Vegan Irish Apple Cake


Seemingly simple, but lovely all the same. This apple cake with streusel will end your meal on a high note with a nice cup of coffee.



1/3 cup cubed cold vegan butter

½ cup brown sugar

1 cup Flour

Pinch salt


1/2 cup butter

½ cup Sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 tbsp ground flax mixed with ½ cup almond milk

1 cup flour

¼ tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

Pinch of salt

2 apples, peeled and thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Make your streusel:

Combine flour, sugar and salt and then rub cold butter cubes in with your fingers until mixture is coarse and sandy. Place in refrigerator.

Make your cake batter:

Cream your vegan butter and sugar together. Add vanilla and flax egg and milk.

Separately, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

Add dry ingredients to wet.

Pour batter into an 8” silicone cake pan (if not using silicone, spray cake pan with cooking spray). Lay sliced apples over top. Cover with reserved streusel.

Bake for about one hour, or until top is golden brown.
