This is a light and fluffy vegan yellow cake recipe–it's not heavy, like some vegan cake recipes. A basic vegan yellow cake is good for children's birthdays or other special occasions.


Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Grease the bottom only of an 8-inch square pan.

  2. Cream the vegan margarine with an electric mixer until smooth.

  3. Add the sugar gradually.

  4. Add the egg replacer and mix well.

  5. Add the flour and baking powder and stir. If the mixture is too dry, add a few drops (up to 1/4 cup) of soy milk.

  6. Spread the mixture in the prepared pan and bake for 30 to 40 minutes.

  7. Allow the cake to cook and coool; then frost with your favorite vegan frosting if desired.
