Vegan Coconut Cake

A scrumptious coconut fix for your sweet cravings

Coconut is a family favorite for dessert in my house. My daughter and I were craving something sweet, a dessert that we would all love. I looked inside the pantry searching for ingredients to make a quick desert. I found flour and coconut. That’s all I needed to spark a new recipe. I decided to make coconut cake.

    Can I use 1/4 cup applesauce or mashed banana in place of one ener-g egg replacer? Thanks for sharing this recipe.

      Hello Shazia,

      Yes. One ripened, mashed banana or a tablespoon of applesauce can be substituted for each egg. I haven’t tried applesauce, but if you do, let me know how it turns out. 🙂

    You list baking powder in the ingredients but never say when to add it so I made my cake and left it out!

      Hello Lynne,

      The baking powder should be added in at the same time as the flour. I must have left it out of the directions by accident. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. 🙂
