Vegan Vanilla Pound Cake Recipe With Lime Glaze

Come Party With Me: Vegan Dinner — Dessert

Just because they don't eat meat or diary, doesn't mean vegans don't enjoy sweets. When hosting a vegan dinner — like the one I'm making for my detoxing sister and friends this weekend — do serve dessert.

The recipe is adaptable, if you don't have limes on hand, simply use lemons or orange as any citrus goes well with pound cake. To look at the make-in-advance recipe,

The vegetarian pound cake is total Dope! Yum! I substitute grapeseed oil (or walnut oil) for canola oil.

Thanks, AmberHoney, I agree. I haven't made it yet, but see firm silken tofu used in many dessert recipes. Let me know how it turns out for you!

@ misslisi - I don't think it matters since you're gonna be blending it. I just bought some firm and am gonna make this.

Which consistency of silken tofu should be used for this recipe: soft, medium, firm, or extra firm?
