Recently a friend of mine, who is vegan, asked me to make her an eggless raisin cake for her birthday. After a few trials, this is what I came up with. I love it! It is very moist, light, and sweet – all that you would expect from a cake.
You will need:
Preheat oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
4 cups Flour
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup veg. oil
2 cups orange juice
1 Orange, zested
1 cup golden raisins
¾ cup walnuts, ground
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
In a large, deep mixing bowl mix together the sugar and the oil.
In a separate bowl mix together the orange juice and the baking soda, then add it to the sugar mix; blend well.
Add and blend the rest of the ingredients into the mixture.
Pour the mixture into a cake pan, loaf pan, or a bundt pan!
Put it in the oven and bake for about 45 minutes to an hour. As a general rule, a cake is done when a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
