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.

Tasting Tips

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!
