Apple Coffee Cake

APPLE COFFEE CAKE (VEGAN)

Mmm…try this apple coffee cake for a weekend breakfast or for dessert! Thanksgiving is coming (in the U.S.), too! The top is sweetened with some sugar but the cake part is sweetened with just banana, apple, and the sweetener in the soy milk.

APPLE PREP
Chop (finely) 1 large organic apple.
Measure 1 C and save this for the topping.
Split the remaining chopped apple into 2 portions. Half will go in the cake batter whole and half will be pureed with other wet ingredients.

FLAX EGG PREP
Set aside 1 T ground flax mixed with 3 T water in a small dish.

WALNUT PREP
Grind 3/4 C walnuts in a food processor. Measure 1/2 C for the topping and 1/4 C for the cake.

TOPPING INGREDIENTS
(Assembly is described below)
1/2 C organic sugar
1/2 C whole oats
1 t cinnamon
1 T molasses
Chopped walnuts (1/2 C as described above)
1/4 C raisins

DRY INGREDIENT PREP
Combine the following in a large bowl:
1 1/2 C all-purpose flour
1/2 C oat flour
1 T baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t sea salt
1/4 t ground cardamom

WET INGREDIENTS PREP
Puree in a food processor or blend in blender:
1 ripe banana
Chopped apple (portion as described above)
3/4 C organic soy milk (I used Edensoy Extra)
1 T avocado oil (or other oil)
1 t vanilla extract

Sugar, cinnamon & molasses mixture

Topping, ready to spread

Combining wet and dry ingredients

ASSEMBLY
1. Grease a square glass pan with oil of choice (I use coconut oil).
2. Perform the different ‘preps’ of the apple, flax egg, walnut, dry ingredients, and wet ingredients.
3. To make the topping, combine the cinnamon with the sugar in large bowl. Stir/mash in the molasses until well distributed. Stir in the 1 C of chopped apple. Stir in the oats, raisins, and the 1/2 C walnuts. Set aside.
4. Add the following to the dry ingredients: the 1/4 C walnuts, the wet ingredients, the flax egg, and the remaining chopped apple.
5. Spread the cake batter in the greased pan. Spread the topping evenly over the top.
6. Bake at 350 to 375 degrees for 35+ minutes (depends on your oven; check after about 30 minutes then add 5 minutes at a time if needed).
7. ENJOY! (It’s good with a little vegan butter / Earth Balance).

Blueberry Pancakes

Blueberry Pancakes

This is the pancake that I feed my toddler every single morning.  I make a batch, then freeze.  He eats plain cut-up pieces and likes to make “dippers” in his green smoothie.  Todd thinks they’re yummy and I agree with him!  They are thick and fluffy.  He loves eating the whole organic blueberries (thank you, Costco!).  These are only banana-sweetened because I try to limit Todd’s sugar intake as much as possible.

BLUEBERRY PANCAKES

2 T olive oil

  1. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and don’t over-mix.
