Delicious summer raspberry cake recipe that is vegan and gluten-free. This summer dessert recipe is easy to prepare and is perfect when you crave a fresh and healthy raspberry cake.
INGREDIENTS IN THIS SUMMER RASPBERRY CAKE
- Aquafaba: Aquafaba is a leftover chickpea liquid. Using liquid from white beans works as well. This is a vegan egg replacer.
- Flour: Oat and almond flour for a gluten-free cake batter.
- Coconut sugar: Coconut sugar has a kind of caramel flavor. The caramel flavor is what we are after in this recipe.
- Butter: Non-dairy butter like Miyoko´s, Earth Balance, or similar.
- Milk: Any non-dairy milk will work. I used oat milk.
- Coconut milk: To make coconut whipped cream it is necessary to chill coconut can overnight in the refrigerator to harden. The cream will separate from the liquid. The reason for this is that we are going to scoop the hardened coconut cream, and only use the cream to make whipped cream.
- Raspberry: Use fresh raspberries for better flavor, appearance, and texture.
TIPS FOR MAKING THIS RECIPE PERFECTLY
- One important step is to chill coconut milk overnight in the fridge. This is necessary for the fat to separate from the liquid. Use full-fat coconut milk for this.
- Chill the cake completely before adding whipped cream and raspberries.
- Use fresh raspberries for the right flavor and texture. Frozen raspberries lose their flavor when thawed.
