Vegan Ladyfingers Recipe
Updated: Jul 10
If you have tried the store brought ladyfingers, you will agree with me on how dry it is which is why it's great to use in the recipe such as Tiramisu to kept the dried biscuit moist. But homemade ladyfinger is delectable. A thin layer of sweet crisp on the outside and soft and spongy on the inside.
Not only this ladyfinger recipe can use in Tiramisu, but this recipe is also great to use as a cake base as well. In the traditional recipe, egg whites are the star on making the biscuit rise but to veganize the recipe and yet still tasted delicious , I use the buttermilk method.
Dusting the powdered sugar on top will help the ladyfinger have a nice thin crust. I don't recommend you skip this step. Powdered sugar does dissolve into the batter, so I recommend to dust the powdered sugar on batter the second time before baking.
Time : 30 minutes
Make: 2 dozen traditional ladyfingers shape( 6 inch ) or 2 (8 inch) cake
2 tablespoons of Red Bob eggs replacer
4 tablespoons of water
1 cup of soy milk
1/3 cup of cane sugar
1 tablespoon of Apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons of Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 cup of oil
2 cups of all all purpose flour
some powdered sugar.
Use a ruler to make a rectangle shape on a parchment paper according to your use purpose. Flip the pencil side toward the baking pan and set it aside until it ready to be used.
To make the buttermilk, add in apple cider vinegar to soy milk. Stir and let it sit for 5 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together egg replacer and water. Let it sit for 1 minute until it becomes thicken.
Pour in the buttermilk into the egg replacer mixture and stir until everything is combined.
Add in the sugar and stir until most of the sugar is dissolved.
Sift in baking powder and baking soda. (If the baking soda lumps occurred, use the back of the spatula to deflate the lump)
Stir in the oil a little at the time.
Sift in the flour and mix together until all the ingredients are combined.
Transfer the batter in the piping bag.
Pip the batter within the template you created.
Dust the powdered sugar on top of the batter and wait for a minute until some of the sugar is dissolved. Dust the batter again with the powdered sugar the second time.
Bake the ladyfinger in the 350F preheated oven for 12 minutes.
