Easy vegan apple cake

  • SHARE
It's apple season! So what better way to utilise them than by making a vegan apple cake. It tastes amazing and the combination of apples and cinnamon is heavenly. The best is it's super easy to make, even if you have never baked before. All ingredients are available in your local supermarket. Preparations should only take 10-15 minutes. The perfect cake to have with coffee!


I've been a big fan of apples since I was a little boy. My late granny swore by apples and praised their nutritional value. She even had a few apple trees in her garden. I loved going over to hers and picking apples direcly from the trees. She also made lots of sweet apple dishes. Like battered apples, apple fritters apple compote and of course apple cakes (my mouth is watering writing this).


So I wanted to continue the tradition and I came up with my own version of a vegan apple cake. It's apple season now in autumn, but I think it's a cake that can be eaten all year round. It doesn't feel to heavy, it fluffy, yet moist and it doesn't need any cream on the side. I baked it for a client meeting the other day and everyone loved it.

If you want this vegan apple cake to have more apple in it then cut thinner slices and arrange them in another star shape in the middle.

Vegan crème brûlée - easy to make and low fat

This was another of the challenges I set myself, to create a vegan crème brûlée. It has no eggs, no dairy, is gluten-free and super easy to make. A perfect dessert for a special occasion and it is low in fat as well. The original is full of fat and my vegan version is much lighter, yet full of flavour.

I've been looking forward to making something vegan for Halloween for ages! And I brainstormed (pardon the pun) over and over again until I came up with the idea to make vegan brain cupcakes. It was so much fun, they tasted amazing and will definitely a talking point at any party they are served.
