Vegan Vanilla Nutty Cake is a delicious , soft spongy cake which has no dairy products . The Cake is highlighted with nuts and seeds .
Any kind of celebrations we cannot do without a cake . I normally do not make vegan cakes , but my bhabhi in Delhi is a pro with vegan cakes . My nephew is a vegan so she never makes anything to do with dairy . This is a cake she taught me while she was here for a short holiday .
This vegan cake is made with whole wheat flour , with very little oil and yet it is super soft . It had such a beautiful crumb , believe me the cake vanished within seconds . I wish all cakes would disappear like this one !
I was really happy with this cake as you have all the ingredients at home . You really do not have to go out to get ingredients ! A basic cake which can be tweaked as per your choice . Add the nuts as a topping or include them inside, they would taste wonderful. You could add tutti fruity for kids , add butter scotch…there are so many ways to change the flavor and make a totally new version.
This Vanilla Cake is my Day 2 post for Kid’s Delight – Srivalli’s Anniversary Party.
