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
100 grams walnuts
300 grams raisins (preferably organic)
75 grams raisins (preferably organic)
4 tbsp agave or maple syrup
4 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp cinnamon
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
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.
Bottom layer: Add the walnuts and raisins to a food processor. Blend until you get a sticky dough.
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!
Caramel sauce: Add all the caramel sauce ingredients to a food processor. Let it spin until you get a liquid consistency.
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.
Serve: Serve with delicious (vegan) ice cream!
Would love to hear your thoughts on this cake! Does it sound easy to make? Want to try it? <3
