Are you looking for some Vegan Birthday Cake Recipes?
I’ve posted so many cake recipes on my blog, I’ve decided to compile a list of birthday-worthy sponge cakes. If you want to make a vegan birthday cake for any of your friends or family, there’s so much choice in this round-up:
- simple yet elegant fruit cakes such as strawberry, lemon and orange
- decadent chocolate cakes like chocolate mousse cake, Brooklyn blackout cake and chocolate truffle cake
- red velvet cake
- Boston cream pie (which is actually a cake!)
- coffee cake
- coconut cake!
All of these Vegan Birthday Cake Recipes are also refined sugar free and gluten-free (though you can still make them with normal flour if you want).
They’re all made using simple, easily accessible, plant-based ingredients and are all seriously indulgent, yet secretly healthy.
