Vegan Fruit Cake: A Delicious Recipe
Did you know that in vegan bakeries, it's possible to substitute butter with applesauce without sacrificing the moist texture of cakes? This vegan fruit cake recipe is a perfect example. It's a cake made with apple or pear sauce, enhanced with chunks of apples and raisins for a truly impressive indulgent result!
Here are the necessary ingredients to prepare a vegan Fruit Cake for 6 people:
150 g of flour.
One packet of baking powder.
50 g of sugar.
300 g of apple-pear sauce.
7 cl of olive oil.
2 small apples.
One packet of vanilla sugar.
A handful of raisins.
2 tablespoons of amber rum.
25 g of vegetable margarine.
Preparation of the dough
This Fruit Cake is vegan and very easy to prepare. This recipe is also cost-effective as it requires no eggs, milk, or butter to make the batter.
1- In a mixing bowl, combine the flour with the baking powder and sugar.
2- Stir in the apple-pear sauce and mix well.
3- Add the oil and mix until the batter is smooth.
Preparation of the filling
For this vegan fruit cake recipe, I've chosen a filling made with sultanas and sautéed diced apples. However, feel free to use candied fruit or other dried fruits such as cranberries or dried apricots.
1- Rinse the sultanas under cold running water.
2- Let them soak in a bowl of warm water with a small glass of amber rum.
3- Meanwhile, peel the apples and cut them into small cubes.
4- Sauté them in a pan with a knob of vegetable margarine. Add vanilla sugar.
5- Mix the drained sultanas and the cooked apple cubes into the batter.
Baking the cake
1- Preheat your oven to 350°F (Gas Mark 6).
2- Grease a cake pan with a dab of plant-based margarine before pouring in the batter.
3- Bake the vegan fruit cake for about 40 minutes. A knife inserted into the center of the cake should come out clean.
4- Allow it to cool slightly before unmolding it onto a serving dish.
Wait until the vegan fruit cake has completely cooled before slicing it. When it's hot, it might crumble during cutting because it's really very soft.
Enjoy your meal!
