cherry and almond cake

Vegan . They’re not everyone’s idea of a good time. Mostly this is because, instead of embracing the differences inherent in a dairy and egg-free , vegan bakers attempt to replicate a traditional sponge to prove vegan are just like normal . And it doesn’t really work. A light, fluffy, butter and egg-free sponge is a mythical beast that is yet to be captured.

But if you accept that a vegan cake will be dense and close-textured, and you don’t make it with wholemeal flour (why would you do that to a cake? Do you hate joy?), then a moist, fudgy bake that tastes like the filling in a cherry bakewell tart can be yours. For the recipe, click here.

    I can’t believe anything with “vegan” in the title could look so delicious. Gotta love anything with cherries.

  2. Looks good… I spent ages formulating an awesome vegan chocolate cake a little while ago. Very tasty if you don’t really think of it as a cake πŸ˜‰

    @Greedy Diva Cherries make everything 100 times better, even vegan cake (and I think this is a nice vegan cake).

    @Miss Whiplash Vegan chocolate cake is next on my list of vegan cakes. And they do work a bit better if you stop thinking about sponges and play up to their strengths!

  5. Delicious, I’m going to try this recipe on the weekend!

    Made this cake a while ago and was delicious – didn’t print out the recipe though and now the link doesn’t seem to work (just takes me to the HuffPo lifestyle front page…) – any chance you could repost the link? Thanks!

    Do you have the recipe, as they have removed it from that website. I used to make this cake and loved it but never wrote the recipe down πŸ™

  9. catherine says:

    Same as Alex. This looks perfect but the recipe is no longer avaiable. Could you e-mail it to me please?

  10. Sophie says:

    I’d love the missing recipe too! (Maybe you could re-post it as well, for future aspiring bakers?)
