Easy Vegan (Sponge) Cake Base

Sometimes mixed with biscuit base, the spongy cake base is the foundation for many cakes and pies. Here is the simple recipe I use.


  • 360 g wheat flout
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp vanilla powder
  • 20 ml sugar
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 360 ml soy milk
  • 120 ml lemon juice
  • 180 ml oil

Makes: 2 round layers (20cm wide)


Cake base instructions

  1. Stirr soy milk and lemon juice together.

    Wait few minutes until it’s yoghurt like.

  2. In a seperate container stirr solids.

    Stirr flour, baking powder, sugars, salts together.

  3. Add oil and soy-lemon mix to solids.

    Mix lightly without stirring too much

  4. Line baking tins

    I recommend using two round baking tins (20cm wide). Divide the mass between the two forms.

  5. Bake at 175 Celsius for 30 minutes

Let me know if this worked out for you 🙂
