What is Veganism

Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals. An individual who follows the diet or philosophy is known as a vegan. Distinctions may be made between several categories of veganism.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Chilling Time 12 hours
Total Time 12 hours 50 minutes


Cake layer

  • 125 ml (½ cup) soy milk
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) apple cider vinegar
  • 250 ml (1 cup) flour
  • 2.5 ml (½ tsp) baking powder
  • 1.25 ml (¼ tsp) baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 62.5 ml + 25 ml (¼ cup + 2 tbsp.) sugar
  • 37.5 ml (3 tbsp.) vegetable oil
  • 0.5 ml (½ tsp) vanilla

Cranberry Compote

  • 750 ml (3 cups) frozen cranberries
  • 250 ml (1 cup) sugar
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) orange zest
  • 85 ml (1/3 cup) orange juice

White Chocolate Mousse

  • 170 g (6 oz.) cocoa butter, roughly chopped
  • 250 ml (1 cup) canned coconut cream
  • 62.5 ml (¼ cup) coconut milk powder or soymilk powder
  • 62.5 ml (¼ cup) agave nectar
  • 759 ml (3 more cups) coconut cream, completely chilled until solid
  • 62.5 ml (¼ cup) confectioner’s sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine soy milk and vinegar and set aside for 10 minutes to thicken.

Make a cake layer right in the 10"x8" casserole you'll serve it in.

  1. Simply combine the dry ingredients in the casserole.
  2. Then add the sugar, oil, and vanilla to the milk and mix well.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix.
  4. Spread it evenly, and then bake for about 16 minutes until lightly browned.
  5. Chill the cake.

The compote is very simple to make.

  1. Just combine all the Cranberry Compote ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer until it's broken down, thickened, and reduced to about half the volume.
  2. Set aside in the fridge to cool completely.

For the mousse

  1. Start by melting the cocoa butter over a double boiler.
  2. Whisk in the 1 cup of room temperature coconut cream, the milk powder, and the agave nectar.
  3. Remove from heat, whisk until smooth, and then put it in the freezer for 30 minutes. This part is very specific!
  4. The mixture should be completely cooled, the outside rim should have the consistency of soft butter, and the middle should look like a thick caramel.
  5. Once it has properly cooled, start whipping the solid, cold coconut cream in a stand mixer.
  6. Once it's fluffy, add the icing sugar and whip it together at high speed to get it fluffy.
  7. Then add the white chocolate mixture and whip on medium-high until it's all smooth and fluffy together.
  8. If needed, you can store the mousse in the fridge while the other 2 parts cool - this dessert should only be assembled once everything is completely cooled.
  9. But don't let the mousse sit in the fridge more than an hour before assembling.

To assemble

  1. Simply scoop dollops of mousse onto the cake layer, interspersed with spoonsful of the cranberry compote.
  2. Swirl it all together, and then chill in the fridge to set.
  3. This is best done at least 12 hours before serving.
