VEGAN CARDAMOM VANILLA CAKE



You may know I have talked about having a ridiculously expensive bottle of cardamom in my kitchen due to a last minute Thanksgiving ingredient mishap. So when I get the chance, I incorporate it into my recipes.


I made this for Easter dessert! This year there were no kids so it was perfect to make something a little elevated (but still so easy). We needed something easy to serve and a little refreshing. The cardamom adds a really nice subtle spiced flavor. The crumb is really moist and light. In my opinion, it is a perfect spring/summer dessert!


INGREDIENTS

(makes two 8x8 square pans)


1 ¾ cup Oat Milk

1 ½ tbs. Lemon Juice

3 ¼ cup All-Purpose Flour

2 ¼ cup Granulated Sugar

2 ¼ tsp. Baking Powder

1 ½ tsp. Baking Soda

1 ½ tsp. Cardamom

¾ tsp. Salt

1 cup Vegan Yogurt

3/4 cup Olive Oil

1 tbs. Vanilla Paste

¾ tsp. Vanilla Extract


INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease and line your pan(s).

  2. In a small bowl, begin by mixing the oat milk and lemon juice to make "buttermilk". Set aside while mixing other ingredients.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, granulated, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, and salt.

  4. Add the wet ingredients: yogurt, olive oil, vanilla paste, and vanilla extract.

  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

  6. Let completely cool, frost and serve!

I used my Honey Cream Cheese Frosting recipe for the top! It is not vegan but you can absolutely make it vegan by using vegan cream cheese.



I drizzled honey over my frosting and some chopped pecans.



I served by slicing into squares (like you would brownies)!
