Today we read two cake picture books. Because who doesn’t LOVE cake?
I Really Want the Cake by Simon Philip and Lucia Gaggioti
The Bake-A-Cake Book by Marie Meijer and Charlotte Ramel
This recipe is from one of my all-time favourite cookbooks, How It All Vegan. This is the cake recipe that I make most often at home. It is very quick to whip up!
- 1 1/2 cups Flour
- 1 cup Dry Sweetener ( I use sugar)
- 4 TBS Cocoa or Carob Powder
- 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 TBS Vinegar
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 5 TBS Oil
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 cup Cold Water
With a hand mixer or a stand mixer, combine 7 Tbs vegan butter or margarine, 3 1/2 cups icing sugar, 3 to 5 Tbs milk alternative, a few drops of vanilla OR for chocolate icing, a few tablespoons of cocoa powder. You can add either a tiny bit more icing sugar or a tiny bit more milk until you get the perfect consistency. If making vanilla icing you can add food colouring to make it any colour you like.
