Difficulty Easy


  • Round cake pan, diameter 24 cm
  • Baking paper


  • 150 g All-purpose flour
  • 150 g Manitoba flour
  • 50 g Brown sugar
  • 1 pinch Cinnamon
  • 250 ml Soy milk with no-sugar
  • 50 ml Sunflower oil
  • 9 g Cream of tartar
  • 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Apples
  • 1 Lemon, juice and zest
  • 1 pinch Fine salt


  • Prepare the following ingredients and then set them aside.
    Grate the lemon zest.
    Peel and core the apples. Dice one apple and put into a bowl with the juice of half a lemon.
    Slice the other one, place the slices on a plate and season them with the juice of the remaining lemon.
  • Preheatthe oven to 180°C
  • To a bowl add the following ingredients: the two sifted flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, fine salt and diced apple (keep out the lemon juice). Mix well.
  • To another bowl add the following ingredients: soy milk, sunflower oil and lemon zest. Mix well.
  • Combine all the ingredients in a single bowl and stir until just combined in a soft batter.
  • Take a large glass, put the apple cider vinegar and cream of tartar, mix and pour quickly over the batter. Stir well.
  • Pour the batter into the round cake pan (line the bottom with baking paper).
  • Decorate the surface of the cake, as you prefer, with the apple slices (remove the lemon juice).
  • Bake in a preheated oven on 180°C. for 45 minutes.


Always do the toothpick test to see if the cake is cooked. It still valid! I know, once removed from the oven it will be soft, don’t worry, let it cool well at room temperature and then, place it in the fridge for few hours.
Variation: sometime my beloved soy kefir gives its best producing a quantity that goes beyond what I normally take for breakfast. So, I take advantage of this by using the extra soy kefir to make a vegan apple cake! From the recipe above replace the 250 ml of soy milk with 270 g of soy kefir and the 50 ml of sunflower oil with two tablespoons of sunflower oil.
A delight!
