Animal rights charity PETA has announced the winner of its vegan bake-off contest. 

Katy Beskow, vegan blogger at Little Miss Meat-Free, took the title of Great Vegan Bake-Off champion for her ‘ombre vanilla dream’ cake.

PETA’s Mimi Bekhechi said: "Congratulations to Katy! While all the entrants are winners in our book, Katy’s light and airy vanilla dream cake had us salivating. The balsamic vinegar addition is both unexpected and inspired, and Katy’s easy-to-follow recipe shows just how simple vegan baking can be."

The winner was decided by a public vote and a review by PETA based on several factors, including vote count.

The winning cake is made with soya milk and sunflower oil.

Other entries included a cheese-less cheesecake and a banana-and-walnut spelt loaf.
