Recipe: Vegan Blueberry Cake
Another vegan-ized recipe that turned out ridiculously scrumptious.
Adapted from 101 Cookbooks.
What you need:
*1 cup plus 2 tbsp. white flour
*1 cup plus 2 tbsp. whole wheat flour
*2 teaspoons baking powder
*1 teaspoon baking soda
*1 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
*1 teaspoon cider vinegar
*10 tablespoons soy milk (divided)
*1 cup unsulphered molasses
*2 small mashed bananas
*5 tablespoons applesauce
*1 tbsp. vegetable oil
*3 cups blueberries, frozen (plus extras for serving if desired)
*1 teaspoon flour
*powdered sugar for serving if desired
What you do:
Preheat your oven to 350F degrees. Oil and flour a 9-inch round cake pan (or equivalent).
In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a small bowl whisk together the cider vinegar with 6 tablespoons of the soy milk. In another bowl whisk the molasses with the remaining 4 tablespoons of soy milk. Whisk the cider vinegar mixture into the molasses mixture, then whisk in the banana.
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and stir until just barely combined. Stir in the applesauce and oil. Toss the blueberries with 1 teaspoon of flour and fold them into the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about thirty minutes or until a toothpick poked into the center comes out clean. Let cool for a few minutes and then serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.
