Morning made simple

This vegan marble cake is as simple as it is rewarding to make.  The fun chocolate ribbons throughout the moist cake make it a great dish for entertaining or gifting.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup vegan butter, at room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups Unsweetened Vanilla Cashewmilk Yogurt
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons flax eggs*
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Prep

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a loaf tin with parchment paper.
  • *To make the flax eggs, mix 2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds with 5 tablespoons of water. Let this mixture thicken while working on the next steps.
  • In a medium-size bowl, mix the sugar, yogurt, vegan butter, and flax eggs. In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour, salt, and baking powder. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ones. Pour ⅓ of the batter into another bowl, add the cocoa powder, and stir until combined.
  • You can now start layering your marble cake. Pour half of the plain batter into the loaf tin, spreading it out evenly with a spatula. Then pour half of the cocoa batter into the loaf tin. Repeat with the remaining plain and cocoa batters. Zigzag a knife through the batter to create the marbling effect.
  • Bake for 60-70 minutes, until the loaf cracks in the middle, and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a rack before slicing the marble cake.
