A Vegan Marble Cake?

Onecakebaker is my handle because I have become obessed with making one cake, perfectly, and that is my mother-in-law’s marble cake. I tried, unsuccessfully, 9 times to bake her cake, until found out what I was doing something wrong, but more on that later.
I have this personal trainer who is a radical vegan, and it was her birthday yesterday. So when I told her I was baking a marble cake today to take pictures of cake for my blog, she asked for a vegan marble cake.

So cake number 12 was vegan. I used an emulsion of flaxseed meal and water as an egg substitute, and Nucoa margarine, and pareve Nestle’s Quick left over from Passover, soymilk instead of real milk, and voila.

The resulting cake rose beautifully in the oven, then fell to flatness. But it tasted fine, less sweet than the traditional marble cake, but with a fine nutty flavor and a very moist inside. There was a pretty good chocolate flavor. The batter was quite glutinous, so I just mixed the Nestle’s quick in instead of marbling.
