Vegan coffee cake

I have really good news for everyone. You can thank little vegan planet for finding this one. Trader Joe’s started stocking a few cake mixes and whenever I see something new on the shelves I check to see if it’s vegan. I picked a box of vanilla cake and it was definitely not vegan so I didn’t bother checking the rest. Turns out, the coffee cake is vegan. I don’t usually make boxed baked goods, but hey, who doesn’t like an easy dessert every once and awhile.

So I followed the directions on the box using almond milk and Earth Balance instead of milk & butter. Threw in a teaspoon of egg replacer and 2 tablespoons of water. Did some stiring and some crumbling. Forty minutes later we had a delicious coffee cake.

So go make some freaking coffee cake already. It’s easy, it tastes good. It’s vegan. Yay!

    I love finding random, easy-to-make vegan foods. I keep a mental list for people who think veganism is too inconvenient.

    Oooh! Nice catch, Alix! I, too, passed by this in Trader Joe’s and just assumed that it was not vegan. Next time I will be more observant! Looks lovely. 🙂

    Yes! A vegan find from the TJ’s baked good section…I will definitely track it down. I also have looked at most boxes to be disappointed that they were all non-vegan…

    I once spent a long time standing there in the aisle reading the labels of every boxed mix that TJ’s had and pleasantly discovered that the coffee cake as well as a few other mixes are vegan. I purchased every mix that was and have tried most of them – the coffee cake is actually next on my list! There are brownies as well as pumpkin, apple and cranberry breads. As my egg replacer I use a mashed banana or flax powder and water or applesauce which makes each of the baked goods even more delicious, moist and nutritious!
