3.7 (3 reviews)

8 Tbsp. unsalted vegan margarine
1/2 cup sugar
Egg Replacer equivalent to 1 egg (try Ener-G brand)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup soy milk

• Preheat the oven to 350°F. Rub the bottom and sides of an 8-inch round cake pan with 2 Tbsp. of the margarine.
• Using an electric mixer, cream the remaining 6 Tbsp. of margarine with the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg replacer and vanilla and beat until well combined.
• In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture to the margarine mixture in three batches, alternating with the soy milk, until well combined.
• Pour into the cake pan. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the center of the oven, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
