Apple Cake (Vegan)

This moist apple cake is a good way to use up left-over apples or other seasonal fruit. If you grown your own apples, like I do, use up your wind-fall or less-than-perfect fruits with this recipe.
  • 4 eating apples, peeled, cored and grated 
  • 200g self-raising flour 
  • 100g dairy free spread
  • 100g sugar
  • 100g dried fruit (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice 
  • 2-3 tbsp water or dairy-free milk
  • 1 tbsp demerara sugar
Pre-heat oven to 180C/ Fan 170C/ Gas 4/350F
Cream the spread and sugar.
Mix in the remaining ingredients (except the demerara sugar) adding just enough water/milk to make a thick cake mixture.
Spoon into a greased and lined 8"/20cm x 6"/15cm tin (or a 7-8" round tin) and flatten with a spatula or spoon.
Sprinkle with the demerara sugar and a little extra cinnamon. 
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch.
Cool in the tin and cut into slices before turning out.
Eat warm or cold.

Suitable for freezing.

    Made this today and it was really nice. I have eaten loads of it already. The only thing was it could have done with a bit less apple as it was still quite wet and I cooked it for 55 minutes in the end. I liked it because it wasn't too sweet but if you want a sweet cake then I think cream cheese frosting or something would be good.

    1. I'm glad you liked the cake, Christina. I used quite small eating apples, so I'll weigh them next time and add that to the recipe.


Thanks very much for your comment. I love hearing your opinions, so please rest assured that genuine comments and competition entries will be visible after approval. This may take 24-48 hours, depending on how hectic my work/home life is at the time!
