Whenever I want to put a quick and delicious cake together. I always turn to this recipe from Beth Kidder’s The Milk-Free Kitchen. There’s no dairy products used to make it; in fact, it’s completely vegan, using no eggs either. But moist and tasty? Yes indeed, and instantly loved by all who’ve eaten it. Enjoy!

Golden cake

1 1/4 cups flour

2/3 cup sugar

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup applesauce

1/3 cup canola oil

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

confectioner’s sugar, for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and grease either a 9″ round or and 8″ square pan.

Sift the flour, sugar, soda, and salt together. Mix the applesauce, oil, and vanilla in a bowl; add the dry ingredients and stir just until all of the flour is moistened. Spread the batter in the prepared pan.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until done. Sprinkle confectioner’s sugar over the top while the cake is still hot, or your favorite icing or glaze.
