German Apple Cake


This cake is delicious and got a thumbs up from my Grandad...so it must be good! I got the recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking but made a few wee changes.

  • 4 apples, peeled and cut into slices
  • 1/2 cup soya butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and lightly grease a cake tin with soya butter
  2. Put the apples in a microwaveable dish and cover with water. Place in the microwave and cook for 1-1 1/2 minutes (no longer) until they are soft. Drain and set aside.
  3. Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the apple sauce, vanilla, almond (if using) and soy milk and stir until combined
  4. Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix together
  5. Add the batter to the greased cake tin and arrange the apple slices on top of the cake.
  6. Mix together the brown sugar cinnamon and ginger and sprinkle on top of the cake.
  7. Bake for 30-45 minutes until a knife goes into the center of the cake and comes out clean. Leave to cool before removing the cake from the pan.
  8. Best served with a scoop of vanilla Swedish Glace!
