OMG! What a discovery! This vegan Ice Tea Cake is insanely delicious! Who would have thought that you can use Ice Tea for a Cake? Well you definitively can.
Inspired by the traditional lemon cakes
Do you know these lemon cake recipes where you just bake a lemony cake and then use the juice of 3-4 lemons mixed with a little bit of sweetener and then drizzle this over the cake so it get’s really moist, juicy and yummy? I thought I could do the same but instead of just lemon juice I will use Ice Tea.
I use the Instant-Ice Tea Pouches
I know this might not be the healthiest option, but hey, we’re talking about cake here and we all deserve that piece of indulging cake from time to time with a good cup of coffee, or maybe iced coffee in this case? This is a perfect recipe for summer. I used lemon ice tea for this recipe, but I know there are also other flavours on the market like for example mango or peach. Feel free to use whatever you’re fancy.
Only 10 ingredients
This cake is really easy to do, once you have found the instant ice tea pouches from the supermarket or healthstore. Just take a big bowl, prepare the flax egg, mix all the other ingredients together and that’s it. Bake it, use the remaining instant ice tea and pour it over the cake and let it cool down. If you like, you can top this cake with some lemony icing. Just take some powdered sugar and mix it with just enough lemon juice to get a glaze like consistency. Top the cake with the icing and let it cool down.
Surprise your guests this summer
I guarantee happy faces when you make this cake for your next summer party dessert buffet. Or also for an afternoon tea party, as this cake goes very well with a cup of coffee or tea. You will be surprised.
