Dairy Free Apple Cake

Serves 12
Time 1 hour 30 minutes


4 extra-large eggs

1 cup brown sugar 

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 medium apples, Granny Smith

1 cup self-raising flour 

1 tsp baking powder

½ lemon, zest

¼ cup flaked almonds

2 tbsp brown sugar 

2 tbsp honey


To serve 

Icing sugar

Dairy-free ice cream


Preheat the oven to 175°C fan-forced. 

Peel and core the apples. Cut the apples into 1-inch pieces. 

Use a whisk to combine the eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until it comes together and is light and fluffy. Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl, and use a spatula to fold through. Add the lemon zest and apples, and fold through the batter. 

Line a baking dish with baking paper. Pour the batter over the apples in the baking dish. Top with almonds, brown sugar and honey. 

Bake for 40-50 minutes until golden brown and firm on top, 

Allow the cake to cool in the tray before serving. 

Dust with icing sugar and serve with a generous spoonful of dairy-free ice cream.
