Vegan Vanilla Nutty Cake is a delicious, soft spongy cake that 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 that 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 butterscotch…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.
