A Bit Healthier Apple Peanut Cinnamon Cake 🍏🥜

Happy Monday, my friends!

It was fun to be a guest judge for Fruits and Veggies Monday last week, but I'm so excited to share something with you again this week! I have to admit, I’m not the type of person to often say that I’m proud of something I’ve done (well, I’m also a Finn), but this cake, I’m proud of my creation. I literally made it from the scratch, I made the oat flour from rolled oats, and the applesauce, peanut butter and oat milk were all homemade. So, let's get to the recipe!

Apple Peanut Cinnamon Cake

(I was told that this isn't sweet enough to be called a cake, but I love it as a cake, so cake it is!)

Ingredients:

½ cups (1,25 dl) oat flour
1 cup (2,5 dl) all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla sugar (optional)
½ cup (1,25 dl) applesauce
¼ cup (0,6 dl) peanut butter
¾ cup (1,8 dl) plant milk (I used oat milk)
¼ cup (0,6 dl) melted coconut oil
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 medium size apple

Method:

• Preheat your oven to 175 °C (= 350 °F). Measure all the dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix. Measure all the wet ingredients into a separate bowl and mix together with the dry ingredients. I advice using a mixer, since the peanut butter is quite thick.

• Chop the apple into small pieces and mix the pieces into the batter with a spatula.
• Butter a cake tin (you can also use breadcrumbs after you’ve buttered the tin to make sure nothing will stick).

• Pour the batter into the tin and bake for approx. 1 hour. While you’re waiting for the cake to bake, it’s time for the best part, to lick the whisks and all the remaining batter from the bowl. Then off to doing the dishes, yay!

• Decorate with some peanut butter and roasted peanuts if you want something extra! Serving a slice with applesauce or ice cream have also been tested to work out really well!
Enjoy!

Ohhh myyy.. I am so gonna make this one!
Will have to replace few ingredients as I don't have them.
Thanks for the recipe :)

My pleasure, I'm just glad you like this! I'm sure your cake will turn out delicious even if you replace a few ingredients. Have fun with baking!
Thanks for the resteem and the comment @ewkaw, it was really nice to read! :)

Pretty sure it will :) It looks good, sounds good, must be good them. No other option.
My pleasure!

...drooling...

Haha, that if something is a compliment! :)

Great post. Love the pictures. and most importantly. Looks delicious :)

Thank you @steven-patrick, I appreciate it! :)

Beautiful presentation that makes my mouth watering @jasmink! send me a piece, please.. uhhmm, my coffee mint would be perfect with this cake. now I need to learn how to make apple souce and find the better subtitution for the maple syrup.. maybe honey would worked, right? sluurrpps... need to stay away from your post after this and do something with my post this week... TFS

That was so nicely said, thanks @cicisaja! 😊 Imagine how great it was if we could virtually share all our creations with each other every Fruits and Veggies Monday? Applesauce is actually really simple to prepare, I made this post about it a while back, I recommend trying it! I'm pretty sure any kind of sweetener would work instead of maple syrup, so honey would be fine as well!
Have a lovely day! 😊

Thank you @jasmink for the reply and tight direction to thr applesauce 😉 we have so many kind of sweetener here and I'd better keep all the recipe from #fruitsandveggiesmonday to my note😊 I like your recipe the most because it is simple and delicious for a non-vegan like me 😊

That was so nicely said, thank you! 😘 There are too many great recipes every Fruits and Veggies Monday, it's so great but also sad, we just don't have the time to try all the wonderful recipes!

Yes you are absolutely right @jasmink.. I bought 2 big cabbage because I want to make skaeurkraut.. but never had time to really executed it till today, but I do make some smoothie for my FIL learning from the recipe and use the available fruit in my kitchen. I must admit that I don;t have an oven.. that's why some baked recipe wouldn't be on my first list. But once I have time to get a good apple with affordable price.. I'll make sure to re-bake yours!

It seems to me that everyone is making sauerkraut but me, and I'm craving it really badly! I'll definitely have to start doing something to this problem... 😁

Having read your comment, at first I was thinking "whaaat, no oven, how can you live without it?!", but then I started to think about it a bit more, and realized that oven isn't really a necessity. At least I don't use it that often. But I'm super glad to hear that you'd like to try out my cake recipe! 😊

I have the electric oven once 😊 but I left it to my lil sister when I moved out from Aceh😊 and I know why my husband and my FIL don't have any oven 😂 they bought everything before I live with them. My FIL has suggested to buy an oven before, but I keep saying it's not a priority since FIL loves steamed cakes.

