Homemade Recipe Vegetarian Cake Bakery Style
There are people who do not want any kind of liquor or rum or brandy in their cakes for Christmas occasion. So its pretty easy to make a vegan cake at home. Making a vegetarian cake is quite simple, as it only involves replacing the eggs with suitable egg substitutes. Here’s a general guide on how to make a vegetarian cake:
Vegan Cake Ingredients:
- Cake batter ingredients as per your chosen recipe
- Egg substitute: Options include flaxseed meal (1 tablespoon per egg), mashed ripe banana (1/2 banana per egg), applesauce (1/4 cup per egg), or chickpea flour (3 tablespoons per egg)
- Prepare the cake batter: Follow your chosen cake recipe’s instructions for mixing the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, etc.) and wet ingredients (butter, milk, vanilla extract, etc.).
- Add the egg substitute: Before adding the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, whisk your chosen egg substitute according to its specific instructions. For instance, flaxseed meal should be mixed with 3 tablespoons of water and let sit for 5 minutes before adding.
- Combine the batter: Once the egg substitute is ready, add it to the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. Then, gradually incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until a smooth batter forms.
- Bake the cake: Follow the baking instructions in your chosen recipe for temperature and time. Since the egg substitute may affect the baking time slightly, it’s recommended to start checking for doneness a few minutes earlier than indicated.
- Cool and frost: Once baked, let the cake cool completely before frosting it with your favorite frosting recipe. Enjoy your delicious vegetarian cake!
