  • 3 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 flax eggs 3 tablespoons ground flaxseeds soaked in 6 tablespoons of water for 5 minutes
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups grated apples
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2-3 small apples, sliced
  • more cinnamon, to sprinkle


  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F.
  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients (except for the sliced apples) and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined. Grease a 11 inch round springform pan with vegan butter or margarine.
  • Pour the batter into the pan. Arrange the sliced apples in circles on top and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 40 minutes.
  • Let the cake cool down before you cut it. Enjoy!


  • I used a 11-inch round springform pan for this vegan apple cake. 
  • I recommend Honeycrisp, Gala, or Fuji apples for this recipe. You could also use a combination of different apples. 
  • If you want to serve this apple cake for a fancier occasion, add some vegan vanilla ice cream and homemade vegan whipped cream on top. 
  • Stored in an airtight container in the fridge, this cake will last 4-5 days. It's important to store it in the fridge as the apples will go bad quickly if it's stored at room temperature. 
  • This cake freezes really well. Make sure to let it cool down completely before freezing it. You could either freeze it in a freezer-safe container or in a freezer bag for up to 3 months.
