Vegan Dorset Apple Cake Recipe

Have you tried making cakes without eggs and butter before?  This dorset apple cake is moist and delicious with none of the dairy.

This dorset apple cake recipe is ideal for all your windfalls.  This cake is nutrient rich and full of flavour as well as coming out the oven moist (and staying moist).

We use Organic Ceylon Cinnamon (or true cinnamon) in this recipe, it is a purer form which has more potent properties including a very high cinnamaldehyde content.  To obtain this precious organic cinnamon powder, the inner bark is gently dried with warm air and then ground down. This rich brown powder has a characteristic aromatic taste and comes all the way from regions in Asia where the cinnamon tree grows.

Be creative with the ingredients to add extra flavour and nutrition.
