German Apple Cake

German Apple Cake

A vegan version of the classic German Apple Cake, featuring a layer of moist cake topped with tart apples and smothered with sweet, toasted almonds.

For the Almond Topping:
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C
  2. Combine the flour and baking powder in a small bowl and set to one side.
  3. Whisk together the Oat Drink, sugar, linseed mixture, oil, vanilla, lemon zest, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add in the flour mix and whisk until combined into a thick batter.
  4. Pour the batter into a greased 9-inch round cake tin. Peel, core and slice the apples and place evenly over the top of the batter. Bake for 20 minutes.
  5. To make the almond topping, add the sugar, Oat Drink, coconut oil, and sliced almonds to a small saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Turn down the heat and let it simmer on low for 5 minutes.
  6. After 20 minutes, take the cake out of the oven and pour the hot almond mixture evenly over the top of the apples. Put it straight back in the oven for another 25 minutes.
  7. After 25 minutes, the topping should be golden brown and bubbling. Use a wooden skewer to test the cake and make sure that it’s baked. If the skewer doesn’t come out completely clean then allow it to bake for another 5 minutes.
  8. Once completely baked, allow to cool before slicing and serving.
