Ooey Gooey Butter Cake uses soft tofu allowing for a vegan version. Dusted with powdered sugar and moist and ‘gooey’ in the middle, this cake is easy and fun to make!
9 - 12
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine the cake mix, ½ cup soft tofu and 8 Tablespoon of melted vegan butter (1 stick). Blend using a hand mixer. When mixture is moistened, dry and crumbly pour it into a lightly greased baking pan. Use your fingers or the back of a spoon to pat down the mixture a bit.
Add the remaining melted vegan butter (1 stick), vegan cream cheese, 1 cup soft tofu, 1 tsp vanilla and 16oz powdered sugar to the large mixing bowl. (You do not need to rinse out the bowl.) Using the same mixer, beat until smooth.
Pour this mixture over top the dry mixture in the pan.
Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the edges very lightly brown. Try not to over bake the cake if you want it nice and ‘gooey.’
When cake is ready, allow it to cool completely before slicing and serving. Chilling in the fridge for a few hours or overnight is even better. To serve: dust with powdered sugar.
