Top 3 Best Vegan Cake Recipes

Embracing a vegan lifestyle doesn't mean saying goodbye to your favorite indulgences. If you have a sweet tooth and a passion for plant-based living, you're in for a treat! We've scoured the culinary landscape to bring you the crème de la crème of vegan cake recipes. From moist and tender layers to luscious frostings, these creations will satisfy your cravings and leave you craving for more. 

When it comes to making a cake that tastes familiar, it can become quite a grueling process. Vegan ingredients react differently to the baking process than those that are not vegan. 

When eggs are removed from the equation, the cake is more likely to sink. However, this issue can be resolved through trial and error. It's important not to consider the first failure as a loss. Sometimes, the batter may be too thin or the oven may be too hot.
On the other hand, if your cake is not rising, it could be due to the egg replacer you've used or over-mixing the batter. Over-mixing leads to the formation of more gluten, resulting in a dense cake that doesn't rise. But remember, part of baking is discovering what works and what doesn't through personal experience.
Ultimately, the goal is for the cake to taste good, and frosting can greatly enhance the appearance of a sunken cake.
To satisfy your cravings, we have curated three incredible vegan cake recipes for you to try. These recipes are sure to impress and fulfill your desire for delicious treats.

How do you store a Vegan Cake?

The answer is simple: treat a vegan cake the same way you would a non-vegan cake.
To maintain moisture in the cake, wrap it in cling film after it has been cooked and cooled. This will help seal in the moisture and keep the cake fresh for longer. If the cake is frosted, it is best to store it in a box or cover it with a dome.
When storing the cake, freezing is preferable to refrigeration. Freezing creates tiny ice particles in the cake that will melt upon defrosting, preserving its moisture. On the other hand, the circulating air in the fridge can gradually dry out the cake.
If fridge or freezer space is limited, you can simply use cling film to cover the cut sides of the cake.
