Vegan Mofo 2019: Cake / Veganising The Nordic Baking Book

I’ve only explored a couple of the recipes from the cake chapters. I’m still a little bit confused by the whole concept of coating the baking pan with breadcrumbs. But I put my fears behind me for a couple of simple bakes.

Kardemummakaka – Cardamon Cake

Veganised by replacing the butter with Naturli block, removing the egg and replacing the sour cream with Alpro yogurt (the extra liquid that the yogurt contains works to replace the egg as well as the sour cream).

Who can resist cardamon cake? Soft beautiful sponge with the beautiful fresh taste of cardamon and sprinkled with pearl sugar.

Mannagrynskaka – Semolina Sponge Cake

Veganised by swapping out the yogurt with Alpro and the butter with Naturli block.

Just looking at this picture makes me smile. It’s a beautiful summer cake with a brilliant texture from the semolina and the bright burst of raspberries. I think this one is going to go into my regular rotation.

That’s all from cakes, for now. Tomorrow is pastry!
