Prep Time:

20 minutes

Cook Time:

1 hour -1 hour 15





About the Recipe


2 flax eggs (2tbs ground flax seed mixed with 6tbs water, allow to stand for 10 minutes)

140g vegan butter

1tsp vanilla extract

2tbs plant-milk (e.g. soya milk)

140g caster sugar

80g gluten-free plain flour

90g ground almonds

1tsp baking powder

2tsp ground cinnamon (1tsp for the cake, 1tsp for the apples)

1tsp caster sugar

1 eating apple, cored and sliced thinly


  1. Preheat the oven to 175C, gas mark 4, fan oven 160C. Grease and base line an 18cm cake tin.

  2. Melt the vegan butter in a large saucepan and leave to cool.

  3. Mix the flour, ground almonds, baking powder and 1tsp cinnamon together in a bowl.

  4. Stir the flax eggs, caster sugar, vanilla extract and milk into the melted butter in the saucepan.

  5. Add the flour mix to the saucepan, beat well until a smooth batter forms, pour into the prepared cake tin.

  6. Arrange the sliced apples in a circular pattern on top of the cake mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon and caster sugar.

  7. Bake for 1hour-1 hour 15 minutes, until a skewer or knife inserted into the cake comes out clean. You may want to cover with foil for the last 30 minutes if the apples look too brown!

  8. Serve warm, dusted with icing sugar if desired. Delicious with ice cream, oat or soya cream.
