Get ready for the best vegan vanilla cake recipe that you won’t even know is vegan.  This vegan vanilla cake is the ultimate vanilla cake. Period. Full stop. You don’t need another recipe. It’s great as a birthday cake, graduation cake, wedding cake, or just any anytime treat! And it’s the best vegan cake recipe I’ve ever made in general. 

It’s so incredibly fluffy and moist, you’ll be hard-pressed to determine that this cake is indeed vegan, eggless, and dairy free (and gluten free too if you need that!). Plus, this cake is incredibly soft, fluffy, “buttery,” and packed with vanilla flavor that leaves you with a far from boring healthier vegan dessert.

This is honestly the best vanilla cake I’ve ever had, vegan or not, and I just know you’ll feel the same way. That’s why this cake recipe is absolutely going into my next cookbook.

You can use classic vegan vanilla buttercream or my easy vegan chocolate buttercream (which is next level delicious on this vegan chocolate cake). The even better part is that this vegan cake is just as easy as making a cake mix from the box. But when you can have the best vanilla cake ever , why even buy the mix?!
