Vegan Steamed Cake (Brioche-like)
This vegan Steamed Cake is Brioche-like, soft, fluffy and rich. It is great for kids because it is made without any sugar added and its vibrant colors come from pureed vegetables!
This time I made it in 3 different colors (pink-beetroot, green-spinach, yellow-sweet potato) and three different fillings (banana & peanut butter, sugarless haselnut chocolate, sweet potato with cocoa powder and dates).
You can of course pick your favorite color and your favorite filling and it will be less work! Or you could choose to make it into little balls without any filling.
Because this steamed cake is made with rich coconut milk this steamd cake, even though vegan, is very rich and very close to a real brioche.
