Pound cake slices from the neighboring coffee shop were often the to go snack or breakfast on the days I was in a hurry (when I was working a 9 to 5 job right out of school and not yet settled in). That seems like a lifetime ago. Seattle is quite a comfortable place as a vegan. There are generally enough options for everything. Pound cakes however have been rarely seen.

Vegan Cream Cheese Pound Cake. Marbled Vanilla Chocolate Cake. This pound cake is moist and dense | VeganRicha.com #vegan #cake #recipe.

I decided to make my own this season. This Easy Marbled Pound Cake today to celebrate the week that is my Birthday! I added vegan cream cheese to this one and it makes each slice just the right dense and fudgy. 

Vegan cream cheese brands might have soy in some form and some additives that can add other flavors tot he cake. You can add more vanilla or spices to mask it if needed or a frosting. To make this soy-free, use kite hill almond cream cheese or use my soy-free mini pound cake recipe. Make the pound cake plain or marbled.

    Richa, your recipes are abSEWlutely the Best! And this cake is over the top! I want to make this as a ‘Tweed’ cake, chopped chocolate is added & it looks like a Tweed Fabric.
    So do you think I could omit the 3 tablespoons of milk and add the chopped chocolate? Or should I add an extra tablespoon of milk? I’m also using applesauce instead of oil.
    Thank you in advance,

    1. Vegan Richa Support says:

      No need to add or reduce milk, but only use 1 tbsp of applesauce to substitute the cashew cream.
