This vegan apple cake is soft, moist, and full of fresh sliced apples. It's a 1-bowleasy recipe, made with simple ingredients. You won't believe how soft and easy this cake is. We love it so much that we even made a whole-wheat one and one filled with mouthwatering vegan custard.
As a first step, oil your pan and dust it with flour. This will prevent the cake from sticking. Then preheat the oven to 360F or 180C.In a bowl, add theyogurt, sugar, plantmilk and oil. Whisk till the ingredients are well mixed together. At this stage you can also add your aromas and spices if want to.
Now sift the flour and the baking powder and add them to the bowl with the liquid, ⅓ at the time, while mixing with a spatula.TIP: try to mix with a circular movement from bottom to top of the bowl, like if you are trying to incorporate air into the dough. This will make the cake lighter. Do not over-mix or your cake will get heavy.
When the ingredients are well incorporated add small apple pieces from 1 apple. If you apple is small you can add up to 2 apples. Apples should be peeled. Mix with the spatula until the apple pieces are well incorporated into the batter.
Now pour the cake batter into the cake pan and cover the top of the cake with apple wedges. We do a circular pattern, overlapping the wedges a bit. Then sprinkle the apples with 1 to 2 tbsp of sugar or cinnamon sugar.
Bake the cake at 180C / 360 F for 1 hour. Take out of the oven, let cool for at least 1 hour. Then sprinkle with some powdered sugar if you want.TIP: bake on a baking rack, not on a baking tray, because the tray will get too hot and might overcook the base of the cake.
If you can, use a digital scale to measure the ingredients by weight. This way you'll get the best results.We usecalculateme.com to convert grams to US volume measurements. We believe they have the most accurate conversion algorithm. If you must use measuring cups and spoons, then use the "spoon and level" method.That is, spoon the ingredients into the measuring cup. Then level the excess with a knife, which means that a tablespoon or a cup has a level top, not a big round hill in the center and valleys along the edges.
