Recipe: Vegan Vanilla Sponge Cake


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
For Frosting (Optional):
  • Vegan buttercream or any preferred vegan frosting
For Garnish (Optional):
  • Fresh berries, mint leaves, or edible flowers


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans.
  2. Prepare Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, mix the almond milk, vegetable oil, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  5. Bake the Cake: Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool the Cake: Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Frosting (Optional): Once the cakes are completely cooled, spread a layer of vegan buttercream or your preferred frosting between the two layers and on top of the cake.
  8. Garnish (Optional): Garnish with fresh berries, mint leaves, or edible flowers for a decorative touch.
  9. Slice and Serve: Slice the Vegan Vanilla Sponge Cake and serve it as a delightful dessert for any occasion.
