The first time, I tried baking a vegan bake, it didn't come out well, was too dense to be called a cake. This was my second attempt, orange cranberry cake and was I satisfied, absolutely, it was the perfect cake, got the beautiful texture. Very simple to make, you can have it either as a simple tea cake or do some frosting and have it as a delicious dessert, whichever way, you'll be completely satisfied..
Need To Have
- All Purpose Flour - 1 + 1/4 cup
- Sugar - 1/2 cup
- Dried Cranberries - 1/4 cup
- Fresh Orange Juice - 3/4 cup
- Oil - 1/4 cup
- Baking Soda - 1 teaspoon
- Baking Powder - 1 teaspoon
- Vanilla Extract - 1/2 teaspoon
- Salt - 1/8 teaspoon
Preheat the oven to 350F. Sift the flour with the baking powder and baking soda. Mix the cranberries with a little amount of the sifted flour ( so that they do not sink to the bottom of the cake while baking). Beat the orange juice, oil, vanilla extract and the sugar, to this add the salt and the sifted flour ( a little at a time) and mix well. Finally fold in the cranberries. Pour into a greased baking dish and bake it for 25 minutes. Cool and remove the cake. I used a square pan, sliced the cake and dusted some confectioners sugar on top.

Oven temperatures vary and also depending on the baking pan the baking time could vary, so keep an eye.
Cool the cake well before removing (I removed it before it cooled completely and a little bit of the cake(in the center) stuck to the pan.
You can place a paper stencil in the center of the cake and then dust the sugar to make it a little more prettier.
