Anyway,besides this cake not looking that great it is the yummiest, most moist, rich and delicious cake I have ever eaten, even veganised!
The coating on top is like a coconut caramel and the actual cake is apple and date. Everything about it is perfect!
2 Large apples (peeled, cored and chopped)
1 cup of dates (don't use majool, you can just use the cheap dried ones)
1 teaspoon bi-carb
1 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup nuttelex (or any vegan butter substitute)
1 egg of egg replacer
1 cup of caster sugar
2 cups of self-raising flour
1/2 cup nuttelex
1/2 cup non dairy milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup shredded coconut
Place chopped dates and apples into a bowl and add bi-carb. Cover with boiling water and set aside for 10 mins.
Line a deep cake tin (traditionally square 23cm) and pre heat oven to 180 degrees.
In a separate bowl cream nuttelex, egg replacer, vanilla and sugar.
Once apples have soaked for 10 mins add to nuttelex mixture, add flour and combine well.
The mixture is quite wet at this point.
Pour into tin and bake for 50 mins.
Cook all topping ingredients in a pan until nuttelex is melted. Once cake is done, pour topping over and bake for 20 more minutes.
