Berry Cake with Crumbles

Berry Cake with Crumbles

It’s fun to try out new recipes but it’s always good to have one or two recipes at hand which you know they turn out good every time. This recipe is one of them. I always bake it for potlucks or other events on which I have to prove that vegan ≠ not tasty. The event last weekend which caused me to use my oven again was the Veganmania. It is a vegan summer festival in eleven bigger cities of Europe. Unfortunately the two-days festival chose to stop in Switzerland on the nastiest days in the year.  It rained and stormed all day long. Anyway, it was great. I was so stuffed after the weekend! Burgers, kebab, falafel, ice cream, cakes, truffles, cupcake…..yep, a paradise for vegans and vegan-interested people!


Here is the link to the recipe for all the german speakers:
The dough together with the berries is so tasty and who doesn’t love crumbles! :DAnd here is the translated version of the berry cake, for the dough:

110g wheat flour

50g ground almonds

3 tbsp cornstarch


1/2 tsp natron

1 tsp baking powder

60g raw cane sugar

1/2 tsp ground vanilla

pinch of salt

125 ml soy milk

2 tsp lemon jucie

60 ml neutral oil

300g berries (If you use fried berries, take them out of the freezer right before using them)

For the crumbles:

175g wheat flour

60g raw cane sugar


90g margarine

For the dough, add the lemon juice to the soy milk and let it sit while you prepare the dough. Mix all the dry ingredients together. Then add the oil to the milk and whisk the liquid until it condenses a bit. Mix the liquid under the dry ingredients until it is well combined. Spread it evenly on an oiled pan.

Spread the berries on the dough and heat the oven to 200°C.

For the crumbles you mix the flour, the sugar, the spices and the margarine together and knead it with your hands, Sprinkle on top of the berries.

Bake for about 40 to 45 minutes.


With this recipe every oh so unskilled baker should be able to convince 95% of all sceptical omnivores out there!
