VegGirl's Birthday cake..

was fruity and fun.  I used Pomegranate-Cherry Juice for the liquid.  The cake was frosted with a love cherry frosting, made by cooking down a half cup of frozen cherries and using the liquid to flavor and tint the vegan butter cream frosting.  Not as popular as the orange cake, although the frosting was a big hit with the birthday girl.  I am thinking I will use straight cherry juice or a cranberry raspberry juice next time.

Cherry Pomegranate Cake
2 cups Unbleached All Purpose Flour
1 cup Spelt Flour
1/2 cup Coconut Flour
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
2 cups Pomegranate-Cherry Juice
2 cups Demerara Sugar
2/3 cup Canola Oil
2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp Lime Juice

Grease and flour 9x13 pan.  Preheat oven to 350 F.  Whisk together flours, baking soda, and salt.  In separate bowl stir together demerara sugar, juices, oil, and vinegar.  Add wet ingredients to dry and whisk to combine.  Pour into prepared pan and bake for 35 minutes.  Allow to cool completely before frosting or sprinkling with powdered sugar.
