Vegan Cinnamon Apple Cake

Enjoy this vegan apple cake with breakfast or as a dessert.  This healthy alternative to traditional sugary teacakes has a nice autumn flavor and goes well with a warm mug of apple cider. 

  • Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour

  • 2 ½ tablespoons baking powder

  • ¾ cup raw sugar

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • ½ cup orange juice

  • ½ cup walnuts

  • 2 small apples, grated

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 drop Cinnamon Bark oil Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly coat cake tin with olive oil.

  2. Juice orange in bowl and set aside.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, ground cinnamon, and baking powder. Set aside.

  4. Grate the apples. Set aside.

  5. In a large bowl, add sugar, olive oil, and Cinnamon Bark oil. Mix together using a handheld or free-standing mixer.

  6. Add the flour mix and the orange juice to a bowl with sugar and oil alternatively and keep mixing.

  7. Add the apples and the walnuts and fold in gently with a spoon until just combined.

  8. Pour the mixture into baking dish and bake for 45 minutes (or until a toothpick can be inserted and removed clean). Slice and enjoy.

Tip: The mixture will look a little dry until after the apples are added. This cake is best right out of the oven, but is good for a week.
