Is this Vegan Breakfast Cake Healthy?

Vegan counterparts of the dishes are always considered healthier and more nutritious. Cakes in general are said to be full of fats and sugar. The vegan version of a regular cake is better than the normal one but it is important to know that its sugar content is very high and sugar does not go very well with one’s health like this low fat vegan angel cake recipe here.

Conclusion

This cake needs to be taken in the right amount, preferably one slice at a time and must be devoured with evening tea or early morning breakfast. Use sugar in the right amount if you want to binge on it. The vegan recipe is definitely healthier than the regular one and everyone must make a gradual shift towards the vegan life because it is the future!
