Easy Vegan White Cake

Easy Vegan White Cake
Recipes for Vegan Chocolate Cake abound - and many of them are exceptionally good and easy to make. But a recipe for a good Vegan White Cake that is made of simple grocery store ingredients is much harder to find. Which is too bad, given that my little girl is one of those who prefers Vanilla to Chocolate. And I prefer simple, basic recipes to exotic ingredients.

This recipe is adapted from one I found a few years back on Vegweb. Unfortunately, the original recipe can no longer be found there.

My version is ultra-simple to make, and uses basic grocery store ingredients. And, it tastes - well - like White Cake! : )

For a Children's Version of this recipe, check out this post! 

Before mixing Cake Batter, Oil an 8x8 square cake pan or a round cake pan. Line the bottom of the pan with waxed paper & oil the waxed paper. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Easy Vegan White Cake with Strawberries


Easy Vegan White Cake
2 1/2 Cups stuffedveggies Vegan Cookie & Cake Mix (recipe here)
1 Cup Water
1/3 Cup Light Flavored Oil (I use Sunflower)
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract or Flavoring *

Stir all ingredients together in one bowl. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for about 45 to 50 minutes - until done (toothpick inserted in center is clean, cake pulls away slightly from edges of pan, top center of cake springs back when touched - you know - the standard cake-doneness tests)


Remove pan from oven. Allow cake to cool about 5 minutes in pan. Flip cake upside down onto plate, remove pan & peel off wax paper carefully. Flip cake back right side up onto a wire rack, and allow to cool completely before frosting.

*Note: When I made this cake, I used traditional Vanilla (which is brown) and unbleached flour, so the cake is a little off-white. If you are going for a SNOW White Cake (say for a Wedding or Baptism) you will probably want to use clear vanilla flavoring & bleached flour. 

Frosted Easy Vegan White Cake


This one is best served with Vanilla frosting, and topped with Sweetened Strawberries (I like the frozen ones from the grocery that come packed with sugar - just thaw and serve). Of course, you can serve it in whatever way you like your cake.

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
