I'm trying to eat mostly vegan lately---it just makes me feel good.
Please post any favorite recipes you might have.
I'd love to try them--!!!
I've made this one lots of time--but I don't make the icing:
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup natural sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup soymilk
8 chai tea bags
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup oil
Ener-G Egg Substitute for 1 egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Grease an 8” cake pan.
In a saucepan, put soymilk gently on low heat.
Add tea bags, and simmer 15 minutes, pressing tea bags gently to extract flavor.
Wring out tea bags into soymilk. Top up with more soy milk back to 3/4 cup. Put this flavored soymilk in fridge to cool.
In large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Combine remaining ingredients, including flavored soymilk, and add to flour mixture.
Beat for 2 minutes. If too stiff, add a bit more soy milk.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out dry.
Makes one 8" cake.
TIP: Bake this with another pan in the oven with just a bit of cold water, to keep the cake moist.
“Anything Goes” Icing
In a blender combine:
1/4 a cup of soy margarine
2 1/4 cups of powdered sugar
2 tbsp soy milk
and 1 tsp "flavouring" (i.e. vanilla, lemon extract, or concentrated chai tea)
Decorate the cake with the icing and stick cinnamon sticks in the corners and, through a sieve, sprinkle powdered sugar and a tiny bit of ground cloves.
