- 2 cups grated apples (about 3-4 medium-sized apples from your orchard)
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup any vegetable oil ( I like coconut oil best in this recipe though!)

- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves and nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp salt

- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a cake pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the grated apples, sugar, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Mix well until the sugar is dissolved.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined.
- Add the unsweetened applesauce and apple cider vinegar to the batter. Mix until smooth.
- Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it evenly.
- Decorate the top with some apple slices.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
- Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 15 minutes.
Slice and serve this delectable vegan apple cake to revel in every bite of its moist, tender texture, perfectly intertwined with the comforting embrace of autumn's aromatic spices.
With each forkful, savor the harmonious blend of grated apples that infuse their natural sweetness, while the subtle hints of cinnamon and the rich undertones of vanilla elevate every mouthful into a symphony of flavors.
