Fluffy apple crumble cake with cranberries

Soul food for cold days

An apple a day keeps the doctor away – I don’t know if this proverb actually counts if you turn your apple into cake, but let’s give it a try. So here’s the first recipe from last weekend’s cake invasion extravaganza: apple crumble cake with cranberries.  Thanks to my dad’s gardening efforts I’ve still got plenty of apples at home. So here’s all you need to be happy on a cold, rainy day:

For the cake base:

80 g of sugar

1 packet of vanilla sugar

100 g of margarine

1 tsp of egg replacer (like “no egg”, alternatively you can use flaxseed flour)

120 ml of organic soy milk (alternatively other plant-based milk)

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

250 g of all-purpose flour

1/2 pack of baking powder

a pinch of salt

For the crumble

1 big apple or 2-3 small apples, cut in slices

500 g of apple sauce (I used homemade apple sauce)

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

1/2 tsp of fresh vanilla (alternatively vanilla sugar)

70 g of margarine

100 g of all-purpose flour

3 TS of dried cranberries

75 g of sugar

1 TS of icing sugar

Get started: Mix the sugar and the margarine with a handheld mixer until it gets a bit bigger (Make sure that the margarine is not too hard, it works a lot better if you take it out of the fridge an hour before starting your preparation). Then add egg replacer, flour, baking powder, almond milk, sugar, vanilla sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Put it in a springform pan and preheat the oven (set it to 200 degrees celsius).

Put the apple sauce on top of the cake base and put the apple slices and cranberries on top (I placed them on the cake base in a circle, but that’s totally up to you). After that mix the rest of the crumble ingredients and put little bits of it on top of the cake.

Put your cake on the middle rack of your oven and bake it for about 40-50 minutes. Let it cool down a bit and sprinkle 1 TS of icing sugar on top. Serve it with coconut cream!
