Tips for preparing vegan pound cake
Fold, Don’t Beat
You can whisk the ingredients together lightly, but avoid beating the ingredients. To make sure that the cake comes out fluffy, fold in the ingredients gently until they are thoroughly combined.
Keeping it Fresh
The vegan pound cake can be stored at room temperature for up to 5 days. To keep it moist, wrap it in saran wrap or store it in a closed container.
Serving variations for Pound Cake
The pound cake can either be sprinkled with powdered sugar or topped with icing or glaze.
To make a simple glaze, whisk together one cup of confectioners’ sugar and one tablespoon of dairy-free milk. You might also add a drop or two of flavour extracts, such as lemon or orange. You have your icing ready!
Serve With Fruit & Cream
The cake tastes great on its own, but you can also serve it with fresh fruit and dairy-free whipped cream.
How long should you beat a pound cake?
If you must use an electric mixer, then mix the ingredients on medium-high to high for 3–7 minutes, but when combining the liquid ingredients with the dry ingredients, use low to medium-low.
If you want your pound cake to be fluffier, then fold in the ingredients, avoid using an electric mixer at all.
