Vegan Dutch Apple Cake

7 Oct

Our lovely friend Robyn gave us a bunch of cooking and eating apples from her apple trees! So, we decided to make this delicious Dutch Apple Cake. Yum!

Ingredients: 4 tbsp soy flour, 4 tbsp vegetable oil, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 12 tbsp margarine, 1 3/4 cups caster sugar (+ about 2 tbsp for sprinkling), 1/2 cups soy milk, 2 1/4 cups plain flour, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon (+ extra for sprinkling on top), 4 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 large cooking apple, juice of 1/2 a lemon

Preheat the oven to 180’C, and grease a decent sized cake tin.

Mix together the soy flour, veg oil, caster sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl. You should use an electric whisk to do the mixing throughout as the cake mix needs to get quite airy.

Melt the margarine in the pan with the soy milk, and the whisk bit-by-bit into the sugar mixture. Sift in the flour, cinnamon and baking powder whilst continually mixing. Pour the mixture into cake tin and smooth the surface. It will be quite liquid for a vegan cake, don’t worry about it.

Peel and core the apples and slice them into thin slices. Keep the thin slices in a bowl of lemon for the time-being to stop the going brown. Once you have enough slices to cover the top of the cake, arrange them over the batter. They might sink a bit, but thats cool. Sprinkle the remaining sugar and cinnamon over the apples and bake in the oven for about 40 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean when pricked through.

        We haven’t tried it with spelt flour – I would recommend giving it a go!
