Lemony Snippet – a healthy, delicious snack

A super-moist cake that is easy to make and is delicious eaten alone, or accompanied with ‘friends’ – coconut yoghurt, ice cream or lemon juice drizzle and cream!

Vegan & Healthy

This plant-based cake is a great lunch box filler for kids (or big kids) or a nice treat with a cup of tea/coffee. It is gluten-free and very easy on the digestive system.

Almond Meal is left-over pulp from making almond mylk. But, you can buy organic Almond Meal in any good health food store/shop. Almond Flour is ground up blanched almonds and it is much finer than Almond Meal. Almond Meal has a more coarse texture.

Ingredients – makes 12 ‘fingers’ or fills a 9inch cake tin

  • 1/2 cup plant-based mylk (soy, almond, oat)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium apple (peeled and core removed)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice*
  • 1/2 cup maple sugar (or syrup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 cups (400g) Almond Meal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon organic icing sugar (or coconut flour), to serve

*if you love lemon, increase lemon juice to 1/2 cup and add in an additional 1/4 cup of Almond Meal

*dust with coconut flour if you want a healthier option

Blended with Kuvings SV500 Vacuum Blender

Method

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 325 degree Farenheit (160 degree Celsius)

Step 2:Line a 9×3 springform cake tin with baking paper – or, use a Silicon Bar Baking Mould

Step 3: Gather the following ingredients and place them into the blender as follows:

  • 1/2 cup plant-based mylk (soy, almond, oat)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium apple (peeled and core removed)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice*

Step 4: Blend all together in your Kuvings Vacuum Blender

  • Place the lid on the jug and the noise-reduction cover on
  • Touch ‘power on’ button
  • Select vacuum blend or auto blend button
  • Let the Blender do its thing

Step 5: In a large bowl place the following

  • 1/2 cup maple sugar (or syrup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 cups (400g) Almond Meal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

Make a well in the centre and then tip your wet blender mix into the bowl.

Step 6: Pour the batter into your cake tin/silicon mould and smooth over to make level.

Step 7: Bake in the oven until they are golden, for approximately 30 minutes.

You can check they are ready by inserting a toothpick into the middle – it should come out clean.

Step 8: Remove from the oven once cooked and allow them to cool completely before removing them from tin/silicon mould.

Step 9: With a small sifter/strainer, dust with icing sugar/coconut flour

Serve with any of the following:

  • fresh fruit – raspberries, banana
  • ice cream – vanilla bean coconut ice cream
  • cream – coconut yoghurt

They will remain fresh and moist in a sealed container for a few days. You can also reheat them gently in the oven and serve warm!
