The recipe is well-known so that everyone may know about it easily in this modern era. Overall, vanilla cake seems controversial since everyone has his or her own passion in cooking the cake.

It is important for us to prepare everything before cooking vegan vanilla cake on our kitchen. This recipe is quite easily to follow. Thus, we believe that you won’t have any trouble in preparing the ingredients and the kitchen tools. You have to notice that your vanilla cake will have some layers. In other words, we will cook taller vanilla cake today. Of course, you need three pans with 6-inch length. We are sure that not all of us have these kinds of pans. It would be better if you borrow from your neighbor or friend because the price is quite expensive.


Furthermore about the size of your vegan vanilla cake, we always suggest you to make your own or favorite size. In other words, you can make the size which you want. However, you have to know how to reach your favorite size. Based on our experience, rice milk will offer denser cake. It means that the size does not matter since our vanilla cake has proper density. If you want to have tasteful cake, you can add some sugar while cooking it. You need to know that your vanilla cake is still sweet on the side already. When you added more sugar, make sure you do not have problem with sweeter vanilla cake. Another option is leaving the sides without any frosting after all.


We have some tips for you before making vegan vanilla cake in your home. First of all, the temperature is the key. In other words, you have to always check the temperature of your open. In this case, we prefer to use oven thermometer. An oven without thermometer will cause some trouble for this recipe. Secondly, you must avoid mixing the ingredients especially for the dry one. It is necessary since the tough cake will belong to you if you did this carelessly. Last but not least, we suggest you not to peek inside the oven. For your information, opening the open may cause your vanilla cake falling after fifteen minutes of cooking.
