Blackberry crumble cake

Blackberry Crumble cake is a true poem! I love crumble cake simply over everything, no matter whether Cherry , Apple or anything else Fruit , which is just ripe and juicy. The Summer has dared to show itself after all and at the moment we have really great bathing weather here. Just a few days ago we were at the lake around here and it was just gorgeous. Thanks to Corona with a little more distance, but who swims in the lake 1.5m to the next person? I certainly don’t, because I need my Space (laugh). In any case, I hope that the hot temperatures will continue for a while and we can still enjoy August to the fullest. It’s not necessarily high season for our huskies right now, but even they can find cool places to linger. Currently, the staircase is high on the cool tiles towards the basement. When the sun disappears on the horizon, then it’s also straight into the garden for running and exploring.

Vegan blackberry crumble cake, where have you been so long

The blackberry cake consists of three main components. sponge cake, Blackberries and crumble. First we make the sponge cake from baking powder, apple cider vinegar, Vegetable milk , melted margarine, banana, cane sugar, spelt flour, vanilla and a pinch of salt. This is all blended into a fine, even batter and poured into a springform pan. On top are the blackberries, which in my case I picked fresh from the garden.

The crowning glory is the crumble made from margarine, spelt flour, rolled oats, spelt flour and cinnamon. Swish, put it in the oven and after 40 minutes the cake is ready. Whip cream, put on coffee and enjoy I would say. Are you in?

A vegan cake just always goes, right?

I find this Recipe ingenious because it is so simple. Actually, there are only a few things you can do wrong and I would like to show you those in the following points. After all, there’s nothing worse than sitting in front of a dry, un-fluffy Cake cake. I love it at Coffee party to show that also vegan Cake taste incredibly delicious. Many people still have the prejudice that vegan baked goods do not taste good. Do we want to convince them otherwise? Let’s go!

  • The dough should be nice and even, not too firm and not too runny. The consistency may vary depending on the flour used. That’s why it’s always worth taking a close look. If too liquid, add a little more flour. If too dry, add a little more vegetable milk. In the video I show the consistency of the dough again exactly.
  • Do not stir the dough for too long, otherwise you will stir out the leavening power of the baking powder in combination with the vinegar. Stir only until the dough is smooth and uniform. Ready!
  • If you use frozen blackberries, roll them once in flour. When thawing, the berries become slightly watery and this can look unsightly in the final result.
  • At the end of the baking time, do the chopstick test by poking the dough with a wooden chopstick. If it comes out dry, the cake is done. If dough sticks to wooden stick, bake for another 10 minutes and then test again.
