💭 FAQ and Top Tips

Cake Sizes

This batter can be transformed into: 1 bundt-style cake, 2 regular layer cakes or approximately 30 mini-cakes. Times can be found in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Can I use regular eggs instead of flax eggs?

Yes! To use regular eggs: use 4 eggs, omit the flaxseed and use 3/4 cup water instead of 1 1/2 cups.

Can I use butter instead of oil?

Yes! If you are not on a dairy-free diet, feel free to swap out the oil for melted butter instead.

Psyllium Husk

You can omit psyllium husk if you do not have it on hand or do not like. I like the texture (and health benefits) it lends to baked goods. It adds some holding power as well as some added light fluffiness to the batter. But it can be omitted for a still-tasty cake!

How well does this cake store? How do I store it?

This cakes keeps well lightly covered at room temperature overnight, or about 24 hours. Any longer and I recommend storing in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week. Serve cold or let sit at room temperature before serving.
