This gluten free vegan vanilla cake recipe is THE recipe to have on hand if you have any kind of food allergy or intolerance, or if you follow a vegan lifestyle. With a fluffy, moist sponge cake (no egg substitutes!) and a delicious coconut cream frosting, this basic recipe can be modified to make other types of cake, as well (think coffee, or red velvet)… but this simple vegan vanilla cake version with summer berries is pretty spectacular on its own.
A cake with no eggs, no butter, and no wheat flour. Huh? Yes, we’re kinda removing the crucial bits that make a cake… a cake. And listen – I get your scepticism and your doubts. And if you’ve had a gluten free+vegan cake fail before, I feel your frustration too. But here’s the thing: even if you can’t eat gluten, eggs and/or dairy, you still deserve an epic kickass cake.
This dairy and gluten free tiramisu will change your life. At the very least, your dessert life. Because after years of not being able to eat the perfection that is tiramisu, this is changing – right here, right now. Easy to make, rich and delicious, this just may be your new favourite dessert.
But not just any old tiramisu – oh no, my dear friends. We’re talking tiramisu that you can eat even if you have a gluten or dairy intolerance. Tiramisu that doesn’t deprive you of any of the taste, texture or coffee-filled decadence – despite containing no gluten and no dairy.
This gluten free vegan chocolate cake will blow you away – with how it looks, how it tastes and how incredibly easy it is to prepare. No fuss, no weird fancy ingredients, only an hour of your time… and you’ve got yourself a decadent, gorgeous gluten free vegan cake. And the best thing: nobody could possibly guess that it contains no gluten, no eggs, no butter and no milk. Yes, it’s that good.
When it comes to vegan and/or gluten free baking, there’s this persistent belief that it’s the most complicated, difficult thing on the planet – borderline rocket science.
The thing is: people like to complicate… pretty much everything… pretty much all the time. (And please note that this is coming from the – self-proclaimed – queen of over-complicating things.) Yes, baking without gluten, eggs, butter and milk can be daunting. But once you step over that initial hurdle (that’s only in your head anyway), it’s a piece of cake. Really. Really really. Pinky promise.
This gluten free tiramisu cake is a celebration of the best chocolate + coffee dessert out there: the one and only tiramisu. With fluffy gluten free genoise sponge generously soaked with coffee and a super pretty ombre mascarpone buttercream frosting, this gluten free layer cake is every coffee lover’s dream.
So… I kinda love chocolate. Really really love chocolate.
