apple pie coffee cake

“i don’t have any eggs, but i want to bake cake!” – in such cases it is a good idea to check for cakes at vegan yum yum. i ended up with the apple pie coffee cake, modified it a bit here and there (added almonds and actually de-veganized it by using dairy products instead of soy milk …) and here is my version:


apple filling

  • 800g apples
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 100ml orange juice + 3 tbsp
  • 2 tsp corn starch


  • 200g flour
  • 60g ground almonds
  • 130g sugar
  • 1.5 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 50ml plain yoghurt
  • 70ml heavy cream
  • 60ml milk
  • 100ml sun flower oil

for sprinkling

  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

to prepare the  filling, peel, core and chop the apples. sprinkle with sugar and set aside for a few minutes. in a large pan melt butter and slowly cook the apples in it for about 10 minutes. lid should be covered. then add orange juice (i guess apple juice would be better, but i didn’t have any at hand) and boil for about 2 minutes. mix corn starch with 2-3 tbsp cold orange juice, stir in and boil again for 1-2 minutes. the filling should thicken now and can be set aside.

for the batter mix in a large bowl flour, ground almonds, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and sea salt. in another bowl mix plain yoghurt, heavy cream and milk (at whatever ratio of this ingredients your fridge allows, of course you may also want to switch to the vegan original by using soy milk) and sun flower oil. pour over the flour mix and stir a few times. spread a bit more than half of the batter in a greased sprinform tin (mine is 26cm in diameter), spread apple filling on top of it, then spoon remaining batter on top of the cake, the apple filling should still be visible though.

mix sugar and cinammon and sprinkle on the cake, bake at 175° for 30 minutes, reduce heat to 160° and bake for 10 minutes, then reduce to 150° and bake for another ten minutes.  (this was how it worked for me, but check for instructions on baking time also the original recipe.)

the cake just vanished during one afternoon coffee… and of course it is always a good idea to visit vegan yum yum, also without lacking any ingredients.

  1. Do you happen to have a slcie of this so I can see the inside? I noticed you had different baking times. how did you come by them? I saw that the other recipe had 80-90m baking time. Did you cover yours with foil at any time? I am sure this would be good with blackberry or peach pie filling also. Have you tried any others?

  2. my cake looked pretty much like the original, except the layers were a bit thinner – that’s why i needed less baking time. i did not cover it with foil. and no, i did not yet try any other filling, but i may give it a shot 🙂
