Autumn Sunday afternoons are for baking, right? Especially when it’s raining outside. Happens all the time to me!
This vegan carrot-apple-orange cake is yet another vegan recipe I have developed just for the sake of trying to make it vegan. I love experimenting with food prepared in a vegan way. Cakes are definitely a good way to start making more vegan food at home. Some of these cakes are difficult to make in a fully vegan way. But this was easy. Partially because the puree of fruits and veg will also work instead of an egg, so there is no need for that.
This delicious recipe brings the autumn sunshine in your kitchen. Plus it’s super simple to make it. All you need is a food processor. Although you can also grate the carrot and the apple, chop the orange into smaller pieces, it will be a bit more rustic). Literally, throw all fruits into the food processor and blend them until they are smooth.
Then you just mix everything else in. It’s really fool proof, so you won’t be winning The Great British Bake Off with this – but it’s delicious, bursting with autumn flavours and just super easy to make this when you are no mood of hours of food preparing. (Like me, most of the time!) You can pair it with some ice cream, I imagine some vanilla ice cream would go really well with the still warm cake. It’s a really filling cake, very lovely and do thick and soft.
I hope you enjoy it if you give it a go and make it.
