I have been away from my blog most of June as I was busy doing various catering jobs and cooking classes. Although I enjoy the various events I catered for, I'm happy to get this opportunity to create new recipes for you.
I know It is only a day before July 4th celebration but I had to share with you my Vegan Gluten-Free Cake, an American Flag Cake. It will be a hit at any event this summer. You can easily pile the blueberries and strawberries on top of the cake for a yummy summer berries cake.
How To Make Flag Cake
For my flag cake recipe, I combined all the dry ingredients in one bowl except the grounds flaxseeds. In another bowl, I mixed the liquid ingredients with the ground flaxseeds. Then I mix both wet and dry ingredients together until smooth and creamy.
Vegan Gluten-Free Cake is baked about 40 minutes in an oven set at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. I completely cool the cake, then I frosted it with a creamy cream cheese frosting. I used Trader Joe's vegan cream cheese, Earth Balance buttery spread, and organic powdered sugar. Keep frosting refrigerated until cake is ready.
Other vegan cream cheese brands are Tofutti and Kite Hill. For cakes, I love to use golden ground flaxseeds by Bob's Red Mills.
I baked the cake in a 9x13 pan.
Also please leave a star rating ;-)
