The Perfect Jubilee Recipe

The Perfect Jubilee Recipe

In the spirit of doing good and feeling good, we've been channelling all the Great British Bake Off vibes in the run up to the Jubilee. Baking can help lower stress hormones, such as cortisol and epinephrine. Not only is this good for lowering your levels of stress and anxiety, but that also has a knock-on impact on your sleep, immunity levels, blood pressure and more, thus making baking good for your overall health too.

We’ve been trialling some bakes one has come out on top and we couldn’t wait to share it with you. If you’re looking for the perfect vegan cake recipe, keep scrolling:

400g plain flour

300g caster sugar

1tbsp baking powder

RECIPE:

CAKE:

  • Preheat oven to 180° Celsius

  • Mix all dry ingredients in large bowl and make a well in the centre
  • Mix all wet ingredients in a separate bowl
  • Once combined, add wet ingredients in to dry ingredients
  • Mix together until smooth
  • Split mixture between two cake tins and smooth out on top
  • Place in oven for 30 minutes and rotate at 15-minute mark
  • Once out, check if your cakes are cooked all the way through by placing a skewer through the centre – if this doesn’t come out clean pop your cakes back in to the oven for a little longer.
  • Place on rack to dry

CREAM:

  • Remove the cream from the 2 cans of coconut milk
  • Add maple syrup and vanilla and mix until smooth
  • Once cakes are cool choose the base cake and level it out with a knife
  • Add jam to the top of the base cake with a spatula, leaving around 2cm from the edge
  • Add cream on top (not all the way to the edge!)
  • Place second cake on top and press down until the filling reaches the edges
  • Add remaining cream to top half of the cake

 DECORATE:

  • To decorate, place a line of raspberries down the centre both vertically and horizontally, as well as diagonally both ways to create the lines of the Union Jack
  • Fill in the gaps with blueberries

Serve with a cup of tea or a glass of champagne, sit back, relax and enjoy the long weekend! Be sure to tag us in any pictures of your recreations over on Instagram @oceansaverdrops and share the recipe with friends.
