  • Best Lenten cake ever! I used this recipe before but my print out did not show where I got it from.
    When I searched it with the same title, yours came up. Anyway, I will be sharing your recipe with my friends. Thank you.

    • So glad you enjoyed it!

      I’ve used it several times for baptism and chrismation cakes during lent. It’s great to have a vegan cake that actually holds it shape enough for decoration!

  • Excellent cake, I have used lemonade, or Orange Juice,or Limeade in place of the water adding lemon/ orange /or lime zest….The extracts can be altered as well…I’m sure other flavor juices would work as well..
