Vegan Apple Spice Cake


Vegan Apple Spice Cake

When you think of Fall, you start thinking about apples and spices. This cake is sooo good! It is moist, has loads of lovely apple-nuts-spice flavor, and is topped with creamy maple buttercream. The recipe makes a 2 layer cake. I made mine in a 7 x 11 cake pan, so it was one layer (which was easier – just bake it for a longer time – 25-30 minutes).

For the Cake:

1 ¼ cup unsweetened soy or almond milk
2 tsp apple cider vinegar

2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp allspice
½ tsp ginger
½ tsp sea salt

1 cup shredded apple (I needed 1 medium apple cut into pieces, and used my mini food
processor to shred it. Or you can use a grater.)

1/3 cup coconut oil
1 cup brown sugar
½ Tbs. molasses
2 tsp vanilla

¾ cup walnuts or pecans, roughly chopped

For the Maple Buttercream Frosting:

3 cups powdered sugar
8 Tbs vegan butter, room temperature
6 Tbs maple syrup

To Make the Cake:

– Preheat oven to 350 F.
– Grease two 8 inch round pans with oil. (Or use a 7 x 11 pan)
– Mix the milk and cider vinegar together.
– In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.
– In a third separate bowl, beat the coconut oil, brown sugar, molasses, and vanilla together.
– Add the dry ingredients, the milk/vinegar, and the apple to the oil/sugar mixture. Mix until
combined, and then add the nuts. Mix briefly to incorporate the nuts.
– Pour into the cake pans or 7 x 11 pan. Bake the rounds 18-20 minutes, or the 7 x 11 for 25-30
minutes. The cake is done when an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

To Make the Frosting:

– Beat all the ingredients until smooth. Spread onto the cooled cake layers. (Note: The 7 x
11 cake only needed half the frosting recipe.)
