  • Combine the soy milk and lemon juice in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes to thicken and curdle. This is your vegan buttermilk.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the vegan buttermilk, vegetable oil, caster sugar and vanilla .
  • Add the almond flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt to the wet ingredients. Stir until everything is well combined, being careful not to over mix.

  • Remove the cake from the pan, and transfer it to a cooling rack. Allow the cake to cool before icing.

  • Once the cake has cooled, pour the orange glaze over the top. Sprinkle with slivered almonds (optional)

Notes

  1. I used a springform pan, but any eight inch cake pan will do. Be sure to let the cake cool fully before turning it out of the pan and glazing.
