Vegan Pound Cake

All the pound cake goodness with only plant-based ingredients! This recipe is so light and delicious you can serve it as dessert or as a tea time treat!


– 2 tbsp of flax meal – 6 tbsp of water – 1/2 C of vegan butter – 1 C of granulated sugar – 1 3/4 C of all-purpose flour – 2 1/2 tsp of baking powder – 1/2 tsp of salt – 1 tbsp of finely grated lemon zest – 1 tbsp of lemon juice – 3/4 C of Silk heavy whipping cream

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a loaf pan. In a small bowl, beat together the flaxseed meal and water for 1 minute. Place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.

In a large bowl, beat together the vegan butter and sugar using an electric mixer. Sift in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add in the flax meal mixture, lemon zest, lemon juice, Silk heavy whipping cream, and mix thoroughly until well-combined. Try not to overmix, though.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 1 hour. Test by sticking a toothpick in the middle of the loaf. If the toothpick comes out dry, the loaf is done.

Allow the loaf to cool in the loaf pan for 30 minutes and then on a cooling rack until it’s completely cool. (It needs to cool completely to firm up for easy slicing.)
