Raw caramel apple cake☁️

Okey okey okey this is a really exciting post to write! Because I’m looking forward to you trying this cake so so much. Its quite easy to make, and the main ingredient - apples, are in season, so find your nearest garden and go get some 🍎🍎


This is a recipe from our book, Jordnært, that I wanted to make now that I’ve picked up lots of apples from our Airbnb garden (which you can read more about here).


Raw caramel apple cake

You need:

Bottom layer:

  • 100 grams walnuts

  • 300 grams raisins (preferably organic)


  • 2 apples

  • 75 grams raisins (preferably organic)

  • 4 tbsp agave or maple syrup

  • 4 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Caramel sauce:

  • 8 Medjool dates

  • 1 tablespoon nut butter (almond, peanut, hazelnut ++)

  • 2 tbsp meltet coconut oil

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp vanilla powder - optional (not vanilla sugar)

  • 1/2 dl agave or maple syrup

How to:

  1. Filling: Start by cutting the apples into small, thin slices. Add them to a bowl with raisins, sweetner of choice, lemon juice and cinnamon. Mix it together with your hands. Let them marinate in the bowl until the rest is done.

  2. Bottom layer: Add the walnuts and raisins to a food processor. Blend until you get a sticky dough.

  3. Assembly: Choose whether you want to make a cake or cupcakes. We’ve tried both, so its just a matter of what you're feeling right now. If you make a cake, spread the bottom layer in a cake tin with a baking sheet underneath. If you go for cupcakes, place small amounts of bottom layer into each cupcake. Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes!

  4. Caramel sauce: Add all the caramel sauce ingredients to a food processor. Let it spin until you get a liquid consistency.

  5. Put it together: Add the apple filling and caramel sauce layer by layer on the bottom layer. Put the whole thing back in the freezer and wait for it to sit.

  6. Serve: Serve with delicious (vegan) ice cream!
