  • 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)
  • 2 tbsp organic safflower or other neutral oil
  • 1/3 tsp nutmeg , add more to preference
  • 1/8 tsp ground clove
  • 1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
  • 1.5 tbsp chickpea flour (or use regular flour)
  • a good pinch of salt
  • 1 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


  • In a small saucepan combine all the ingredients yogurt through a 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. Add 1 tbsp oil, vanilla, salt and non dairy milk/eggnog and mix in. Preheat the oven to 365 degrees F (185 C). Line a loaf pan with parchment or grease it.
  • In a another bowl, whisk the flours, baking powder and 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 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.


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 white rice 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.
Nutrition is 1 of 10 slices without icing.
