This easy and delicious apple sauce cake is one of my all-time favourites. It’s vegan, gluten-free and naturally sweetened. I love having this cake for breakfast or as a quick snack in the afternoon. Absolutely delicious with some extra apple sauce on top, maple syrup or some caramelised apples. I can guarantee this cake is a crowd pleaser and you won’t believe how easy it is to make.
For this recipe, I used a flax egg. Simply combine two tablespoons of ground flaxseeds and 100 ml of water. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes to thicken. From here, you can add the flax egg to your recipe just as you would an egg.
