Apple Bake

One last recipe in support of Food Lovers Market Hunger Month Campaign!

This is a super easy Apple Cake Bake that is perfect for these colder winter days. I've made this bake using only the impeccable Tru Cape Apples which are one of the products that when purchased between now and the 28th of May, 0.90c of the proceeds go towards Food Forward SA in helping feed a hungry South African.

You will need:

  • 1 square or round baking dish

  • Mixing bowl

  • Measuring cups and spoons

  • Time 35 minutes



  • 1 cup of plant-based milk

  • 2 tablespoons apple purity

  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1/3 cup of oil of your choice

  • 1 flax egg ( 3 tablespoons of water mixed with 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence


  • 1&1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

  • 3 tablespoon of sugar

  • 11/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1 tru caps apple chopped in squares


  • 500 ml of plant-based milk

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

  • 1 tablespoon corn flour

  • Dash of turmeric


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C

  2. Mix together all of your dry ingredients including chopped apple.

  3. In a separate little bowl mix your 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds with 3 tablespoons of water.

  4. Add all your et ingredients to the dry ingredients including the flax egg.

  5. Mix until well combined.

  6. Pour the mixture into a well-oiled baking dish and place in the oven to bake for about 20-25 minutes until slightly golden and a knife comes out clean when placed inside to test.

  7. While you apple bake is in the oven start with your custard.

  8. Place your pot on the stove at medium heat with 250 ml of plant-based milk.

  9. Add in your sugar and vanilla essence as well as a dash of turmeric for colour.

  10. In a separate cup mix the tablespoon of cornflour with the remaining milk.

  11. Once your pot of milk starts to boil add in the milk and cornflour mix and remove from heat.

  12. Continue to stir until the mixture becomes thick and custard-like. If the mixture seems slightly thin, place the pot back on the stove and mix in 1/2-1 tablespoon of cornflour in a little bit of milk and add it to the mixture until it becomes the desired thickness.

  13. Once your bake is ready, serve warm with the custard and a dash of cinnamon and sugar.
