  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour (whole wheat pastry flour works too)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces (1 cup by volume) silken tofu
  • ¾ cup organic granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup full-fat coconut milk (from a can)
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. 

  2. Lightly oil a 9-inch loaf pan.

  3. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  4. Place the tofu, sugar, and vanilla into a separate, large mixing bowl. Beat together using an electric mixer on high speed, just until fully mixed, about 2 minutes (some small lumps are okay).

  5. Add the coconut milk, lemon juice and zest. Beat about 1 more minute, until blended. 

  6. Add the flour mixture, about ⅓ at a time, beating well between additions, until completely blended, adding the rosemary along with the last addition.

  7. Transfer the mixture to the prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top with a spatula. 

  8. Bake for 50-55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

  9. Transfer the cake to a cooling rack and allow it to cool completely before removing it from the pan.

  10. Slice and serve.
