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.

¾ cup apple sauce
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt

1 Tablespoon brown rice syrup

1) Curdle the non-dairy milk

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.

3) Mix together the flavor building ingredients

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. 

4) Mix the batter together

Add the flour mixture to the mixing bowl containing the wet ingredients and mix until combined.

5) Bake the vegan apple cake to perfection

Pour mixture into an oiled 8 inch round cake pan and bake for about 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. This recipe makes one 8 inch Vegan Apple Cake.

Nice cake

I don't know what brown rice syrup is, I used golden syrup instead. And it took 40 minutes to bake, not 25. And the cider/coconut milk mixture did not curdle. However, it was a very nice cake and received many compliments.

Vegan Apple Cake

I have added about 1 cup chopped apple and substituted 3/4 cup shredded apple for the applesauce....added a bit more cinnamon and left out the nutmeg! The cake is cooling now and will return later to comment on the taste and texture. Thanks so much for a jumping off place!

Best appel cake ever!

I followed the recipe, I just used black molasse to replace the rice sirop.

It was so soft and tender, rich in taste with a great "christmas" feeling to it (thanks to the spices). Cannot ask for more, but next time I would have to double the quantities and drop little piece of apple to try that out!

Thanks for sharing this one and all the others Mattie!
