Moist Dairy free Apple Cake

For over a year now, the mascarpone and apple cake is the best seller of the blog, by far with over 200K connexions up to now!!

I have had  quite a few demands for a dairy free version for those who can not have lactose.

So today, here is the moist dairy free apple cake.

I had to make a few experiments to find the right dosage of ingredients and I finally got it.

I made a blind test on my children (is it bad to use kids for work purpose???), I served the moist dairy free apple cake without saying anything. They didn’t see any difference! So I have here a version very close in terms of texture and taste as the original mascarpone and apple cake!! Victory!!

To be precise, I put soy yogurt “Greek style” instead of the usual mascarpone, I reduced the number of eggs and slightly increased the amount of flour to get the right texture for my batter.

Honestly, it’s really difficult to see or taste the difference!!

The utensils:

A large bowl and my professional whisk by De Buyer

Or my kMix by Kenwood

My Affinity frying pan by De Buyer

My 26 cm diameter cake mold.

You can make the same recipe in an 18 cm diameter mold if you divide all quantities by 2.

You’re all set to start baking.

The recipe, Chef!

      Alors, il faut que j’y travaille mais c’est compliqué car le moelleux vient en grande partie du mélange intime du sucre et des œufs … Mais je garde ça en tête !!

    Super gâteau une vraie tuerie. J’ai juste changé la cannelle par un demi jus de citron et un n demi zeste de citron vert et le soja par 200ml crème coco. Mes amis ont tout fini. Merci beaucoup
