  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray two 8 or 9 inch cake pans with oil. I also like to place a circle of round parchment paper in the bottom to prevent the cakes from sticking to the pans.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt and sugar together until well combined.
  • To the same bowl, pour in the oil, soy milk, apple cider vinegar and vanilla. Mix with the dry ingredients using a large spoon until just combined. Be careful not to over mix, or the cake won't be as soft. Fold in 1/2 cup sprinkles.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the cake pans and bake for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Let the cakes cool in the pans for about 10 minutes, then carefully pop them out and place on a cooling rack. You must allow the cakes to cool completely before frosting.
  • Prepare a batch of Vegan Vanilla Frosting. Once the cakes have cooled, frost as desired and top with more sprinkles. Serve and enjoy!


  1. If you want the cake to be even more soft, use cake flour in place of all purpose flour. 
  2. I used canola oil, but you can use melted coconut oil or melted vegan butter. Other neutral flavored oils may work as well. If using coconut oil, make sure the soy milk is not too cold or it will make the coconut oil solidify when you are mixing the batter.
  3. May use almond milk or another non-dairy milk in place of soy.
  4. I used vegan sprinkles from Sweetapolita. They are my favorite! You can use any vegan friendly rainbow colored sprinkles.
