Vegan cherry Loaf Cake

Vegan Cherry Loaf Cake

You can make this Vegan Cherry Loaf Cake regardless of whether or not cherries are in season. Most supermarkets these days sell frozen fruit and cherries are often available in their selection. Sainsbury’s for one sell them in 450g bags, so you can take out what you need for this recipe and put the remaining back in the freezer for another dish.

This is a beautiful, perfectly sweet loaf cake, filled with soft cherries, with a firm crust and soft and light in the middle. You’ll get about 8 slices from it and it will keep in the fridge for a few days, so you can either share it out straight away or keep going back to it.

Defrost the cherries first, if you are using frozen, and drain off any excess liquid so that they are not too wet when you put them in the mix, which will affect the overall density of the cake. For fresh cherries you of course want to stone them first. I do this by pressing gently down on them with the flat of a knife until they split open. From there it is easy to remove the stone. You can also halve the cherries at this point. Frozen ones are usually stone-free.

I tend to cook this cake on a lower temperature and for longer, as it takes some time to cook all the way through. Using my method here, you’ll get a firm, thick crust with a soft cake inside, which is my personal preference.

Vegan Meringues

Vegan meringues are a lot easier to make than you might think.

I predominantly use canned chickpea water for my aquafaba dishes, simply because it’s easier to get hold
