Notes

After 45 minutes, to see if the cake is cooked, prick with a toothpick, if the cake is not ready continue baking for 5 minutes, they shouldn’t need more. Let it cool well at room temperature before serving.
Variation: When my lovely soy Kefir is more active than usual I use it in cakes. Here is the variant of vegan orange and chocolate cake with soy kefir: From the recipe indicated above, replace 130 g of natural soy yogurt with no-sugar and 100 ml of soy milk with no-sugar with 230 g of soy kefir.
