Last week I made this simple and moist cake with bits of apple baked into it. It’s great to have on hand for unexpected guests, but it’s even better for counteracting a ‘hangry’ state (a state of anger caused by lack of food) when you feel one coming on ; ) And given your reactions on social media, it’s clear you really, really wanted the recipe… So, here you go! I’ve fine-tuned it a bit and there you go. Enjoy! And, will you let me know what you think?
2 - 3 days in an airtight container in the fridge or max. 3 months in the freezer.
small loaf pan (20 x 10 cm)
Food processor to mix (optional)
325 g (2 ½ cups) whole grain flour (I like spelt or oat flour)
25 g (scant ¼ cup) coconut blossom sugar (optional)
1 tsp baking soda
a pinch of sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
a pinch of nutmeg
150 ml (2/3 cup) oat milk, or other plant-based milk of choice
juice of ½ lemon
60 ml (¼ cup) (refined) olive oil
1 tsp vanilla (unsweetened)
80 ml (1/3 cup) applesauce (unsweetened)
small handful of raisins and/or nuts (optional)
100 g (3.5 oz.) apple, peeled and finely chopped
Preheat the oven to 180C. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, stir well and add the remainder of the ingredients. Grease the baking tin with a bit of oil or line in with parchment. Transfer the cake batter to the baking tin. Bake in a preheated oven for 45-50 minutes. Remove from the oven, allow to cool and enjoy! It’s delicious served with nut butter.
