Vegan carob cake with plum jam is one type of cake I make at the place I work at. It got good feedback and requests for recipe so I decided to share it with you 🙂 In Slovenia carob is commonly used in desserts and I wanted to use it as an alternative to cocoa powder. #shoplocalbaby
That is also the reason why this recipe is so similar to very famous recipe on my page: vegan chocolate cake.
it would be great if you have
roll up your sleeves
Start preheating the oven on 200°C.
In one bowl mix flour, sugar, carob, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another mix milk, oil and lemon juice.
Mix the dry ingredients slowly in the liquid mixture
Divide the mixture in two parts and bake in two oiled cake pans Ø 22 cm. If you have only one bake in two batches. Bake the layer for 20-25 minutes – until a toothpick comes out clean. When it’s done put it out of the cake pan, cool it down and repeat the baking with the rest of the batter.
Spread around 10 tablespoons of plum jam in-between layers and then top some more on the cake. Sprinkle with some cocoa nibs for extra crunch.
Serve it with vanilla ice-cream for extra treat.
