I can guarantee that you will love this apple pie. If you don't, I'll personally wash your clothes for a month*! Read on to find out what all the fuss is about.

We already have one recipe for an apple pie here on the blog, but we love apples so much that we felt you can never have too many! This time I decided to take a crack at making an apple cake (hence the name of the recipe), but you can be the judge of whether I succeeded or not.

We made this recipe way back in November, but have been sitting on it, because I've been to tired or lazy to write the recipe. We had a long phase of eating apples with almost every meal, after we got a huuuge bunch of great, fresh apples from our friends countryside cabin, during which I think I might have gotten an overdose. 

So I think I subconsciously haven't wanted to write the recipe, because I didn't want to think about apples anymore. How could anyone every think too much apples was a thing?? I apologies for my foolishness. And let's get on with the recipe!

This is a simple sugar free apple recipe, started out as an experiment to make an apple cake that was slightly fluffier and juicier than the ones we usually make, and well, I'm not entirely sure if I succeeded in that department -- but it doesn't matter, because it was tasty as hell! It might have been down to the amazing apples we'd received, but I think I'll just take the credit instead.

So here you go, a simple sugar free apple cake!

  • 6 medium sized apples

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 dl oat-milk of your choice

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

  • 4 dl flour (we used graham flour)

  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • 0,5 tsp powdered vanilla

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  1. Turn your oven on to 200°C
  2. Peel and de-seed four of the apples and chop them into small cubes (set aside the two remaining apples for later)
  3. Whisk the two eggs in a bowl until they're fluffy, then add the cubed apples, milk, honey and coconut oil, and blend thoroughly
  4. Combine all the dry ingredients in another bowl and then add into the egg and apple mixture
  5. Blend everything gently with a wooden spoon
  6. Pour the mixture into a springform pan (25-30cm in diameter) that you've lined with baking paper
  7. Slice the remaining two apples into thin wedges and place them on top of the cake in any way you like
  8. Bake the cake in the oven at 200°C for 40-45min
  9. Take the cake out, sprinkle with cinnamon and let it sit for 5-10min before serving
  10. Serve with homemade apple-sauce, or if you're feeling indulgent, vanilla ice-cream
  11. Enjoy!

We're pretty pleased with how it turned and hope you are as well! Remember, it's not hard baking without sugar, especially if you use honey as a sweetener or work with really great and super sweet apples. Have fun! And let us know if you end up making our cake, maybe you'll make it with whatever fruit is in season near you!
