1/2 c

1/2 c
soy, rice, milk, coconut milk, or regular milk
1/4 tsp

2 Tbsp

2 tsp

ADD INS

2

1/2 c

TOPPING

1 tsp
sprinkle top with raw or cane sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350ยบ F.

Line a deep 9-inch round cake pan with greased parchment paper (or grease and lightly flour).
2
In a large mixing bowl, use a whisk to combine your dry ingredients: sorghum flour, buckwheat and tapioca flours, xanthan gum, baking soda and baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, brown sugar. Set aside.
3
In a smaller bowl combine the wet ingredients: whisked egg replacer, light olive oil, applesauce, vanilla rice or coconut milk, vinegar, agave, and vanilla. Whisk till combined.
4
Add the wet into the dry ingredients and stir until a smooth batter forms. If you need a tad more liquid add a tablespoon at a time to achieve a smooth- but not too thin- cake batter.
Add half the apples and cranberries and stir in (keep some for the top).
5
Scoop the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth evenly. Add the remaining chopped apples and cranberries and press into the batter.
Sprinkle lightly with raw sugar.
6
Bake in the center of the preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes until golden around the edges and firm in the center. Use a cake tester to test for doneness. (Timing might also be influenced by the size of your chopped apples, oven temperature variations, etc. If your ingredients are cold, I suggest you bring them to room temperature.)
7
Cool on a wire rack.
This cake was divine slightly warm from the oven.
If making ahead, I would freeze slices wrapped in foil. They reheat beautifully in the microwave- or- if you like your cake cold, it is delicious slightly chilled. Serves 9-10.
