Vegan Apple Chocolate Cake

Make tea parties more delightful with Apple Chocolate Cake.
So Mother's Day was yesterday. Last week, I made this beautiful little cake that my mom would probably love (well, if there had been a lemon version). Still, she loves chocolate.
This special, very creative Apple Chocolate Cake by Adrianna's Living Healthy With Chocolate Blog combines the love of sweet, divine chocolate bliss and scrumptious apples together as a cake. Although her recipe has eggs, the white vinegar substitute plays well in my remixed veganized version, bringing forth a modest sized dessert that would entice any guest for a generous helping.

Organic Lady Alice Apples for cake.
Moist, spiced cake packed with chocolaty goodness and apple bites and a rich, decadent frosting that is finger licking delicious.

Chocolate Apple Cake Ingredients and Preparation

3 cup flour
1/2 cup cacao or cocoa powder
1/2 cup cane sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 1/2 cup apples, chopped


1/2 chocolate chips (used Pascha's 100% Unsweetened Cacao Chips)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

apples slices for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a cake pan (8" or 9") with coconut oil along the sides and parchment paper on the bottom.

Sift flour, cacao, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and baking soda together.
Combine coconut oil, vanilla, and almond milk.
Blend wet with dry ingredients. Add white vinegar.

Stir apples last. 
Pour batter into prepared cake pan.
Bake for 20-30 minutes.

To make topping: combine cacao (or chocolate) chips, brown sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla together in a steel bowl over boiling hot water.

Once cake is ready and cooled, spread with chocolate icing over top. Add apple slices and layer with remaining icing.

Sample a slice.



  1. This looks like such a fun, delicious cake!

  2. I'm not sure if I've ever had a chocolate/apple combination, but it looks and sounds delicious! That icing looks especially good!

    1. Thanks so much! I'm going to make it again-- I loved this a lot!
