fame ) made a vegan chocolate cake. He started by adapting a Victoria Sponge, replacing eggs with avocado & half & half gluten free flour & ground rice/semolina. With 70% cocoa too.
Hilary made a Lemon Cake, with lots of fresh lemon juice & zest. She noticed that it took much longer to cook than her usual recipe.
Karen W made a Cranberry & Orange cake , with orange juice, soya milk & oil, flour & sugar. Fresh cranberries too. It too took ” ages ” to cook … and was still warm when we tried it #yummy
Sian made her first vegan Victoria Sponge cake with dairy free buttercream & fresh strawberries. The sponge had almond milk & oil instead of eggs. The recipe was in the Tesco food magazine.
