I love making these small cakes. I've also topped this cake with a simple powdered sugar icing.

Yield: 1 8-inch round cake

vanilla cake



1 cup non-dairy milk

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons cornstarch

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup canola oil

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract



Chocolate Ganache

~ or ~

1/2 cup powdered sugar + 1 tablespoon non-dairy milk + splash of vanilla



Preheat oven to 350°F and line bottom of 8-inch cake pan with parchment paper.

Whisk the milk and vinegar in a measuring cup and set aside a few minutes to curdle.

Put the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and whisk to mix up.

Beat together the milk mixture, oil, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Add in flour mixture. Mix until no large lumps remain.

Pour batter into pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool. Then frost.
