Healthy Apple Cake

Healthy apple cake with buttermilk

5 from 1 reviews

A cross between a cake and a muffin, this wholesome snack is naturally sweetened and and full of the flavour of apples, cinnamon and nuts. Frosted with a caramel date glaze, and it turns into a healthy dessert.




  1. If using gluten free flour, I recommend soaking and fermenting the flour ahead of time to improve the flavour and texture of the cake. To pre-ferment the flour, use 1 cup of cultured liquid (like almond milk yogurt, amazake, buttermilk or milk kefir). Mix it with the flour in a glass bowl and leave it somewhere warm to ferment for 12-24 hours.
  2. When ready to bake, add in the oil, vanilla, ground dates baking soda, salt and all of the spices. Mix well, then stir in the apples and nuts.
  3. Pour the cake into a 6″ non-stick cake pan (or a cake pan lined with parchment paper).
  4. Bake at 350F for 40-45 min (until a skewer comes out clean).
