Vegan Cranberry Bundt Cake

vegan cranberry bundt cake

Vegan cranberry bundt cake seemed like as good a place to start using this bouncy fruit as any because bundt cakes with these bouncy bright jewels so Vegan Cranberry Bundt Cake made sense in trying to incorporate more dairy free options into my diet with the vast amount of information out there that it’s not great for the environment and I know I don’t need to consume as much as I do.

The closest I’ve come to eating fresh cranberry’s is at a New Years Eve spent on a cranberry farm in the countryside outside Vancouver a decade ago. As you can imagine it was dark and not much interest shown in what they farmed so all these years later when I spotted fresh cranberries it made sense to grab them whilst in season.

Being a little uneasy with this fruit I’ve not had much beyond juice and some snacks of them dried, it became clear that cranberries and orange cake are a go to and so my buttermilk was made with orange juice instead of the regular lemon.

The punchy taste of cranberries in a cake would make one think that a lot of sugar is needed, but this cake works exactly as found in this recipe and as a big sweet tooth owner, one piece just doesn’t do so another piece has to be cut at each serving.

Vegan Cranberry Bundt Cake Notes

Making vegan buttermilk is the same as regularly buttermilk in that you add acidic juice to milk until it begins to curdle when you stir them together. The warmth of orange works particularly well in this cake, however, you will need at least half the juice of a large orange to make the buttermilk.

It’s best to start at 150 milliliters of vegan milk and add juice to the milk, stirring until it begins to curdle. If it curdles before you reach the desired amount needed for this cake, add a little more milk and a small amount more of orange juice until it resembles buttermilk and is 230 milliliters of liquid necessary.

Welcome to Roamingtaste

Hey there and welcome! Created in 2012 and as the name suggests this website was created to capture some of the foreign dishes I had discovered on my travels at a time when I needed to stay still for a while.

 

You will likely find dishes you might not have heard of or eaten on your own adventures and most require ingredients you likely already have and are unfussy because foreign food doesn't need to be complicated.
