I'm making a vegan cake at some point today and I just want to check qualities etc. I assume that there is no rise as there's no egg in it, so the rough height that I want the cake, needs to be the same as the amount of batter that I put in the cake tin?
The person who's cake I'm making has given me a recipe, so hopefully it'll be OK. No sign of bicarbonate or vinegar in it though. It's just baking powder and veg oil. I'm guessing that does the rising.
The baking powder makes it rise so you do need to allow room to rise in the pan otherwise it'll overflow. I'm guessing you already have a recipe but sharing this one for vegan lemon drizzle anyway because it's the only vegan cake recipe I've used that gives that light fluffy texture of normal cake ethicalchef.co.uk/recipe/vegan-lemon-cake/
