Vegan Vanilla Cake

For the Vanilla Cake:

            1 and 3/4 cups (220g) All-Purpose Flour

            1 cup (200g) White Sugar

            1 tsp Baking Soda

            1/2 tsp Salt

            1 cup (240ml) Soy Milk (or other non-dairy milk)

            2 tsp Vanilla Extract

            1/3 cup (80ml) Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or sub canola oil or other vegetable oil)

            1 Tbsp White Vinegar (or sub Apple Cider Vinegar)

 

For The Vanilla Frosting:

            3 and 3/4 cups (450g) Powdered Sugar

            3 Tbsp (45g) Vegan Butter

            4 Tbsp Soy Milk (or other non-dairy milk)*

            2 tsp Vanilla Extract

 

For Decoration:

            Fresh Strawberries

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

 

- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C)

- Sift the flour into a mixing bowl.

- Add the sugar, baking soda and salt and mix together.

- Add the soy milk, vanilla, oil and vinegar and give it a quick whisk with a hand whisk until just combined.

- Grease two 7 inch round cake tins with coconut oil (or spray with non-stick spray) and cut parchment paper into circles to fit the bottoms.

- Divide the batter evenly between them.

- Bake for 30 minutes.

- Remove from the oven and using a toothpick, insert into the center of the cake. If it comes out clean then your cake is done.

- Move to a cooling rack to cool completely.

- Prepare your frosting.

- Add the powdered sugar, vegan butter, vanilla and half of the soy milk.

- Beginning on low speed, mix with an electric mixer, slowly increasing speed. Add the rest of the soy milk, only as much as needed until it is smooth and creamy. If your vegan butter has a higher water content, you may not need to use all of the soy milk.

- If your frosting is still a little thin, add more powdered sugar, if it’s a little thick, add more soy milk (a drop at a time). The consistency must be thick enough that it doesn’t slide off the cake, but thin enough to be spreadable.

- When your cake is completely cool, add frosting to the top of one of the layers.

- Add the second layer on top and frost it completely, using a knife to carefully frost the sides of the cake.

- Decorate with fresh strawberries and serve right away.

- If you’re not serving right away, then omit the strawberries or serve them on a plate alongside the cake, so it doesn’t get soggy.
