Orange Drizzle Cake (Vegan)

Orange Drizzle Cake (Vegan)

This recipe for an Orange Drizzle Cake (Vegan) is the perfect accompaniment to a relaxing Sunday spent reading and listening to music. The zesty orange flavours pair perfectly with the fluffy sponge cake.

Orange Drizzle Cake (Vegan)

You've heard all about Lemon Drizzle Cake (I even have a recipe for one!) but Orange Drizzle Cake is just as tasty and makes a nice change from the standard loaf cake. I've recently discovered that adding a tablespoon of dairy free yogurt to my vegan cake recipes really helps make the batter stick together well and prevents a crumbly cake, so make sure you don't skip this step!

Orange Drizzle Cake (Vegan)


Total time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Yield: 1 Loaf Cake
Ingredients
  • 100g Dairy Free Butter
  • 200g Caster Sugar
  • 275g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Orange (Zest)
  • 1 Orange (Juice)
  • 125ml Dairy Free Milk
  • 1 Tbsp Dairy Free Yogurt (I use coconut yogurt)
  • 175g Icing Sugar
  • 1 Orange (Juice)
  • 1 Orange (Zest)
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180˚c. Line a loaf tin.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar until soft, then fold in the flour and baking powder.
  3. Stir in the orange zest and juice, then slowly add the milk and yogurt until a smooth batter is made. (Note - you made need a little extra milk, just add it gradually until a nice smooth batter is formed)
  4. Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake for 30-40 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the cake comes out clean.
  5. Allow the cake to cook in the tin for 15 minutes, then transfer to cool completely on a cooling rack.
  6. Once fully cooled, prepare the icing by mixing together the icing sugar and half the juice of an orange.
  7. Begin by pricking the cake with a toothpick, then pour over the juice of half an orange.
  8. Spoon the icing on top of the cake, spreading to cover the whole cake.
  9. Sprinkle on the orange zest, then leave the icing to set.
