Pear and Blueberry Crush Cake


47124eac48d54387a10c840af3269a9bThis would be my second trial of a vegan cake and gladly enough it came out to be equally tempting. You see, I am in a state of OCD now (Obsessive Cake Disorder)

So, this wasn’t really a planned recipe and so I can take the credit to me and my imaginations. I had some pears and blueberry crush in my pantry and I was in the spirit of making something that might sound like a nourishing cake.  Well, honestly I do not know if that makes sense but however for cake lovers anything would make quite enough sense and if its the Vegan version why to restrict yourself for making something more delectable than ever expected.

Here is my ingredient list:

  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup blueberry crush
  • 1 cup of pears ( I have chopped the pears and boiled them in water with about a tsp of sugar to get rid of any sourness and acidity)
  • 1/2 cup of sugar (since the crush is already sweet however you may add more or less to suit your taste)
  • 1/2 cup of any vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup of lukewarm water
  • 2 tsp of white vinegar
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp of baking powder

Once the dry ingredients have been sifted well add the wet ingredients one by one to make a smooth and homogeneous mixture. I let the pears be in chunks to enjoy the mild crunchiness with every bite of this cake. Pour the batter in a greased tin and bake it in a preheated oven for 30 min at 180 degrees and the toothpick shall come out clean.

My tips:

  • Adding the mixture of the vinegar and the soda in the end helps you create air in the cake, making it fluffy and spongy.
  • you may also add in sifted flax seed powder mixture to bring in moistness and sponginess. As per the Vegan version tips, a tbsp of flax seed powder with 3 tbsps of warm water works like one egg. So for your cake 2tbsp of flax seed powder and 6 tbsp of lukewarm water is just the right math to do. 🙂

In the end when your cake is ready and cooled down you may added your whipped cream or like in my case simply choose to dust it with some icing sugar and enjoy every bite of this guilt free cake sipping your tea or coffee.

Simple! wasn’t it?
