Vegan Pound Cake With Almond Glaze

Vegan Pound Cake With Almond Glaze Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes


For the Vegan Pound Cake:

1/2 cup Vegan Butter (112g)

1 cup White Granulated Sugar (200g)

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

2 cups All Purpose Flour (250g)

3 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 tsp Salt

1 cup Vegan Buttermilk (240ml) 1 Tbsp lemon juice + soy milk up to the 1 cup line

For the Almond Glaze Topping:

1 cup Powdered Sugar (120g)

1 and 1/2 Tbsp Soy Milk or other non-dairy milk

Few Drops Almond Extract


1Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C)

2Add the vegan butter and sugar to the bowl of an electric mixer and cream them together. Add the vanilla extract and mix in.

3Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and add the baking powder and salt and mix together and then add into the bowl with the vegan butter and sugar.

4Make your vegan buttermilk by adding 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice to a measuring jug and then pouring in soy milk up to the 1 cup (240ml) line and then stirring in so it curdles. You can also use almond milk if you prefer. Add to the other ingredients.

5Mix into a batter with a spoon. The batter will be thick. Mix in properly but be careful not to overmix.

6Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with non-stick spray and then line it with parchment paper. The best way to do this is to let the parchment paper hang over the sides so that when your cake is done you can just lift it out.

7Transfer your cake batter to the loaf pan and smooth it down.

8Place into the oven to bake for 60 minutes.

9At the 40 minute mark, bring out the cake and add foil to the top in a tent shape. So let the top be quite high (in a tent shape) so that it doesn't press down on the cake from the top. Put the cake back in for the last 20 minutes.

10It's ready when a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

11Lift the cake out with the parchment paper and place onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely before frosting.

12Prepare the almond glaze by adding the powdered sugar, soy milk and almond extract to a bowl and mixing in until smooth. I didn't use the electric mixer for this, I found it was easy to mix up in a bowl.

13Spoon this out over the top of the cooled pound cake and smooth it down. It will likely run down the sides, this is fine.

14Top the cake with some almond flakes or slivers and place into the fridge for a little while so that the frosting can set.

15Cut into slices and enjoy!
