Abe’s Vegan Pound Cakes are Available in Four Fabulous Varieties

1

If you haven’t tried Abe’s yet, then you are definitely missing out. They make tons of fabulous vegan mini muffins, and now they have Abe’s Vegan Pound Cakes! All of Abe’s products are dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, and considered school safe, but trust me, no one will taste the difference. I shared these pound cakes with people in my building and someone suggested to my husband that I open a bakery. Apparently they didn’t notice the Abe’s label that I stuck right on the platter.

Tasting Notes for Abe’s Vegan Pound Cakes

These sweet desserts initially launched in four varieties, which we had the opportunity to sample. They’ve since doubled their vegan pound cake inventory to EIGHT flavors. I’ve included notes for the ones we have tried, but basic information for all of them.

Please note that the nutrition facts for all Abe’s Vegan Pound Cakes are similar, but the newer flavors are based on just 5 slices per loaf, while the original flavors are based on 7 slices per loaf.

Original Vanilla

Naturally, I started with the Original for a baseline comparison. It was sweet and moist with perky vanilla undertones and just enough richness. The taste and density were pretty spot, but it was a touch more delicate than traditional pound cake.

Ultimate Lemon

This is the Original with natural lemon flavor added, and it is equally delicious. The lemon permeates for a lightly zesty flavor that’s perfect with tea. This cake also seemed to have a slightly sugary crust on top, which was mighty tasty.

Ginger Spice

This holiday-inspired flavor was a little less moist than the others and more “gingerbread” like than cake. But the flavor was wonderfully warm and perfectly spiced.

Coffee Cake

This tasted just like the Original pound cake, but with warm cinnamon notes and big chunky crumbs. The topping was very crumbly, and had a sweet pastry bite rather than a sugary finish. It’s a dessert that I think kids will love, but it also has grown-up appeal and is perfect with tea or coffee.

The ultimate in pound cake! Never tasted better!

I picked up a loaf of Abe’s coffee cake at Whole Foods, and the next week I picked up another one! My uncle was a chef and made a great buttery pound cake, and I thought that was the best, so Ive been trying to find something as good for many years!! This is even better. I am so grateful to Abe, whoever and wherever he is, for bringing back that great nostalgic taste!! Disregard the humble packaging, and pick some up some Abe’s! A+!

We have been getting Abe’s for awhile. It’s our favorite vegan baked goods company. We started with the chocolate chip muffins (5 stars too) and the coffee cake is my personal favorite. I can’t tell is vegan. It has a great texture, lots of flavor and rivals any other coffee cake/ muffins out there. It is perfect since I’m dairy free and my daughter has a dairy allergy. Highly recommend.

    I love your products and I shop at Wild By Nature in Oceanside Ny. For some reason they do not have your products anymore and I really want to know where I can buy your coffee cakes.
