This step-by-step instructable for vegan red velvet cake is a delicious alternative for the traditional red velvet cake. If you are lactose intolerant, vegan, or know anyone who is either, this recipe is up your alley. And while uncommon, this recipe is just about as difficult as any traditional cake.
Step 1: Ingredients & Utensils
• 1lb box of Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix
• 1 ¾ Cups of water
• ¾ vegetable or canola oil
• ¾ Cups of apple sauce
• Mixing bowel
• Measuring cups
• Non-stick pans (preferably round)
• Mixer (optional)
Step 2: Pour the Cake Mix Into Your Mixing Bowel
Once completely poured into the bowel, stir the mix to get out thick chunks before adding in other ingredients. Otherwise, they will be much harder to get out later on. Also, set your oven on at 350 for time to preheat.
Step 3: Add Ingeredients Into the Mix
First, add 1 ¾ cups of water.
Second, add ¾ cups of vegetable or canola oil.
Finally, add ¾ cups of apple sauce.
Mix all ingredients thoroughly until it is a smooth batter.
Step 4: Pour the Mixed Batter Into a Non-stick Pan
If a non-stick pan for baking is unavailable, use grease or butter to coat another pan. If your pan is too small for all of the batter, use another one (should fill a 3 inch pan about half way)
Step 5: Place the Pan(s) in Your Oven
Allow for around 30min of baking time. Check on the cake once 30min is up.
Step 6: Take the Cake Out of the Oven and Let Cool for 10min
Check to see if the cake is thoroughly baked by sticking a fork into it. The cake should be moist, but it shouldn't crumble or be smashed by the fork.
Step 7: Apply Frosting of Choice and Eat
This cake will be much more fragile than a normal cake, so be very gentle when applying the frosting if keeping the cake intact is important.
