Vegan Berry Cake
60 min

As previously mentioned in my Buckwheat Pancakes recipe, buckwheat as a lot of advantages. It has a particular taste but it helps to regulate the blood sugar level.

I came up with this recipe after buying a vegan cake in the organic store which was pretty expensive. I thought by myself "why are you buying and spending so much money for something so easy to make?!".
The evening itself I opened my cupboards and took all the ingredients I had in mind to make my very first Vegan Cake. To be honest, I was kind of nervous cause I wasn't sure about the ingredients nor the quantity of each single ingredient itself. After 20 min (which is the preparation time) I was really curious if this would work out cause the dough wasn't like a usual cake-dough. It was much firmer, so firm you'd better knead it with your hands. Btw guys, I know a lot of people don't like to touch their food with their hands but you should start doing it cause it's only by touching it that you can feel if it has the right texture and if it's moisture enough.

Anyway, after preparing and touching my food I put it in the oven and this is the result ... A delicious Vegan Berry Cake!

Good to know

You can store it in the fridge with some clinging wrap around up to 5 days. If easier use a Tupperware. Just make sure you close is it very well.

You don't have rice malt syrup at home? You can use 100% maple syrup or 5 drops of Stevia extract.
