Vegan Jewish Apple Cake

I grew up eating a cake that was always called Jewish Apple Cake. When I came to NYC, no one knew what I was talking about. I decided to make a vegan version for the apartment to share my love of this cake with my friends. The outside is thick and crusty and the inside has cinnamon and succulent apple pieces. Mine didn’t turn out exactly like the ones I ate growing up but it was pretty close!


  • 2 Tbsp flax meal
  • 6 Tbsp water
  • 3 medium red apples, peeled and diced
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ¾ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup soy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Generously grease baking dish.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine wet ingredients in a bowl. Mix the two together.
  3. Add the apples and mix. Pour into baking dish.
  4. Bake for 40-60 minutes, depending on the depth of the baking dish.

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
