Vegan apple cake

Vegan apple cake

Remember grandma’s apple pie? As a little kid I loved hanging out at my grandparents’ place. My grandmother was always busy in the kitchen and her pie has the real highlight of every visit. That smell when it would come fresh out of the oven, simply divine! She would cut of a big piece when the cake was still warm, just for me. So when I grew up I just had to have that recipe. As I started eating more vegan I wanted to tweak it to my likings, so I could serve it to all my friends. This ended up in lots of experimenting but eventually I managed to perfect it into a truly amazing cake. It fills your heart with love and is totally free from. Just give it a try!
