Our mission here at Foodaciously is to bring you truly healthy, uses only recipes every time healthy ingredients. So today we want to show you how to make a delicious vegan applesauce cake without eggs, dairy, or refined sugar. It is 100% healthy.
Most sponge cake recipes contain butter and eggs, which are not suitable for vegans. Even vegan options often rely on unhealthy, highly processed ingredients like palm oil-based spreads. Well, we say no to that!
Instead, we prepared our vegan cake batter with homemade apple sauce, almond milk, whole wheat flour and maple syrup. The result is a spongy, fluffy and delicious cake with a quarter fat And half the sugar than the classic sponge cake.
In the following recipe we explain how to do it Make applesauce from scratch Step by step with only five apples. You can also opt for store-bought applesauce, but make sure it’s sugar-free. Applesauce is a fantastic alternative to fats, and just like butter, it has the ability to bind the solids, giving you a super soft cake. And the good news is that, weight for weight, it has seven times fewer calories than butter and zero fats.
Egg whites are often added to cake batters to make them fluffy and fluffy. We got a similar result by combining vinegar with baking soda. These two ingredients react with each other, releasing lots of air bubbles and helping the cake soften without the need for egg whites (or aquafaba).
This squishy cake is great for a sweet breakfast or a nice brunch. You can also glaze it with our plain dark chocolate and Applesauce Frosting and turn it into a fancy dessert.
