Words cannot describe how unbelievably delicious this Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Apple Bundt Cake tastes!
When I spied the recipe in my Fall 2011 Allergic Living Magazine…I knew I had to bake it!
I headed over to Macmillan’s Orchards to get their opinion on the perfect apples to use. The verdict: Spy apples. apparently they are good to bake in pies and cakes because they do not release a lot of water, therefore, they do not make your baked dish soggy. Perfect…I’ll take 4…thank you.
I made a few adaptions, as usual, to meet our specific tastes and allergen needs…and voila…the most delicious Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Apple Bundt Cake was born!
Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Apple Bundt Cake
4 large apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced (preferably Spy)
1/2 cup Earth Balance (for a soy free recipe use their soy free brand)
1 cup Demerara sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup canola oil
1/4 cup applesauce
2 tbsp water
1 cup rice milk
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp pure vanilla
In a medium saucepan, melt the Earth Balance, add the Demerara sugar and heat until boiling while stirring.
Pour half the caramel in a greased bundt pan dusted with flour.
Mix half of the sliced apples with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Place them over the caramel, overlapping.
Chop remaining sliced apples and mix with remaining 1/4 tsp of cinnamon and stir into remaining caramel. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a liquid measure, mix together the rice milk and vinegar and let sit 5 minutes.
In another bowl, mix together the sugar, oil, applesauce, water, and vanilla. Add the milk and vinegar mixture.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until combined.
Cover the apples in the bundt pan with 2/3 of the batter.
Top with the apple/caramel mixture.
Cover with the remaining batter.
Bake 350 F for 1 hour.
Let cool for 20 minutes in bundt pan before inverting on a platter.
Slice and Enjoy!
Simply divine while still warm…even better the next day!
Michael declared that this cake is really close to his favourite: Apple Kuchen.
Even Matthew was smitten with this version of an Apple Cake!
