Apple Snacking Cake {plant based/vegan friendly}

Are you stuck for a delicious dessert idea that will please everyone?

Including your vegan family and friends, or anyone who’s simply not eating eggs or dairy?

That’s what I needed this past week, while helping my vegan daughter and son-in-law move into their new condo.

Because, let’s face it, there’s nothing quite like the smell of something yummy baking in the oven to make a new place feel like home.

I came across a great recipe on Pinterest. With some tweaking and additions, I created my own version.

We all loved it!

And if you don’t need it to be vegan, just use regular milk and butter. Same delicious results.

Either way, this is a simple one bowl cake that comes together quickly without the need for a mixer.

The hardest part about baking this cake is peeling the apples and waiting for it to bake…

Enjoy this cake plain, or fancy it up topped with a scoop of ice cream, Cool Whip or whipped cream, which by the way are all available in vegan versions and are equally delicious! (trust me they are and I am a big dairy lover!)

Apple Snacking Cake (vegan)

Servings: 15


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar packed
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup oat milk (any variety)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 unsweetened apple sauce snacking cup (or about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 medium size apples (any variety you like) cored, peeled and chopped into small chunks
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tbsp butter (vegan butter or margarine) melted
  • 1 tps ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup sugar (white or brown)


  • Preheat oven to 325 F.
  • Add flour to a large mixing bowl, then stir in sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt.
  • Add oat milk, vanilla, vinegar, apple sauce and oil.
    Stir together until well combined.
  • Fold in the apples and walnuts.
  • Lightly butter a 9"x 13" baking pan and line bottom with parchment paper.
  • Pour batter into baking pan and spread out evenly.
  • In a small bowl mix together topping ingredients: sugar, cinnamon and melted butter.
    Sprinkle this mixture on top of cake batter.
  • Bake cake for about 40 minutes. (I used a dark non stick baking pan, so if using corning ware baking pans you may need another 5-10 minutes) (if toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean your cake is ready).
  • Cool cake for at least 15 minutes before cutting.
    Serve warm or at room temperature, top with icing sugar or a scoop of ice cream of your choice.


*if you are not vegan, just use regular milk and butter for the same delicious results
