Would anyone like to share their vegan cake recipe successes?

I've got the urge all of a sudden to give it a go and haven't baked since school!

I've not made a vegan cake yet, but I have made these and they were incredible:

(They do need a lot lot longer in the oven than they say though!)

Also loved the empire biscuits.

Have also had success with fruity buns and ginger oat biscuits but don't have links to the recipes, so just let me know if you'd like me to type them out!

Will be following with interest for vegan cake recipes!

www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/uncategorised-recipes/jemma-s-vegan-vanilla-fudge-cupcakes/#4HqT6QPzpiPkRcxp.97. This recipe makes great cup cakes or a larger sponge. I use vanilla soy yoghurt which gives it a really nice taste and has a great sponge texture. Best vanilla sponge recipe I have found.

This raspberry chocolate cake is just brilliant. Bosh has loads of vegan recipes on their Facebook page, a lot of them are cakes.

I tend to use normal recipes and sub butter for vegan butter or coconut oil, and aquafaba for eggs

welldeclare I made the cakes in your recipe with vanilla soy yoghurt. They are absolutely gorgeous- lovely and moist. My non vegan kids and their mates have all enjoyed them. Despite me being a bit hmm about vegan buttercream it turned out really nice as well, with no complaints from those used to regular buttercream.

Utterly lazy and cheating way of doing it is a box of Betty Crocker cake mix. (Lemon, devils chocolate and red velvet are vegan from memory but please check) and a can of fizzy drink. It was so easy and tasted amazing! I did lemon with Sprite and a chocolate and cola ones.

Not made any vegan cakes yet but have done many a vegan cheesecake (using coconut cream) and vegan cookies (using chickpeas).

Watching this thread eagerly for ideas.

Any chance of sharing the cheesecake recipe please redheadlover?

Just seen your post dangermouse. This is the recipe I use most often - it's the first thing that comes up if you type 'easy vegan cheesecake recipe' into google!

This one isn't bad either:

ooh I've looked at that cheesecake recipe before but worried I'd screw it up and it would be awful. I'll give it a go grin
