  • Summary

    This amazing 8 ingredient cake has a wonderful, intense vanilla flavor, as a vanilla cake should. It is light and moist and incredibly easy to make.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups blanched almond flour (224 g, do not use regular almond meal (with the skins), it is not light enough and will not produce the same results, make sure to measure accurately 224 g. See NOTE below)
    • 1/2 cup potato starch (80 g, this is the exact starch that makes the cake so fluffy)
    • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt (2.4 g)
    • 2 teaspoons aluminum-free double-acting baking powder (9.6 g)
    • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (150 mL)
    • 1/2 cup applesauce
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar (7.5 mL)
    • 1 tablespoon real vanilla extract (15 mL)
    • 1/4 cup aquafaba (the liquid at the bottom of a chickpea can)
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • I topped this cake with my Ultimate Vegan Chocolate Ganache/Glaze Or you can make it with the Strawberry Frosting or my Chocolate Espresso Truffle Frosting!
    • Note: It is crucial to not sub these ingredients for best results. It's necessary to use blanched almond flour because it is what makes the cake so moist and light. DO NOT use Bob's Red Mill blanched almond flour for this cake. It is never finely ground enough and there is always little bits of almond still left and it doesn't produce as light, fluffy results. I highly recommend King Arthur Flour or Honeyville or if you are in Texas, use the HEB brand, it's perfect. Don't say I didn't warn you if you try subbing. ????
