Best Vegan Caramel Apple Cake

Guess what, this amazing cake is incredibly easy to make too!  It requires canned apple pie filling, and canned coconut milk.  These are pretty unique ingredients to use in a cake, but it works SO WELL, and really simplifies the recipe. 

We found out you can actually use other pie fillings in this cake too!  We made it with cherry pie filling and it was tremendous!  I think you could use just about any canned pie filling in this cake.

Caramel sauce goes on top of the cake.  This caramel sauce is super simple to make, but it’s just perfect

The caramel sauce is made of just 4 simple ingredients:  melted vegan butter, pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, and dates.  Just blend it up, and you have it!

To make this super-satisfying caramel apple cake, first we make 3 flax eggs.  Then in a large bowl mix up the baking soda, flour, cinnamon, and salt.  Then we stir in the apple pie filling, canned coconut milk, sugar, vinegar, vanilla, and flax eggs.

We don’t even need a mixer, a wooden spoon will do just fine.  Pour the batter into a greased glass baking dish and bake at 350F for 50 minutes.  If you’re using a metal baking dish you can bake it at 375F. 

Check it with a toothpick in the center of the cake, once it comes out clean it’s done.  Spread the caramel sauce on top and enjoy the cake warm or cold.  For bonus points serve it with some vegan vanilla ice cream!
