Amazingly Easy Vegan Apple Cake you say? Central Park Cafe’s Sophie Downer has the perfect recipe 

I’ve been trying out a few vegan recipes lately, very hit and miss! But this apple cake is so quick and easy to assemble and bake, and has consistently great results.I often switch up the apples too, you can use plums, pears, rhubarb… I’m trying new variations all the time.

Dry Ingredients
200g self raising flour
100g Caster Sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 apples, chopped or sliced

Wet Ingredients
150 ml oat milk
80g sunflower oil
1 tbsp cider vinegar

Pre-heat your oven to 160°C 

Have your dry ingredients in one bowl, and the wet ingredients in another, and your fruit chopped or sliced ready, and an 8” loose based tin lined with parchment and a little oil.Just mix the wet and dry ingredients together in a bowl with a wooden spoon or spatula, tip into the baking tin, arrange your fruit on top in whatever way you think looks beautiful, (the batter will rise up around your fruit) then bake for 20 to 30 mins, or until a skewer can be inserted in the centre of the cake and come out with no trace of batter. Serve warm with ice cream, or, I like it cooled with a cup of tea.
