2 cups spelt or whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 cup vegan maple syrup
1/2 cup unrefined corn oil
1 cup apples, diced
1/3 cup apple juice Topping:
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons brown rice syrup or maple syrup
1 teaspoon unrefined corn oil
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and lightly grease an 8" springform pan. Place dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
2. Mix wet ingredients together and add to dry. Mix. Place in prepared pan.
3. For topping, mix all ingredients together and spread evenly over cake. (You may have to wet fingers to spread mixture evenly.)
4. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Cool and serve.
This recipe works equally well with pears. Just add 1 teaspoon ginger to cake and 1/2 teaspoon ginger to topping. Instead of above topping, spread with favorite jam or apple butter and put nuts in cake.
