Vegan Sponge Cake Recipes
Written by Mattie    
I am very new to veganism and this is the very first recipe I've used which doesn't contain dairy and it's great! I was worried that without eggs a cake just wouldn't be a cake, but it works and is delicious! I baked it for an extra ten minutes (35 min in total) as it wasn't done and it came out perfect. I frosted it with chocolate ganache made from 250ml coconut cream, 1x tbsp caster sugar, 1x tbsp cocoa powder, 1x tsp vanilla extract and 200g dark chocolate - melted together in a bain marie. This made enough to ice two cakes so I have frozen half the mixture for next time.
