Chocolate Cake made with the VEGG!

The very kind and generous Rocky, of the Vegg, sent me a sample of this wondrous product. What is the Vegg you ask? It’s the world’s first vegan egg yolk. Yes, you read that right. It is a light yellow powder and it smells EXACTLY like eggs. I was quite taken aback by that and really didn’t expect the likeness to be so real. In true Air Eater style, here’s the nutritional information:

As I had Bob’s Red Mill gluten free all purpose flour I used this recipe as a guide line and vegan-ized it. My substitutions are on the right.

  • 3/4 cup warm brewed Coffee < did not include
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar < cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Xanthan Gum
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Milk (cow, soy or rice) < almond milk
  • 1/3 cup Butter, Margarine or Shortening < Earth Balance
  • 1 large Egg < The Vegg 1/2 tsp with 1/8 cup of water blended by machine
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cups GF All Purpose Baking Flour 

Be mindful of the directions for the Vegg and use a blender as per the package directions. One detail I paid attention to and wanted to make note.

Here’s how it turned out for me:I made a dinosaur cake shape flanked with sliced bananas. Who doesn’t want to eat a dinosaur piece of cake? Seriously. It was a great spongy recipe that I would highly suggest for anyone who doesn’t want to use fifteen different flours. It worked well and I really have to hand it to the Vegg, I think the cake was seriously moist and soft for a gluten free cake.

One beautiful aspect about purchasing this product: 10% of net sales will be donated to Compassion Over Killing until 2014!

Go check out the Vegg and the many stores it’s available at.

Happy eating!

  1. Would love to try this product. I mean at 5 calories, a whopping lot of vitamin A… I’m surprised there isn’t more vitamin B in it since it has it in the ingredients. I would definitely keep this on hand – shelf stable products are very helpful in a pinch!

    The cake looks awesome!
