Vegan Raspberry Banana Cake | Aromatic Vanilla Cake

You’ll assume that it being summer time and sizzling outdoors would deter me from heating up my oven to bake issues however it actually does not in any respect, as a result of once I get it into my head that I need to bake one thing I am going for it, sizzling kitchen in any respect.  I’m used to working in a sizzling kitchen anyway at work, so it is nonetheless barely cooler at dwelling!  I used to be craving cake final weekend, so I made a decision to make use of components that I had available and make a Vegan Raspberry Banana Cake!  Once I make desserts, I often do layer desserts, or cupcakes, however this time I made a decision to do only a easy one layer cake, as a result of I wished to make a banana cake with a raspberry jam swirl, and I did not assume it will maintain up as nicely in a layer cake sort cake. Plus, the final time I made a single layer cake was once I was in highschool making a boxed cake combine with pre-made frosting. It was about time I made one as an grownup, plus I do know not everybody needs to make a layer cake so this would be the excellent recipe to share with anybody who feels that means.

For the cake portion, I used one among my vanilla cake recipes modified with banana, which turned out very well as a result of it was moist and mushy however not too heavy.  Additionally due to the banana it occurs to have much less oil than it in any other case would.  It’s a actually easy batter that comes collectively quick nothing too fussy, however it does require beating it for a minute with an electrical mixer (or about 3 minutes in case you are whisking by hand). However that’s nothing in comparison with non-vegan cake recipes I used to make that made you separate the eggs and beat in two completely different bowls and fold in and so forth. In case you wished to make this cake gluten free, you can use Bob’s Crimson Mill gluten free all function baking flour, I’ve had good success previously with substituting this particular flour.  Additionally, when you want to make this with all function flour as an alternative of the entire wheat pastry, you’ll be able to swap that in when you want that.  I simply occur to love entire wheat pastry flour finest and it’s what I’ve available.

I made a raspberry jam swirl that I wished to ribbon all through the cake, and it turned out very well!  It was all jammy and gooey similar to I wished it!  I topped the cake off with a raspberry buttercream frosting, and it was so luscious and creamy!  In case you like your frosting slightly sweeter, you can add 1/2 cup extra powdered sugar, however I appreciated the sweetness degree at 2 1/2 cups.  I tinted it with freeze dried raspberry powder to make it a beautiful pink and provides it loads of raspberry taste.

I couldn’t wait to do that cake!  Once I lastly did it was so heavenly!  The banana cake mushy and candy, the jammy raspberry swirl the proper factor so as to add to it, and that luscious raspberry frosting to finish it!  This was a lot simpler to frost than a layer cake, so in case you are a bit intimidated by these and wish one thing a bit less complicated, give this Vegan Raspberry Banana Cake a strive! Or in fact in case you are simply craving cake, that may be a good purpose too!  No want to attend for a special day!
