Our Best Ever Vegan Coconut Cake with Cashew frosting you'll love
I love this soft and fluffy Cake, the taste is perfect and satisfying. My tasty Vegan Coconut Cake topped with yummy Cashew frosting is simply my family favorite Coconut Cake. We make this Cake especially during celebrations. This Cake has it all, soft, fluffy, tasty and is the best for every special occasion.
This amazing Coconut recipe is with no Butter, no Eggs and completely dairy free. I used roasted Cashew nuts. Soak the Cashews for at least 1 hour in hot water, drain and use as the recipe instructs. This Cashew frosting recipe is the easiest tasty frosting to make at home and the texture is softer,spreadable and even healthier. This family favorite frosting is our preferred choice for Coconut Cake. I always prefer a healthier frosting for my Cakes and this is one of the best. Orange flavor is my best choice for Cashew frosting but you can add Vanilla Extract and the taste will still remain perfect.
