German Apple Cake

German Apple Cake
The Joy of Vegan Baking CB by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

3            apples, peeled and cut into slices
1/2         cup nondairy butter
1/2         cup granulated sugar
1/2         cup unsweetened applesauce
2            tablespoons nondairy milk
1 & 1/2   unbleached all-purpose flour
1 & 1/2   teaspoons baking powder


1/4            cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
1/2            teaspoon cinnamon
1/2            teaspoon ground ginger

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9” spring form pan.

To make the cake, cook the apples in a little bit of water on the stove or in microwave until they’re just a little soft but not mushy.  If using micro, no longer than 1 & 1/2 minutes.)  Set aside

With an electric hand mixer or by hand using a wooden spoon, cream together the butter, and sugar.  Add the applesauce and non dairy milk.  Finally, add the flour and baking powder, and stir until just combined.

Add the batter to the prepared pan, and arrange the apple slices in a circle on top of the cake.

To make the topping, mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon, and ginger, and sprinkle over the apples, covering the top of the cake.

Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes before unmolding from the cake pan.

****To make this cake completely fat-free, use 1 cup applesauce and eliminate the non dairy butter.
