Vegan Orange and Poppyseed cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. Vegan and so good – I made two loaves and they were both eaten in record time. It’s full of flavour and has a great orange taste. The cream cheese frosting makes this! Toffuti is simply the best. I love this little picture below – a change from my normal quotes:
Orange Poppyseed Cake
2 cups self raising flour
1/4 cup vegan spread
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 cup soy milk
1/4 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/4 cup poppy seeds
1 teaspoon finely grated orange rind / zest
Cream Cheese Frosting
3 tablespoons vegan cream cheese
1 tablespoon vegan butter
1 tablespoon orange juice
1/2 cup icing sugar
What should I do now?
Combine the melted vegan spread and sugar in a bowl and mix. Add the rest of the ingredients (the poppy seeds and orange zest go in last) and combine – don’t over mix this! Bake for 30-40 minutes on 180 degrees celsius.
Allow to cool completely before frosting.
Frosting is simple – just mix everything together.
Top the cake with the frosting and enjoy.
Anything else I should know?
This also freezes well – it’s nut free so good for the school lunch box.
