Vegan Gluten-Free Flag Cake easy to prepare using brown rice flour and almond flour for a light and fluffy vegan and gluten-free cake. Topped with creamy vegan cream cheese frosting with sweet and juicy summer blueberries and strawberries.

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.

Serve this 4th of July Flag Cake with my Easy To Make Cauliflower Wings and Vegan Potato Salad.

Step By Step Vegan Gluten-Free Cake

How To Make Vegan Gluten-Free 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 the 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 9×13 pan.
