I was skeptical but needed to make a vegan birthday cake. This was actually very good. I found the mixing of the batter in the pan a little challenging since it thickens so much, and I discourage trying to line the pan with parchment (as I did) because of the mixing process, but a very good recipe. I used yuzu vinegar from O Olive Oil which was an outstanding substitution.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Sift dry ingredients into 8" square or 9" round baking pan.
  3. Mix liquids (except vinegar) and whisk into dry.
  4. When batter is smooth, add vinegar and stir quickly, until it is evenly distributed.
  5. Put it in the oven, don't let it stand around (that has something to do with the vinegar) Bake for 25-30 minutes or longer until done.
  6. This cake is great served with soya cream or vegan ice cream.
