Cakes for Vegans

Sometimes it may feel that the egg free cake choice for a vegan audience is rather limited. It seems as though your diet restricts the amount of cakey goodness that you can enjoy on a daily basis. Never fear! There is a world of vegans out there, plenty of whom have a sweet tooth and have risen to the occasion to develop recipes to combat this very issue.

What are some of the best vegan cake alternatives and just how have they been adapted to be vegan-friendly?


Chocolate Banana Bread



Banana bread is a beloved classic of many a kitchen. So, it is no wonder that after a conversion to veganism you might still be on the hunt to enjoy this amazing classic. However, to keep up with the times a few tweaks may be in order to make this the best it can be. That addition? The delicious and ever-loved chocolate!

How do you achieve this vegan, chocolate heaven, alternative to the classic? Merely exchange the eggs for a mixture of apple cider vinegar, coconut oil and a mix of baking powder with self-rising flour. The rest, as they say, is history and you need only add the classic banana bread faire. To achieve the chocolatey goodness simply heap a generous amount of cocoa powder, a sure way to please any that eat it!



The basis of many grand designs in the cake world is the humble vanilla sponge. A majestic, fluffy, creation that can act as the canvas to even the most elaborate of icing mountains. Even for those people who hate chocolate (gasp) or just don’t like cake that much, vanilla appeals to a broad audience.

This is a pretty simple case of substitution. Vegan margarine and plant milk in the place of the non-vegan alternatives. The jam filling is the same for a traditional choice, if you want to top it with a buttercream icing then again it can be substituted with the vegan alternative. All in all, this is one of the easiest cake recipes to transform into a vegan delight with very little effort!
