How to Make Vegan Pound Cake

How to Make Vegan Pound Cake

Mar 31, 2020 BY: Ryan Tempfer

A fine crumb, buttery flavor, and moist interior make this pound cake impressive enough to fool any hardcore traditionalist. A zesty lemon glaze is the metaphorical cherry on top of this classic dessert.

Servings: One 10-inch Bundt cake   Time: 30 minutes   Difficulty: I Guess I'll Put on an Apron

Recipe by: No Eggs or Ham

Ingredients

 

Batter

  • 16 oz cake flour, sifted
  • 16 oz Melt Organic vegan butter
  • 16 oz vegan-friendly white sugar*
  • 16 oz VeganEgg (13.75 oz cold water + 2.25 oz VeganEgg powder by Follow Your Heart)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt

 

Lemon Glaze

  • 6.35 oz (1 ½ cups) powdered sugar*
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Zest from one lemon

 

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly butter a 10 inch nonstick bundt pan, dust it with cake flour to coat, and shake out any excess. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together VeganEgg powder with cold water until smooth. Set aside.

3. Sift cake powder into a large bowl or flexible cutting board (for easy pouring later on) and set aside for now.

4. Combine butter and sugar in the bowl of a standup mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl with an electric hand whisk. Start on medium-low speed until mixture comes together, then boost speed to high and cream until fluffy and light in color. Scrape down the sides with a spatula every minute or so; about 4 minutes in total.

5. Add VeganEgg into butter mixture in three batches, mixing each one in until smooth before adding the next. Once incorporated, scrape down the sides, add vanilla and salt, and beat on high for 2-3 minutes to incorporate more air.

6. Stop the mixer, add in 1/3 of the flour, turn speed to low until just incorporated, then boost to medium speed until mostly smooth. Repeat for remaining batches, scraping the sides after the third batch.

7. After you add the third batch, mix until just smooth (be sure not to over mix as to avoid gluten formation), then pour batter into prepped cake pan. Smooth out the top, place in oven, and bake until a toothpick comes out clean; 1 hr - 1 hr 15 min.

8. Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then use a paring knife to go around the edges of the cake to make sure it's not stuck to the pan. Invert cake onto a cooling rack and rest until completely cool; about 4 hours.

9. Assemble glaze by whisking together lemon juice, lemon zest, and powdered sugar until smooth, adding powdered sugar in three batches to ensure easy whisking.

10. Pour glaze over cake, slice, and enjoy! Store covered at room temperature for 3 days.

 

Notes

*Many bleached products such as white flour and sugar are processed using animal bone char, which obviously isn't vegan. However, some brands such as Sprouts label their products with the "certified vegan" stamp, ensuring it was produced without animal products.

*For powdered sugar, also check to ensure vegan friendliness. Pro tip: organic versions are always vegan.
