Ingredients

For the Sponge Cake

QtyIngredient
150g
Dairy-free butter (plus a little extra to grease the tins)
300mlDairy-free milk (we used no-sugar oat milk)
1 tspVanilla extract
1 tbspApple cider vinegar
300g Self-raising flour
3 tspBaking powder 
200gGolden caster sugar
4 tbspRaspberry jam

For the dairy-free frosting

QtyIngredient
114g
Almond butter
1 tspVanilla extract
250gIcing sugar
60mlDairy-free milk (we used no-sugar oat milk)

Method

  • Heat the oven to 180 C 
  • Grease and line two tins - around 20cm in size.
  • Pour the dairy-free milk into a jug and add the apple cider vinegar. It will start to go slightly lumpy. Let it sit for a few minutes.
  • Add the butter, vanilla extract, flour, baking powder and caster sugar into a bowl and mix.
  • Pour in the dairy-free milk and apple cider vinegar mixture and beat together until you have a smooth texture.
  • Divide the mixture in half and split between the two tins.
  • Pop in the oven and bake for around 30-40 minutes.
  •  Leave the sponge to cool before making the frosting.
  • For the icing - mix the almond butter and vanilla extract.
  •  Sift in the icing sugar.
  • Slowly stir the dairy-free milk making sure to blend evenly.
  •  If it feels too thick, add a splash more dairy-free milk - until you reach a texture that resembles buttercream.
  • Wait for the sponges to cool before adding a thin layer of raspberry jam and a layer of almond butter to top of one sponge.
  • Place the second sponge on the top and add the rest of the buttercream. Evenly spread the rest of the buttercream and decorate with fruit.
