Vegan Cake: 4 Sponge Cake Recipes Without Egg Or Milk

Find out 4 different recipes to make vegan sponge cakes, without egg or milk.
The vegan cake is not just a vegan pastry recipe. It's a perfect alternative for people with lactose intolerance.

 

If you follow a daily vegan lifestyle, you're quite likely to be looking for vegan options for traditional recipes, especially desserts and sweets. A good example is the traditional sponge cake, which is usually made not only with flour but also with egg, milk and even butter in some cases.

But did you know it is possible to make a vegan sponge cake and that it comes out as delicious and spongy as the non-vegan cake? In this article, we offer you 4 different options to make a delicious vegan cake without egg or milk. Try these 4 vegan cake recipes and enjoy.

Is it possible to make vegan cakes?

If you're as passionate about sweets as we are, especially those desserts that are not only natural but also healthy (and nutritious), it's quite possible that you've already made a few at home. Preparing our own sweets and desserts at home gives us a fascinating advantage: we can try to use, always or almost always, healthier ingredients.

But when we are vegan, or we follow a vegetarian diet, we often have to face certain drawbacks: how can we replace certain ingredients, which are of animal origin, and which are indispensable in the preparation of the recipe? This is the case, for example, of essential ingredients such as milk, eggs or butter; especially when we consider the possibility of making desserts such as sponge cakes, muffins, cupcakes, biscuits, pies, and cakes.

However, vegan cakes and other vegan desserts have other added advantages not only for vegans or vegetarians but for people with lactose intolerance (as they do not use milk) or people allergic to egg (as they do not use it either). 

1. Vegan sponge cake recipe

Although there are many easy recipes to make a delicious vegan cake, here we propose a basic option which is very easy to make. 

Ingredients:

  • 250 g of flour

  • 90 g of cornstarch

  • 5 g of yeast

  • 10 g of baking soda

  • 350 g of brown sugar

  • 460 ml of vegetable milk

  • 10 ml of apple vinegar 

  • 155 ml of sunflower oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC.

  2. Put the milk and apple vinegar in a large bowl and mix well. Set it aside.

  3. In another bowl, put the sunflower oil and the brown sugar, mixing it well so that both ingredients get integrated as best as possible. 

  4. In a large bowl, mix the remaining dry ingredients (cornstarch, baking soda, yeast and salt).

  5. Add the sunflower oil and brown sugar mixture to the milk and apple vinegar bowl. Now pour the liquid preparation into the bowl where we have integrated all the dry ingredients. Mix well with an electric mixer.

  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 180 ºC, or until the kitchen needle or knife comes out perfectly clean when inserted into the cake.

Vegan chocolate cake is a perfect option for those who have a sweet tooth.

2. Vegan chocolate cake recipe

What if we add some chocolate to our vegan cake? The result is even better if, apart from cocoa powder, we add dark chocolate (minimum 70%).

Ingredients:

  • 350 g of wheat flour

  • 200 g of brown sugar

  • 100 ml of olive oil

  • 200 ml of oat or rice milk

  • 1 sachet of baking powder

  • 50 g of sugar-free cocoa powder

  • Half a bar of dark chocolate

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC.

  2. In a large bowl sift the wheat flour and the baking powder. 

  3. In a bowl or mug add the olive oil and the sugar, and mix it with the electric mixer (the result will be better this way). When both ingredients are integrated, add half the flour and mix it all well. Then add the vegetable milk, and mix again, add the cocoa powder, the dark chocolate cut into pieces and the rest of the flour. 

  4. Mix with the electric mixer again until you have a homogeneous dough. 

  5. Grease a cake tin with a little vegetable margarine and sprinkle with a bit of flour (this will prevent the dough from sticking to the tin).

  6. Bake between 25 and 30 minutes, or until the kitchen needle or knife comes out perfectly clean when inserted into the cake.

3. Apple and cinnamon vegan cake recipe

We all know that apple combines perfectly well with spices like cinnamon. They're two ingredients that actually get along very well with each other. And, as we couldn't help it, we have included them in our vegan sponge cake, so the result is even better.

Ingredients:

  • 350 g of wheat flour

  • 200 g of brown sugar

  • 1 sachet of baking powder

  • 200 g of apple purée

  • 200 ml of oat or rice milk

  • 180 ml of sunflower oil

  • Ground cinnamon (to taste)

Directions:

  1. Although you can use precooked apple purée, we are going to learn how to make our own purée easily. Peal 3 red apples, cut them in many pieces and put them in a saucepan on the fire with half a glass of water. Cook over medium heat, stirring from time to time until the apples are softened and cooked. Finally, mash with a fork, until a purée is formed. Set aside to cool.

  2. Now preheat the oven to 180ºC.

  3. In a big bowl put the sunflower oil, the sugar and the apple purée once it has cooled down, and mix well, beat so all the ingredients are well integrated. 

  4. In another bowl sift the wheat flour and the baking powder. 

  5. Add half the flour and baking powder mixture to the oil, sugar and apple puree bowl. Beat a little and add the vegetable milk. Continue beating a little more and add the rest of the flour. Keep beating until you get a homogeneous dough. Add cinnamon to taste, and mix a bit more for the last time.

  6. Grease a cake tin with a little vegetable margarine and sprinkle with a bit of flour. Pour the dough in the tin and bake for 30 minutes approximately. Remember that the sponge cake will be ready when the kitchen needle or knife comes out perfectly clean when inserted into the cake.

We can make all sorts of vegan sponge cakes without milk and with all kind of fruits.
