If I was allergic to eggs and dairy at a family dinner, I would hope there would be a Vegan dessert…and that is what I made happen. I am not vegan, or strictly vegetarian, but I enjoy the recipes when one is as easy and as good as THIS. I was naturally on Pinterest when I found the recipe…which also led to me making my own Kahlua so that I could complete it. It is spongy and delicious. In total I have made this cake 3 times, one lemon, one with too much Kahlua, and the third batch was perfect.
Should you attempt the recipe, please note that 1) You need AMERICAN baking soda, not German backpulver, you can find some at Galleria Kaufhof of all places, 2) there are multiple versions of this cake to make, but never skip on the flavoring…then it will taste pretzly due to the baking soda. But you can see how mine turned out below.
Drat! Almost forgot all about the icing. But its easy. Get vegan cookies, crumble them to dust in a food processor or blender, add only the thick creamy part of the coconut milk from the can to start, add any liquid to get the consistency you like, then blend a little more….and you’re done! Easy.
Let me know how it turns out. And check out my other pins on Pinterest.
