Ingredients (makes one 8 inch cake, 8 slices):

  • 50 g sugar
  • 70 g flour
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 500 g peeled and sliced apples
  • 100 ml soy milk (or almond milk)
  • 20 g melted coconut oil
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla paste
  • zest of 1 organic lemon

In a bowl of your stand mixer beat up eggs and sugar until light in color

In a bowl melt the coconut oil then add the milk

Add dry and wet ingredients into the bowl with the eggs and gently mix everything together. You should get a light and pourable batter. Slice up the apples VERY thin and add them to the batter. Gently fold them in to avoid braking them.

With a little extra coconut oil, grease a pan and dust it with flour. Pour the cake mixture in the pan, level it.

Bake the cake in pre-heated oven at 180 C for about 40 min. Remove from the oven and allow to cool down completely before removing it from the form.

Dust it with some powdered sugar, slice it and serve it up.

This cake is SO moist, sweet and light.

Have it for breakfast, snack, Sunday dessert!
