How to make a cake without milk, without eggs and without butter – Italian Cuisine

How to make a cake without milk, without eggs and without butter

Intolerant to eggs or milk e vegans all, this article is for you. Let's prepare one cake delicious and perfect for breakfast without animal protein.

Vegetable alternatives in the cake

We assure you that an eggless cake can be made and even without butter it can be anyway very soft.
Many use chia seeds to give elasticity to the compound because immersed in a liquid they become almost as gelatinous as egg white.
In reality, even without this ingredient, you can prepare a soft and slightly moist cake that can be eaten simply with coffee or tea for breakfast, but which can also become the basis of a cake with cream … provided that the cream is also made without eggs. (If you are curious to try, here is the recipe for egg-free cream.)
In fact, by mixing dry ingredients such as flour, yeast and cocoa, with liquid ingredients like vegetable milk (soy, almonds or coconut), oil and orange or lemon juice, you will obtain a consistency very similar to that of a classic cake with eggs, milk and butter. The important thing is to always add a little bit of baking powder.

The choice of flour

You can use flour 0 or 00 for preparing cakes or even mixing these two with one rice or spelled flour. If you don't like very refined flours, use them the whole ones, but the result will be a slightly less fluffy and more rustic cake.
If you choose the flour with the yeast inside you obviously won't need to add other leavening agents.
The important thing is always sift very well both flour and yeast in order not to create lumps in the dough and to obtain a lighter and softer consistency.

The cakes "without"
