Vegan White Cake Recipe with Lower Sugar and Gluten Free Options 🍰


β€’ 2 β…” cups Organic All Purpose Flour (330g) or you can experiment with gluten- free flours substitutes.

β€’ 1 1/4 cups Organic White Granulated Sugar (300g) OR you can experiment with using applesauce instead, at a 1 to one ratio. So 1 ΒΌ cups applesauce. You may find that you need to adjust this amount. You could also use the same amount of coconut sugar if you are ok with the cake being a caramel color .

β€’ 3 teaspoons Aluminum-Free Baking Powder

β€’ ΒΎ teaspoon Salt (see my salt guide).

β€’ 1 Β½ cups Almond Milk (360ml)

β€’ Β½ cup (120ml) Coconut Oil, melted

β€’ 2 teaspoons Vanilla or other extract


β€’ Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and add the white sugar (if using it), baking powder and salt and mix together.

β€’ Preheat the oven to 350Β°F (180Β°C) and grease two 8-inch cake pins with coconut oil. Set aside.

β€’ Add the applesauce (if using as a sugar substitute) almond milk, oil and vanilla extract and whisk in with a hand whisk until just combined. Don’t overmix.

β€’ Divide the cake batter evenly between the two prepared cake pans and place into the oven to bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of one of the cakes comes out clean.

β€’ Allow the cakes to cool for a few minutes and then transfer them to a wire cooling rack and let them cool completely before frosting.
