Vegan apple cake

A wacky and tasty vegan apple cake, with a lot of fruit, no fats, a little flour and sugar and few more ingredients.



Time of preparation

circa 1 hour

What did I use

2 large bowls, a round pan, a spoon, baking paper


1.5 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon + serving
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 mashed banana
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
3 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
Powdered sugar for serving

How did I do

I preheated the oven to 350°F. I covered with the baking paper the round pan.

In the large bowl, I whisked flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

In the other bowl,  I whisked the mashed banana with water, vanilla, and vinegar.

I poured wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mixed with a large spoon until just combined.  Batter was very thick, but the apples would release moisture as they bake.

I arranged some of the apples in a circular pattern to cover most of the bottom of the prepared cake pan. Then gently I folded in the remaining apples into the batter.

I spooned the batter into the pan and I baked for circa 45 minutes, or until the center is set and the cake is lightly browned on top. I rotated the cake halfway through baking time. Once cooled, run a knife around the edges to loosen the cake, and gently unmold so that the apple design was on top.

I dust with powdered sugar and cinnamon and served.

Buon appetito!
