  • 150 g flour⁠
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 65 g of sugar
  • 125 ml plant drink
  • 60 g vegetable butter (soft)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 dash of vanilla extract
  • 100 g currants (more if you like)


  • Preheat the oven to 180 ° top / bottom heat.
  • Grease the baking tin or baking dish and sprinkle with flour.
  • Wash and drain the currants.
  • Now mix the flour, baking powder and sugar together.
  • Then add the vegetable drink, melted / softened butter and apple cider vinegar and stir.
  • Now put the dough in the mold and smooth it out.
  • Finally, pluck the currants from the stem. This works well with a cake fork. And spread on the cake.
  • The whole thing can now be in the oven for about 40 minutes. It is best to do a chopstick test.
  • If you like, you can add a little icing sugar before serving.


The recipe is for a small baking dish and makes a rather flat cake. The shape we used here was 26x17cm.
If you want a thick base, you can use twice the amount of batter and fill a loaf pan with the batter. Then the baking time increases, however. The stick test tells you whether the dough is done.
After baking, you can garnish with additional currants and some icing and serve.
