It’s week 2! As I explained in my post on why everyone should watch Bake Off’s vegan episode , it’s a common misconception that cake has to have butter and eggs to make it work. This is not true! So I’ve scoured the internet to find recipes that get as close as possible to each of the remaining contestants’ cake creations, to help you make cruelty-free versions of whatever you fancy from this week’s episode.
So, here we go with cake week, no eggs required.
Disclaimer: I have not tested any of these recipes, but if you do, please tag me in your photos on Instagram or Facebook.
Challenge 1 – Signature Bake
Terry – Rum & Raisin Traybake with dark chocolate ganache and candied walnuts
Ruby – Boozy black forest traybake (kirsch syrup, dark chocolate ganache, white chocolate drizzle, chocolate sponge)
I found: Vegan black forest cherry cake by Allison Duncan on Shape, with Happy Healthy Mama’s ganache again and to make the white chocolate drizzle simply melt dairy free white chocolate in a bain marie and drizzle it over your cake. Voila!
Technical challenge – Le Gateau Vert-Vert De Claude Monet.
I found: vegan pistachio cake from One Green Planet, vegan buttercream (add crushed pistachios and spinach colouring for a super-green colour) from The Spruce Eats.
Cake week done! Please let me know if you end up making any of these – tag me on Facebook or Instagram for a chance of a share.
