My son absolutely adores it ! He insisted to take it to the Bake Sale at school where it was a great success :)

  • 3-4 apples - I used pink lady apples (approx. 180 grs each )
  • 130 grs vegan butter, unsalted,cut in pieces, plus extra for greasing
  • 3 vegan eggs
  • 125 grs caster sugar
  • 200grs plain flour
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Icing sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 180 C. Grease a round cake tin (26-28 cms) and set aside.
Cut apples in quarters and remove core and seeds. With a sharp knife, make parallel incisions on the outside of the apple, cutting down but taking care not to cut completely through. Set apple quarters aside.
Place vegan butter and egg replacement, sugar, flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl and mix until all ingredients are well combined. Pour mixture into cake tin and spread evenly. Place reserved apple quarters on top, one next to each other, with incisions facing up.
Bake for 30-40 minutes (180 C) until a skewer inserted in the centre of cake comes out clean. Allow cake to cool in tin for approx.10 mins before transferring to a serving plate. Dust top of cake with icing sugar before serving.
