How to make vegan banana cake

Print this recipe
When I first became a vegan, I thought I’d have to give up my baking habit for good. It seemed unlikely that I could create moist, flavorful, lofty cakes without using eggs. Then I found this recipe below. It proves that vegan cakes are not only possible, but totally crave-worthy. This simple cake packs full banana flavor.
The trick to getting your baked goods to rise without eggs is to use a combination of an acid like vinegar and baking soda. Activation occurs when these two meet, creating bubbles -- and bubbles are what make your cakes airy. These cupcakes are the delicious result of one simple and fun science experiment.

This might look like a complicated recipe, but the brilliance of it is that you can make the parts separately. The pickled onions last up to two weeks in the fridge, and the rest of the recipe is incredibly quick and simple to make.
