As one of the oldest form of desserts, there’s a long history behind baking cakes using flour, eggs, milk, nuts, and honey. Tons of varieties emerged from years and years of reinventing this staple dessert and for every vegan’s satisfaction, vegan cakes were invented. A major win, right? This means we don’t need to skip the dessert table during parties anymore. I know that a lot of you are excited about these recipes but first, let us share with you what vegan cake is.
What is Vegan Cake?
Baking the traditional cake involves dairy products such as eggs, milk, and butter- so, in order to make it dairy-free and vegan, all we need to do is replace such ingredients with vegan substitutes. Replacing such ingredients with its vegan counterpart is challenging but that doesn’t mean that it cannot be done and that you need to compromise the sweet taste of the cake. There are tons of vegan substitutes readily available in local groceries and all you have to do is do a bit of research to make sure it is exactly what you need. While vegan counterparts for milk and butter, such as almond milk and vegan butter, are readily available in every local market, choosing the best egg replacement is a bit tricky. Egg replacers have different cooking properties such as its leavening and structuring properties, which makes it a tad complicated to choose which one to best use in your recipes. However, with proper research, exploring which egg to use best for your cakes won’t be a problem.
