Yogurt Cake

What you need: 

4 cups flour
2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup applesauce or oil
8 oz plain soy yogurt
1 cup soymilk
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract

What you do: 

Combine the soymilk and vinegar in a medium bowl, let stand 10 minutes to curdle. Add oil or applesauce, yogurt and flavorings.
In a larger bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Add wet ingredients to dry, mix well.
Pour into prepared pan (I like a bundt cake pan for this one), and bake at 350 until cake springs back when poked.
This tastes a lot like a doctored cake mix cream cheese cake I used to make before I was vegan. It's good served with fresh berries or drizzled with a little icing.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

this cake was awesome!!
i also used lemon extract instead of almond and I end up needing an extra 1/2 cup of soymilk because it was soooo dry, but the result was amazing. I highly recommend this recipe, thnx for posting! :D ;)b

This is one of the best cakes I've ever baked.  The only change I made was lemon extract instead of almond.

I used a hole pan (as seen in photo), and the baking time was about an hour.  I used a bundt pan the second time, and the time was about 1h15m to 1h20m.

this turned out pretty good, minus cooking issues. i baked in a bundt pan for about 50 minutes and thought it was done per the toothpick test. boy was i wrong! the middle was still gooey! but the baked part was yummers. i wish this recipe had more specific baking directions (or at least an estimate) to shoot for.

the baked part was very dense and flavorful. i used flavored yogurt (vanilla and raspberry) and those flavors were mellow and good. i'll try this again, hopefully with better results in the future!

I made this as my "sweet" for Thanksgiving.  I used 3 -3/4 unbleached white flour (all I had) and 1/4 cup whole wheat.  I used applesauce instead of oil and I also substituted brandy extract for the almond extract because I waited until Thanksgiving to decide I wanted something sweet and the grocery store was closed so I couldn't buy any almond extract.  I put a glaze made of banana and raw sugar with chopped walnuts on it (another vegweb recipe).  It turned out wonderful.  We took the rest of the cake to our Sunday School class at church and they loved it.  We didn't tell them it's vegan until they started asking for the recipe!  They were astonished that such a great cake didn't have any cow milk or eggs in it!
