A moist and flavorful vegan orange cake
Recipe type: Cake/Dessert
Serves: 12
  • Dry Ingredients
  • 1½ cups whole-wheat pastry flour or all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Wet Ingredients:
  • 1 cup minus 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 2 tbsp Cointreau liqueur (Meanure the Cointreau into a cup measure first and then top it off with OJ)
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. Mix together the wet ingredients and add to the dry. Stir until smooth.
  2. Pour into a greased and floured cake pan, preferably lined with wax or parchment paper which makes it easier to unmold the cake.
  3. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes, then slide a thin knife around the edges.
  5. Gently remove the cake from the pan and continue cooling on a rack.
  6. This cake is best by itself, but a dollop of whipped vegan cream does no harm, if you know what I mean :)
