How to Make Vegan Marble Cake

Alright, let me show you how to make this vegan marble cake!

STEP 1

Preheat your oven to 175°C. To a large bowl, add almond flour, rice flour, potato starch and baking powder and combine with a spatula.

STEP 2

Add in vegan vanilla yogurt, oat milk, coconut oil, maple syrup and lemon juice. Combine with a whisk or a spatula but don’t overmix the batter as it could ruin the fluffy texture of the cake.

STEP 3

Transfer about one third of the batter to another bowl. Melt the chocolate and add it to the bowl which contains one third of the batter. Mix until well-combined but don’t overmix.

STEP 4

Now it’s time to assemble the cake and create the marble effect!

Use a different tablespoon for the vanilla and the chocolate batter. Place two big spoonfuls of vanilla batter in the center of the cake pan. Then, place two big spoonfuls of chocolate batter in the center of the vanilla batter.

Continue alternating the two batters until there is no batter left. The batters will spread naturally and you will end up with a nice marble effect 🙂

STEP 5

Bake at 175°C for 40 to 55 minutes. The cooking time will largely depend on your oven. The cake is cooked when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let the cake cool completely on a cooling rack before removing it from the pan. Enjoy!!

What Are the Ingredients in This Marble Cake?

Here are the ingredients you will need to make this delicious zebra cake:

Almond flour: to make your own almond flour, simply place whole almonds in your high-speed blender and blend until you obtain a fine powder. Here is the high-speed blender I use (this is an affiliate link that will take you to Amazon).

Rice flour: you can substitute it with all-purpose flour if you’re not intolerant to gluten.

Potato starch

Maple syrup

Vegan vanilla yogurt: you can use soy yogurt or coconut yogurt.

Non-dairy milk: I’m using oat milk here but any plant milk should work.

Coconut oil

Dark chocolate

Baking powder

Lemon juice: this will help activate the baking powder and make your cake fluffier.

How to Store This Marble Cake?

I recommend that you do not refrigerate this cake (or any cake) as refrigerating it will dry it out.

Instead, simply store it in a sealed, airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.

You can also freeze it if you want to keep it for a longer period of time. When ready to eat, let it thaw at room temperature for a couple of hours.
