Love Cake May 2019 round up

There's been plenty of bank holidays, bake sales and using seasonal produce for this month's Love Cake. Let's see what cakes have been baked this month.
Making the most of her rhubarb patch in her garden has been Kate from Gluten Free Alchemist. Her Gluten Free Rhubarb Upside Down Cake with Strawberry and Almond Sponge is perfect for using up a glut of rhubarb. It is paired with ground almonds and the intense flavour of freeze-dried strawberry powder.
I've done three bake sales this month and one of the favourite cakes has been vegan chocolate cake. The eggs are replaced by using a combination of oat milk, cider vinegar and bicarbonate of soda. I've been told by several vegans that this is the best vegan chocolate cake they have ever had. Non-vegans have told me they would have never guessed it was a vegan cake. What higher praise could you ask for?!

As well as vegan chocolate cake I've also made a vegan toffee apple upside cake. Again this uses vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to get that necessary chemical reaction to get that cakey rise.

Another favourite at the cake sales has been way to use some of our rhubarb from the allotment. This rhubarb upside down cake has ground almonds in it and then sprinkled with crushed Amaretti biscuits and finished off with an orange and rosemary glaze.

That's our cakes for this month. I have a couple more cake sales next month to be baking for and I'll be in a couple of days with June's linky.
