Apple Lover's Apple Cake

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

Modified from a Patricia Wells recipe in The Paris Cookbook called Gateau aux Pommes de la Reine des Pommes, this cake has tons of apple chunks barely bound together by a spelt and flax batter. After baking almost all the way through, a topping of coconut oil, raw sugar and beaten egg gets poured on for a gossamer-thin crisp element. I used camelina oil and Amoré Almonds + Dairy beverage for a delicious nutty element in the batter, and while the cake practically fell apart it was delicious!

Ingredients

    ¼ cup ground flaxseed
    ½ cup hot apple tea (or water)
    ⅔ cup spelt or whole wheat flour
    ⅓ cup cup-for-cup stevia
    1 tbsp baking powder
    Pinch nutmeg
    pinch sea salt
    1 tsp vanilla
    2 tbsp camelina oil (I used Karlene’s Veg-licious Camelina Oil)
    ⅓ cup plain Amoré Almonds + Dairy beverage (or unsweetened almond milk)
    5 large apples, peeled and chopped

    Topping:
    ⅓ cup sugar
    1 large egg, beaten well
    3 tbsp melted coconut oil (or butter)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400F and grease a 9-inch springform pan.
Whisk together the flaxseed and tea in a small dish. Set aside for 10 minutes.
Whisk together the flour, stevia, baking powder, and sea salt.
Add the vanilla, oil, and milk, followed by the flax mixture, stirring until well blended.
Add the apples and stir to thoroughly coat them with the batter.
Bake until fairly firm and golden, about 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the topping: In a small bowl, combine the sugar, egg, and melted coconut oil. Set aside.
Remove the cake from the oven and pour the topping mixture over it. Return the cake to the oven and bake 20 minutes longer.
Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove the sides and cool completely.

Serving Size: Makes one 9-inch springform pan, 12 slices
