YBD Vegan Vanilla Cake

Not all sugar is vegan. Make sure you buy sugar that has a vegan certification!

Yield: Makes 4, eight inch cakes

What do I need....

4 cups white sugar

6 cups all-purpose flour

3 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons salt

2 cups unsweetened soy or almond milk (you can use regular milk here as well)

2 cups water

2 tablespoons white vinegar

1 1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

How do I make this....

-Preheat oven to 350 F and spray pans with nonstick cooking spray.

-Using a stand mixer and whip attachment, combine sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in the mixer and turn on low speed. This will sift the ingredients.

-Add vinegar to the milk and set aside.

-Add vanilla to the oil.

-While the mixer is running on low, add the oil mixture, milk mixture, and half of the water.

-Mix until incorporated and no lumps are found.

-Add the last bit of water and blend until fully incorporated.

-Fill pans and bake for 30-45 minutes, checking the cakes at 30 minutes for doneness. When fully baked, a toothpick inserted into the cake should come out clean.

Confetti Cake

- follow all steps above

- when the batter is mixed and ready to pour into the pans, fold in 1 cup of sprinkles and mix until well distributed.

Today your vegan cake&buttercreme made my niece an even happyer Birthday-Lady.

So, you get your well deserved slice of cake - 🍰

Greetings from Switzerland.


I use this recipe every year for my two boys birthday. I always get loads of compliments and people going back for more cake. I even had someone who doesn’t like cake, go back for more of thiS. It is a very dense and heavy cake but we love it.

I made this vanilla vegan cake, and it was dark and heavy. Had the texture of cornbread almost. It tasted okay and I used very light vegetable oil for the oil, but it did not look vanilla on the outside at all. I use the chocolate recipe all of the time so I was super confused why this did not turn out - even made it twice to see if I did something wrong and they both turned out the same. :-(

I made this cake today and noticed that one of the layers collapsed quite a bit, and the others are starting to as they cool! Why!?!? I’ve made the chocolate one before and this didn’t happen. I checked it at 30 minutes like the recipe suggests, but now I’m thinking I shouldn’t have!

This was such a great delicious dessert! It made my tum tum grumble like water in a pot starting to boil before putting the pasta in😋
