Total time: 
Cake Batter
  • 1½ cups flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup dairy-free sour cream or unsweetened applesauce
  • ¼ cup soy milk
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Cinnamon Topping
  • ¼ cup margarine, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
Vanilla Icing
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3-5 Tbs. water
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  1. Line an 8x8 inch square or round baking pan with parchment paper or grease with baking spray, set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix to combine.
  4. Add in the egg, sour cream, soy milk, oil, and vanilla and mix on low until smooth and combined.
  5. Pour batter into prepared pan and spread out evenly.
  6. In a heatproof bowl melt the margarine. Mix in the brown sugar and cinnamon. Once combined dollop the cinnamon sugar mix over the prepared batter. Swirl the batter with a knife to combine.
  7. Bake for about 30-40 minutes. The batter will puff up and turn golden brown, but the sugar will be a bit jiggly. It will firm up as it cools. Cool completely before adding the icing.
  8. To prepare the icing, mix the powdered sugar with the vanilla and a bit of water at a time until it is smooth. I like my icing thick but you can also add enough water to make a thin glaze. Drizzle icing over the cake and enjoy!