About the sauerkraut, I'm curious about it more than anything 😂😂 I thought it was something with cheese or even kind of cheese until I read buckaroo's post.

It's so funny sometimes when have an idea what something is (in your case that sauerkraut is something cheezy) but it turns out to be something totally different! 😄

I've never made any steamed cakes, perhaps you could show how it's done on Fruits and Veggies Monday some week. I think it would super interesting for all of us! 😊

Mmm, that looks delicious! My mouth is watering. BTW, I love your cake tin. I think I will try to make it next week when I have shopped.

Thank you for sharing :)

Thank you for the lovely comment and the resteem, @deemarshall, I truly appreciate it! Let me know how you like the cake if you try it! :)

This cake looks wonderful and you can really be proud of yourself, great @jasmink!

Thank you so much @proanima! 😊

Truly a masterpiece Sweetie and in the shape of a heart, Who can ask for more? The only thing I wish is that I could reach out and grab that piece. It loos absolutely scrumptious. Well done Dear Jasmin 🍒 🍌🍑🌿🍍🍓🍇

Thank you so much Lena! 😊

Wow, I admire that you even made the flour, apple sauce and milk yourself - you sure can be proud of that! Did it taste better than other cakes you've made, since you put so much love and care into this creation?

Well, the result definitely looks amazing. ✨

Thank you, Anais for this lovely comment, you're so sweet! 💙 I think it really tastes better when you put the secret ingredient, love, into anything you make! So yes, this is one of my favorites at the moment! 😊

Crushed it!!! This recipe is amazing. I’m literally salivating over here @jasmink. Way to create everything from scratch too. I know it’s a little more tome consuming but the end result is so much pride accompanied with a great tasting dish. Good job.

I’m all about the peanut butter apple cake. I think this is a winner 😉. I’m not mad at that heart shaped cake pan either. Brilliant!!!

Again, you made my day with your lovely comment, thank you for all the compliments @puravidaville! 😊 This cake is just pure love in the shape of a heart, haha!

It was only a few months ago when I discovered how great a combination applesauce and peanut butter is! I mean, the combo is absolutely heavenly! 😍

I’m for sure going to join you on that peanut butter apple sauce train. It looks like perfection and simple enough to whip up. It’ll be a few months before I can make my own peanut butter though (booo) but have this recipe in the chamber for next week or the following 😋. Next week we are going to Vegas so it may get pushed back a lil :)

Trip to Vegas sounds good, so I'll except your excuse for not trying my recipe right away, haha! Every Monday my list of recipes to try grows and grows, everyone participating Fruits and Veggies Monday are too great chefs, I'd want to try everything! 😋

Tell me about it. I have files dedicated to specific people and their recipes. Haha. Some of them I’m just going to have to wait a while but others can be whipped up any time. Monday’s community is truly talented.

You should totally be proud of this! Doesn't get much better than a made from scratch baked cake. And it totally counts as a cake. 😉 I recently had a friend try a recipe for muffins that I shared. Her kids devoured them (yay!), but all she said was that they tasted "healthy". I was like, duh, they are healthy! I took it as a compliment, haha. This is definitely getting bookmarked to try in my kitchen soon. You had me at peanut butter, but the whole thing looks fantastic!

Thank you so much! Kids are the ones whose opinion we should always rely on, if they say they like something, it truly is good. No matter if it's healthy or not.

Yay for bookmarking and trying the recipe! I think the cake tastes even better the next day when you heat it up a little in the microwave! 😋

Thank you @luigi-the-gnome, that is the perfect kind of feedback! I would love to share you a piece, if only that could happen virtually, haha! :)

So incredible how you made so much of it from scratch! ☺️ it probably makes it taste all that much better!

Thanks @destinydeanda! I believe that you can taste all the love, care, time and effort you put into your cooking and baking, especially the love. 😊
Have a lovely day!

Mmm peanut butter and apple combined sounds delicious:)i love your heart shape tin:)

Peanut butter and applesauce is one of the greatest combo in my opinion! 😋 Who doesn't want a cake in the shape of heart? It highlights the fact that the cake is made with love, haha! Thanks for the lovely comment, @drawmeaship! :)
