Let them (the vegans) eat cake !
also it's gluten free, and dairy free so let EVERYONE eat cake !
The thing about this cake is that it's delicious EVEN though its gluten free, dairy free, and vegan. The addition of the banana adds more moisture to it, but I also have made this recipe omitting the banana, and it comes out just as good.
Cake for everyone !
2 1/2 c gluten free flour (I always use this brand)
2 T cornstarch
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 c sugar
3/4 c oil
1 1/2 c oat milk
2 t apple cider vinegar
2 t vanilla
1 ea banana, smashed (note)
Grease cake pans with coconut oil (pans I use for small layer cakes)
Pre heat oven to 350*
Mix all ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl with a whisk until batter comes together
Pour into pan and bake 20 minutes or until done (note on baking times and temperatures here)
Variations : For chocolate cake add 1/2 c cocoa powder and omit banana
Vegan Vanilla Buttercream
12 oz butter vegan (I use this brand)
16 oz powdered sugar
2 t vanilla
Mix all together in mixer with paddle attachment
Let mix 4 minutes
Scrape down and mix for 1 minute more
When your recipe calls for banana, in bread or cakes, and you don't have any that are ripe; put the banana in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time. The banana will become instantly perfect for any recipe! You can also do this in the oven, place in at 350* and wait for the bananas to essentially 'roast' and turn brown, remove and add to your recipes!
