Recipe

Vegan Quinoa Cake

A sugar free and vegan cake!

Times

  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Cook Time : 25 min
  • Ready Time : 35 min

Servings

8 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cup flour
  • ½ cup quinoa flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt (I used sea salt)
  • 2/3 cup agave nectar
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • ¾ cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla (yep, it calls for lots of vanilla – I accidently used 2 tsp)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and 8 inch square pan.
2. Mix together flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
3. In a separate bowl, combine agave nectar, oil, milk, vanilla and vinegar.
4. Combine wet and dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.
5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before proceeding to make

Now, if you want, any old white cake will do. Boxed, store bought, your personal favorite recipe…. (Of course it won’t have quinoa in it, but seriously, who are we kidding. This dish isn’t about health!)

If you would prefer, use sugar and add 1/4 cup of milk.

  1. Dish may not be about healthy, but when I see quinoa I think gluten free for the grandson. What can I substitute for the flour to make it gf?

  2. i am no expert, but why no try with gluten free all-purpose flour?

  3. How can this be listed as “sugar free”?

    It may not contain refined cane or beet sugar as an ingredient however many of the ingredients contain significant amounts of short chain carbohydrates – sugars. These include flour, quinoa flour, agave nectar, almond milk, and apple cider.
