Prep Time:

Cook Time:

Servings:
Serves 8 - 10

Ingredients

  • 150g dairy-free spread, plus extra for the tins
  • 300ml dairy-free milk, we used oat milk
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 vanilla pod, seeds scraped
  • 300g self-raising flour
  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

For the filling

  • 100g dairy-free spread
  • 200g icing sugar, plus extra for dusting
  • 4 tbsp jam, we used strawberry

Instructions

  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Place a sheet of baking parchment in the bottom of two 20 cm sandwich tins, and spread a small amount of dairy-free spread to grease them.
  • Step 2: In a jug, pour the dairy-free milk and add the vinegar. Allow it to sit for a few minutes until it takes on a slightly lumpy texture. Into a large bowl, combine the rest of the cake 'ingredients', including the half of the vanilla seeds, then pour in the milk and vinegar mixture. Utilizing either electric beaters or a spoon, mix everything together until it's uniform.
  • Step 3: Separate the batter equally between the two pans, and place in the center of the oven. Bake for roughly 30-35 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center of the cakes comes out without any batter on it. Leave the cakes to cool in the pans until you can handle without burning yourself, then carefully turn out onto wire racks for complete cooling.
  • Step 4: As the cakes cool, mix together the dairy-free spread, icing sugar and remnant vanilla seeds to create the vegan buttercream. Make sure not to overmix the 'ingredients' if the spread you are using is especially soft; mix gently with a spoon or spatula instead. Should the mixture be too thick, try using an electric beater and add 1-2 tbsp of dairy-free milk to lighten it up.
  • Step 5: Spread a layer of jam over one of the cooled sponges before adding the buttercream and topping it with the other sponge. Dust the cake with icing sugar or caster sugar before cutting into slices.
