Is Cake Vegan?

by Fabian Jackson

2min read

Some afternoons are simply made for baking. Or failing that, eating cake that you didn’t make. But we’ve been wondering: is cake vegan?

If you’re a cake obsessive (like us) and want the full scoop on cakes and plant-based living, you’ve come to the right place. 

Cake

Cake is a general term that happily encompasses all types of baked, fried and even grilled sweet goods! Traditionally at the base of Western cakes, you’ll find some kind of flour, sugar, and a rising agent like bicarbonate of soda, a fat like butter or margarine and usually eggs as a thickening agent and emulsifier (something that keeps the mixture together).

Is Cake Vegan? 

So, according to the ingredients listed above, no, cakes aren’t traditionally vegan-friendly. However, there are so many vegan recipes and plant-based alternatives that no one needs to miss out on a hearty slice of something tasty. 

Looking for some tasty cake inspiration? Take a look at this post of our favourite cakes from around the world, complete with plant-based recipes on how to make them vegan.
