Vegan Apple cake slice

Baking with apples is one of my greatest pleasure, and a few years ago I came across this alternative to the standard apple pie, a vegan apple cake recipe, I baked it, and loved it ever since.

Being it a vegan recipe, it is perfect for anyone intolerant to dairy or eggs, and it tastes just as wonderful without them. On the contrary, if you don’t ave any problem with dairy and eggs, then you’ll find the non vegan ingredients in brackets.

This apple cake is a soft sponge with a rich taste thanks to the chocolate chips, and the spicy cinnamon notes: comfort food at its best!

Ingredients for my Vegan Apple Cake:

-225g of unsalted margarine or vegetable spread (Of butter for the non vegan option)

-175g soft light brown sugar – Demerara sugar works perfectly

– 300ml of oat drink (3 medium egg if you want to go for the non vegan option)

– 2 tbsp malt extract

– 225g wholemeal flour

– yeast

– 2tbsp milk (oat drink)

– 400g Royal Gala apples peeled and diced

– 2 Dessert apples peeled and tiny sliced

– ½ tbsp ground cinnamon

– 1 tbsp caster sugar

– 1-2 tbsp clear honey

– 100g of dark chocolate cut in small pieces

First preheat the oven to 170 C. Secondly beat the margarine (or the butter, if you are going for the non vegan version) and sugar together, until fluffy and light in color. Then gradually beat in the oat drink (or the eggs) little at a time.
