Orange & Cinnamon Cake (vegan)

I’ve been experimenting with vegan baking lately. It’s been much easier than I expected. The thought of making a cake without eggs and butter was quite scary, but it is really easy and they have been working out quite well! I made this one in a food processor to keep the mess under control. You could easily do it in a bowl by hand. Let me know if you try it out.

Equipment required 

Food processor 

1 x 20cm cake tin 

1 x measuring jug 

Baking paper 


Citrus Juicer 

Shopping list – made 1 cake and some leftover that I put into cupcake papers 

2 cups of GF self raising flour 

2 tsp cinnamon 

2/3 cup coconut palm sugar 

2 tbsp brown rice syrup or honey for non true vegan 

2 tsp bi carb 

1 tsp baking powder 

1/4 tsp salt 

3/4 cup coconut oil (more for greasing) 

1.5 cups oat milk

2 tsp Apple cider vinegar

Zest 1 large orange 

Juice 1 large orange  

2 tsp vanilla 

Method to the madness 

Preheat the oven to 160C fan 

Line the baking tray with paper and grease around the sides with coconut oil 

Measure out the ‘milk’ into the measuring jug and add the vinegar to the milk, set aside 

Place all the dry ingredients into the large bowl of the processor with the blade already attached  

Add all the wet ingredients, including ‘milk’ to the processor bowl and whizz until all combined (about 30 seconds) 

Pour out the mixture into the tin and bake for approx 35-40 minutes until the middle is cooked through 

Remove the cake from the oven and leave it to cool for 5 minutes in the tin before removing and placing on a rack to cool 

I sprinkled the cake with icing sugar as I was running low on time. It would be fab to decorate it with some melted dark chocolate
