The basic recipe:
Bake at 375 for 30 min. in greased pan.
- 1 1/2 c. flour
- 1/2 c. oil (I use 1/4 plus water)
- 1 c. sugar (I like 1/2-3/4 c.)
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 scant cup soy/ricemilk/water (water works fine)
this is a small recipe.
I'd double it for 4 servings, triple it if your house likes cake!
(I've made 4 versions of this cake in the past two weeks for my
house, and each disappeared overnight!)
Sweet and Light Lemon Cake:
add 1/4-1/2 c. lemon juice instead of the water/ricemilk (that's
for a double or triple recipe)
add 2 c. OJ instead of water and cut back sugar (for a double recipe)
cut 1 or 2 apples into slices and lay them on top. you can sprinkle
with cinnamon and/or sugar if you'd like.
PLUMS actually wok really well like this - cut them in half...you
need about 10.
(again, this is for a double or triple recipe).
be sure to make this in a large round pan for the right look.
you may also want to use the full quantity of oil so that it's richer
(instead of eggs, you know).
I can't wait to impress my non-veggie friends with this.
Who says you can't make great vegan cake!!
