Sue’s No-Guilt Vegan Berry Cake


holiday recipes to download
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder 
  • ½ teaspoon salt 
  • 1/3 cup nondairy yogurt (soy or coconut-plain) if you can’t find plain, flavored will work. 
  • 1¾ cup cake flour 
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar 
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla 
  • ½ cup vanilla nondairy milk (silk or whatever) 
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice 
  • ½ cup water 
  • 1 cup of mixed berries, frozen-thawed or fresh 
  • Powder sugar to sprinkle on cake for after it’s baked!

Berry Sauce

  • 12 ounce bag of frozen berries 
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch 
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the yogurt, vanilla, nondairy milk, lemon juice, and ½ cup of water. Carefully stir in the blueberries. Mix until just blended-don’t over mix. Pour into an 8x8 inch pan (I spray it with the closest to zero non-stick spray that I can find. Hey, ya gotta use something) and bake at 350 degrees F until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30-40 minutes. Remove and cool completely. Sprinkle with powder sugar if you want it. (I hate the term “if so desired”)

For sauce, bring berries, lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch to a boil on stove, lower heat and cook while stirring, until thickened. About 15-20 minutes. Be careful not to scorch. It will thicken upon sitting. Spoon still warm sauce over sliced cake.
