This delicious Apple, Pecan and Sultana Loaf is the vegan version of the previously posted Gluten and Dairy Free Apple, Pecan and Sultana Loaf. By replacing the eggs with flax eggs, this cake very easily becomes vegan. Just like its sister cake, it is also loaded with fresh, grated apple, juicy sweet sultanas, roast pecan nuts and desiccated coconut. It is moist, healthy, and lightly sweetened with maple syrup, and warming, sweet cinnamon.
Ideal for breakfast, morning coffee, afternoon tea and perfect to include in a lunch box or for a picnic, this cake is wonderful served as is, but also delicious spread with your favourite vegan butter – I love it with nut butters.
How to make Vegan and Gluten Free Apple, Pecan and Sultana Loaf
Collect all your ingredients together:
pecan nuts or walnuts
sweet eating apples, peeled, cored and grated
dairy free yoghurt – I used coconut
ground flax seeds and warm water
gluten free plain/all-purpose flour – I use freee
bicarbonate of/baking soda
gluten free baking powder
sultanas or raisins, or mix of the two or dates
How to make this cake:
Preheat the oven and roast the pecan nuts for 8 minutes.
Melt the coconut oil, either in the microwave or, melt in a saucepan over a moderate heat on the hob. Set aside to cool whilst you collect and prepare the remaining ingredients.
Mix the ground flax seeds with the warm water and set aside to thicken.
Peel core and grate the apples.
When cooked, roughly chop the pecan nuts.
Add the flax seed eggs to the yoghurt, maple syrup, vanilla extract and the oil. Mix well with a balloon whisk.
Now fold the flour, cinnamon, cardamom, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, salt and desiccated coconut into the wet ingredients, until nearly mixed in.
Finally add the grated apple, chopped nuts and sultanas and fold in.
Transfer the mixture to a 450g/1lb loaf tin. I like to decorate mine with some sliced apple and pecan nuts before baking.
Bake in the centre of a pre-heated oven for around 50 – 60 minutes, or until cooked.
Leave in the tin for 10 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
