I’m getting married soon, and my mother is making the cake. Nobody in my family is vegan, but I say – why not have a vegan wedding cake? This vanilla cake recipe is the perfect vegan wedding cake recipe no matter which size or shape you decide to have. Just make the cakes a day or two in advance, refrigerate them, and there you go! I have a great recipe for vegan frosting on this site as well, but I’ll put a basic vegan butter cream frosting up for those of you who like to keep it traditional.
What you need:
2 C water
3/4 C sunflower or other light oil
2 T white vinegar
4 t vanilla
3-1/2 C sifted flour (I sift twice for a springy cake)
2 C sugar
1 t salt
2 t baking soda
vegetable cooking spray
Preheat over to 350 F, or 180 C. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together last four ingredients in another bowl and sift together well.
Add the dry mixture to the liquid and mix well with a hand mixer until its smooth and perfect with no lumps. Let stand 5 minutes.
Pour into baking pan after you’ve sprayed it. Do not worry about air bubbles, they will settle on their own..
Bake about 35-40 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean, the cake springs back, and tops are slightly golden.
Frost with your favorite icing for the perfect vegan wedding cake!
