This vegan Apple Cake recipe utilizes applesauce and a touch of apple cider vinegar, brown rice syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice to bring out the best apple flavors. It pairs perfectly with Cream Cheese Frosting or Creamy Cashew Cream Cheese Frosting.
6 Tablespoons non-dairy milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 ¼ cup all purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoon non-aluminum baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¾ cup apple sauce
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon allspice
1 Tablespoon brown rice syrup
Preheat oven to 350F (177C). In a medium size bowl, whisk non-dairy milk the with apple cider vinegar and set aside for 5 to 10 minutes so it lightly curdles.
In a medium size mixing bowl whisk together the all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the apple sauce, sugar, vanilla extract, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, brown rice syrup and the non-dairy milk apple cider mixture.
Add the flour mixture to the mixing bowl containing the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
Pour mixture into an oiled 8 inch round cake pan and bake for about 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
