Easy vegan applesauce cake

imageThis cake is very easy, extremely moist and delicious, oh and it’s vegan.  It’s a quick and easy recipe using ingredients you already have in the kitchen, so it’s great for when you want a quick and easy dessert.

what you will need –

image1/3 cup coconut oil (and a little extra to grease the baking pan with)

1 1/2 cups applesauce (unsweetened)

3/4 cup sugar

2 cups flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees.  Use a small amount of coconut oil to grease the baking dish with.

imagePut the coconut oil and applesauce into a microwave safe bowl.  Measure and set aside the sugar.  Measure walnuts (if you are using them) and place them in their own bowl. Set aside for now.

In a separate bowl, measure and put in the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  Use a fork to stir the dry ingredients together.  This will sift and combine all the dry ingredients.

Place the bowl with the applesauce and coconut oil in the microwave.  Microwave for a minute, until the coconut oil is melted (or at least mostly melted).  Remove from microwave.

Using a mixer (or hand mixer), blend the applesauce and coconut oil completely.  Add the sugar and mix.  Next, add in the dry ingredient mixture slowly, adding only a few spoonfuls or about a quarter of a cup at a time.  Continue mixing until everything is completely combined.  If you are adding walnuts, add them in now.
