Treat yourself to a slice of this Vegan Victoria Sponge cake.

 

The Victoria sponge cake use to be my ultimate favourite cake and I never thought I would eat it again. However, there is a vegan alternative to everything. This recipe is made without any eggs and dairy, it’s filled with a generous layer of vegan vanilla buttercream and strawberry jam. Even non-vegans love this…

Ingredients:

  • 400g self-raising flour
  • 200g cane sugar/ maple syrup
  • 400ml rice/ coconut milk
  • 160ml olive oil/ other flavourless oil
  • 2tsp baking powder
  • 2tbsp vanilla extract

Lets get cooking…

  1. Grease two round cake tins and preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4.
  2. In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients – the flour, sugar and baking powder together.
  3. Add the wet ingredients milk, oil and vanilla, stirring until the mixture is just combined (don’t worry there may still be some small lumps).
  4. Tap the bowl on the work surface to stop the raising agents working too quickly. You will see the bubbles on the top of the cake pop.
  5. Spoon half of the cake mix into each of the tins, and tap the cake tins on the work surface to pop the bubbles again.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick, inserted into the middle of the cake, comes out clean.
  7. Cool in the tins for 15-20 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    I am collecting vegan recipes so I can feed my son’s girlfriend things we can all enjoy.

    My brother’s serious girlfriend is vegan so I’m definitely saving this for when we have a family get together that she’ll be attending.
