A classic winter warmer in a vegan version. Delicious, comforting sponge with a sticky and syrupy pool hidden underneath it. Enjoy it warm, with some vegan custard or vegan ice cream.
Vegan Treacle Sponge Recipe
How to Make a Vegan Treacle Sponge
Preheat the oven to 180°C (170°C fan). Grease 1 l ovenproof dish and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the Lyle’s Golden Syrup, lemon juice and lemon zest. Pour this mixture over the bottom of the greased ovenproof dish and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together, for about 2 minutes. Add the salt and vegan yoghurt and mix again to combine.
Add the flour and gently fold it into the batter. Pour the vegan milk of choice and stir all the ingredients together.
Pour the batter into the baking dish (on top of the Lyles Golden Syrup and lemon mixture). Use a wet spoon or spatula to spread the batter and smooth it on top.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, until risen and golden brown. Serve with custard or ice cream.
