Ah well, I am still playing catch up and we still have a week of baking and sharing desserts to go! Lets make this easy and delicious eggnog cake.

This Vegan Eggnog Pound cake is dense but melt in the mouth, has flavor from nutmeg, cloves, nog spices and the eggy ness from chickpea flour custard (you have to try it!). You can bake the batter into a bundt, change up the spices for different flavor and use complimentary icing of choice. The cake doesnt need premade vegan eggnog, but you can use it if you have some for deeper nog flavor. This cake is soft, pound cakey, amazing and a great treat to serve after any meal.

Ingredients 
 

eggnog custard

  • 1/2 cup non dairy yogurt, or use thin cashew cream
  • 1/2 cup non dairy milk, , such as almond or soy
  • 2/3 cup sugar, (1/2 cup for less sweet)
  • 1/3 tsp nutmeg, , add more to preference
  • 1/8 tsp ground clove
  • 1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice, or cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp chickpea flour, (or use regular flour)
  • a good pinch of salt

for the cake

  • 3 tbsp organic safflower or other oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup non dairy milk, or vegan eggnog
  • 1 1/4 cup flour, , I use 3/4 cup all purpose and 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour. (See Recipe Notes for gluten-free)
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • Icing of choice

Instructions 

  • Make the custard: In a small saucepan combine all the ingredients yogurt through a pinch of salt (yogurt, non dairy milk, sugar, spices, chickpea flour and pinch of salt) over medium heat. Whisk well occasionally to avoid flour lumps and bring to a good boil. Cook for another minute.
  • The mixture will thicken slightly. Cool for 5 minutes. Preheat the oven to 365 degrees F (185 C). Line a loaf pan with parchment or grease it.
    Prep the cake: Add the rest of the cake wet ingredients (oil, vanilla, salt and non dairy milk) to the custard mixture and mix in.
  • In another bowl, whisk the dry- flours, baking powder and baking soda. Combine with the wet. If the mixture is too flowy, add another 1 to 2 tbsp of flour.
  • Pour into parchment lined loaf pan. Bake for 40- 45 minutes. check with a toothpick from the center.
  • Let the cake cool for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely.
  • Slice with a serrated knife. Add icing if you like. Store on the counter for the day, or refrigerated for upto 5 days.
  • Use icing of choice (that uses nog or nog spices to enhance the overall flavor). such as powdered sugar + 1-2 tbsp vegan eggnog.  I also like a simple coconut cream icing with 1/4 cup coconut cream, 1/4 cup or more powdered sugar, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp nutmeg. Whisk until well combined.

Notes

To Make a Rum Eggnog Cake: Add a tbsp of rum or 1/4 tsp rum extract to the custard. 
To make this gluten-free: Mix 1/2 cup  rice flour or oat flour, 3/4 cup almond flour, 1/4 cup potato starch and 1/2 tsp citric acid. Whisk well. Use 1 1/4 cup of this mix instead of flour. Add more of the mix a few tbsp at a time to make a thick batter and proceed with the next step. If omitting citric acid, then use 1/4 cup club soda instead of the nondairy milk.

    Hi Richa,
    For the cake, is it 3 tsp (1BSP oil)?
    Just want to be certain.

    Looks delicious (as does everything you make).

    Thank you!
