We’re not telling fibs when we say over 65% of our customer base are vegans. But how, as one recent customer asked, how do you make cakes vegan, with no butter, milk, or eggs? Surely, you’re just left with flour and sugar?!
Well, you know what we’re going to say to that: OF COURSE NOT!
So, how do we get our cakes to stick together, rise, look great and taste amazing without any dairy or eggs? The exact recipes we have developed, are, of course, company secrets (apart from this one), but we can share some info with you in our new blog post!

More vegan cake facts you may like to know…
Vegan cakes are more eco-friendly than our standard cakes: free from animal products, and as a result, with a smaller impact on the environment.
They take a little longer to bake, and often look a little darker on top than a standard recipe. We often wrap vegan cakes in foil for the last 5-10 minutes of baking, to ensure the golden brown stays that delicious colour, and not turn burned.
The absence of eggs means vegan cakes are lower in cholesterol, which promotes healthy living, but they’re often a little higher in sugar – not all recipes, but some. If you’re concerned about your sugar intake, why not take a look at our 280 Skinny cake range?
That’s it for vegan baking 101 ... 280 bakes style. We hope this has intrigued you, and got you wanting to try a vegan cake this week!
