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: This unique type of sugar has a delightful caramel flavor that's the perfect complement to the raspberries in this recipe.
- Butter: To make this recipe vegan-friendly, you'll need a non-dairy butter like Miyoko's, Earth Balance, or a similar brand.
- Milk: Any non-dairy milk will work for this recipe, but oat milk is a great option for its creamy texture.
- Coconut milk: To make coconut whipped cream it is necessary to chill the 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: Fresh raspberries are the star of this recipe, providing a burst of juicy sweetness and a beautiful pop of color. Be sure to use fresh raspberries for the best flavor, appearance, and texture.
TIPS FOR MAKING THIS RECIPE PERFECTLY
- One key step is to ensure that you chill the coconut milk overnight in the fridge to allow the fat to separate from the liquid. Be sure to use full-fat coconut milk for the best results.
- Additionally, it's important to chill the cake completely before adding the whipped coconut cream and raspberries to ensure that the dessert sets properly.
- And when it comes to raspberries, opt for fresh ones to get the perfect flavor and texture. Avoid using frozen raspberries, as they tend to lose their flavor when thawed.
By following these simple tips, you'll be able to create a delicious and impressive summer raspberry cake that's sure to be a hit at any gathering or as a sweet treat for yourself!
