Golden Bundt Cake

by Alice Zaslavsky, from In Praise of Veg

Beautiful Bundt aka the Vegetable Cake 🍰 ⠀

To quote directly from the recipe “It doesn’t taste like a vegetable cake?” is spot on. ⠀

We shared this cake and played the guessing game. You know the one where you know the answer, the players don’t and just get frustrated from having to play along and guess? That one. Today’s version of the game is “guess what this cake is made from?” The most creative answer goes to the player who said aquafaba. If you’re playing along, the correct answer is yellow patty pan squash. Yup, squash. A vegetable that has literally never had a start in my kitchen and no one is more surprised than me that I had a crack at this recipe. And like all the previous ‘In Praise of Veg’ recipes, this was an absolute winner! ⠀

🌱 Vegan substitutions were easy for this recipe: ⠀

🧈 BUTTER @nuttelexspread Buttery is my every day and cooking butter. I don’t know if it’s unsalted or not 🤷‍♀️ Used it anyway. ⠀

🍶BUTTERMILK I used @vitasoy_aus_nz Soy Milky, which is my every day milk.⠀

🥚EGGS I used 4 teaspoons of @orgranfoods No Egg Egg Replacer with 8 tablespoons of water.⠀

Notes

This was probably the fifth or sixth recipe I’d made from In Praise of Veg. So, I had come to learn that no ingredient should be considered a surprise ingredient in any bake. I have never, literally never, cooked patty pan squash before, such was my repulsion to this vegetable. No-one was more surprised than me to learn this cake was delicious and has been requested from friends and family as my bring-along to gatherings. Try it, you won’t be disappointed.
