This is the best vegan vanilla cake! A simple sponge cake is layered with luxurious vegan buttercream frosting. It’s elegant, classic, and unbeatable for birthday celebrations. With a birthday just behind me, I’ve had vegan cake on my mind more than usual! This vegan vanilla cake is perfect for birthdays. It’s also a classy, elegant layer cake that can be part of any celebration or special event. With the exception of whatever decorations you’re into, this cake is frill and fuss-free. Three layers…

These vegan carrot cake cupcakes have all of the goodness of traditional carrot cake, in an adorable, single-serve package! They’re the perfect treat for springtime, and they’re also great for birthdays and other celebrations. With Easter Sunday rolling around this weekend, I thought it might be a good time for vegan carrot cake. There’s no shortage of carrot cake on this blog. I have a pumpkin carrot cake, which I love to make in the fall. And then there’s my favorite vegan carrot…

The Best Vegan Gingerbread Cake

This is an unfussy, uncomplicated, delightful vegan gingerbread cake. It’s light and airy, not dense, and every bite is infused with ginger and cinnamon. I know it takes a little moxie to call a recipe “the best” anything. I also know that there’s really no “best” version of a dish. Especially a classic, beloved dish. Taste is so subjective. But sometimes it’s hard to contain one’s excitement about a recipe. And I really, really love this vegan gingerbread cake. So I can’t help…

Vegan Nantucket cranberry pie is inspired by Laurie Colwin’s classic recipe. It’s a cake, not a pie, and it couldn’t be easier to make! The perfect last minute holiday dessert. I chose a weird year to go all out with Thanksgiving cooking, but it’s happening. At the time of this writing, I’ve got two desserts in the works. I’ve also got green bean casserole, classic bread stuffing, mashed potatoes, and two types of cranberry sauce. Then there’s the Gardein holiday roast that I…

These vegan apple cider cupcakes are the perfect autumn treat! They’re sweetened with apple cider, spiced with cinnamon, and topped with rich swirls of vegan cream cheese frosting. For all my love of cake, I don’t make cupcakes nearly enough. I associate them with birthdays and special occasions, rather than everyday dessert cravings or snacking. But why? Cupcakes are just a different presentation of cake, and cake is something I make all of the time. From banana cake to peanut butter and jelly…

Easy Vegan Strawberry (Cake) Shortcake

I promised you a summery dessert today, and that’s what this is! An easy vegan strawberry shortcake with a cake base. There are two ways to make shortcake. One is with biscuits, which can be split to make a top and a bottom, and one is with an actual sponge cake. I like both approaches (it’s hard not to love shortcake however it shows up), but I’m a cake lover first and foremost. I was sort of surprised when I realized that I’d…

I woke up yesterday with a little more lightness in my heart than had been there earlier this week. And when I’m feeling lighthearted, my first instinct is to bake. There are so many things I might have posted on this Easter Sunday. Hot cross buns, which I’ve been wanting to make (and make well—my last batch was a total fail) for a while. Pie. A brunch dish, like French toast. Chocolate eggs. Any number of different cakes. But all I’ve been able…

I didn’t get to posting this delicious vegan chocolate bundt cake with chocolate ganache glaze last week, but I did get around to enjoying it. And I’ve got a few slices left in my freezer as a Valentine’s Day gift to myself 🙂 It’s no secret by now that I have a thing for cake. Even within the wonderful world of cake, I have favorites, and bundt cakes are high on the list. I love the domed and decorative shapes, the simplicity of…
