St. Patty’s Day – Brown Apple Cake

The Irish make great brown breads and cakes.  Here’s a traditional apple cake…. Vegan style.

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

5 tsp cornstarch

2 1/4 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp ground cloves

1/4 cup Earth Balance (butter substitute)

1/4 cup canola oil

4 medium Gala apples, peeled and diced

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

Egg Replacer for 2 eggs

2 Tbsp soy milk

2 tsp sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray 9″ springform pan with cooking spray.

Mix flour, cornstarch, soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves together in large bowl.  Rub in Earth Balance until mixture is crumbly. Mix in canola oil.  Add apples and brown sugar and mix well.  Whisk together egg replacer mixture and soy milk.  Stir into flour/apple mixture.  It will be heavy and thick.  Mix until everything is moist.

Spread batter evenly in pan.  Sprinkle top with sugar.  Bake for 35 minutes. When slightly cooled, run knife around rim and release sides of pan. Top with powdered sugar.  Serve with favorite vegan ice cream.

    WOW, you must have been reading my mind! I need a great dessert recipe and I have a ton of apples on hand…this will do nicely! I’ll write back with a critique after Monday evening…my “non-vegan” friends are coming over for dinner and they warned me about feeding them tree bark…little will they know!
