Dairy-Free Apple Cake is a moist cake, full of apples and is good served with or without icing. The cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice make it reminiscent of autumn. It would be a delicious dessert to have with your Thanksgiving dinner.
I frost the cake with Dairy-Free Cream Cheese Frosting Substitute, which adds sweetness and a bit of a tang to this yummy cake. It also keeps the cake dairy-free!
I like to use granny smith apples when baking because they add a crisp, tart flavor. However, you can use the type of apples you prefer, or use a blend of apples.
After the cake has cooled, I remove it from the pan then add the frosting. You could leave it in the pan, if you prefer and just frost the top of the cake.
This recipe is good as cupcakes, and it freezes well, too!
I hope you enjoy the Dairy-Free Apple Cake!
