Vegan Apple Cake!
Have lots off apples? Apples are finally coming back into season and we found ourselves with a whole lot of them.
I made a cake for a community event using some of the granny smiths, and several people asked if the recipe was up on the blog.
Well, it WASN'T, but now it is!
Vegan Apple Cake
2 T. ground flaxseed + 1/4 cup boiling water (or 1 egg if you don't need it to be vegan)
1/4 cup oil
1 c. soy milk or orange juice or water + 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 c. flour (I used whole spelt flour. wheat flour - white or whole - works fine)
2/3 c. sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1.5 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 granny smith apples, cored and diced (peeling optional)
Mix 2 T. ground flasxeed with the boiling water, allow to cool for 10 min.
Add oil, sugar, cinnamon, and your choice of liquid. mix well.
Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well - you'll need a mixer or a whisk.
Fold in apples.
Fill 2 loaf pans and bake at 180 C (about 350 F) for about 50 min. Check with a toothpick to be sure it's done.
Allow to cool before cutting.
It was a big hit in my house! Please be sure to tell me what you think if you try it!
(Sorry no pics - will try to get one up here next time!)
