The strawberry 'buttercream' icing in the pictured version also uses aquafaba and was created by Linda Julien at Geeky Cakes. Find that recipe here.
This recipe accompanies the V for Veg column One solution for all egg-free baking needs.
Notice that I used only one tablespoon of aquafaba, rather than trying to substitute the entire volume of what would be eggs in a non-vegan cake. It is enough to give the cake cohesion, without making it too moist and heavy.
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup unrefined sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
Scant 1/2 tsp salt
1-1/4 cup unsweetened plant milk
1/2 cup neutral-flavored oil (safflower, sunflower or canola)
1 tbsp aquafaba, unwhipped
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line the bottoms of two 6-inch or 8-inch layer pans with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, stir together all the dry ingredients, mixing well. In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing with a fork until well combined, but do not overmix, and use a spatula to be sure that all the flour in the bottom of the bowl gets incorporated. Pour immediately into the prepared pans, and bake for approximately 25-35 minutes until cake tests done.
