Family food: vegan Dutch apple cake

What would life be without the occasional cake? The Stem & Glory chefs have created some delicious vegan cakes, which retain the Stem & Glory healthy twist by throwing fresh fruit in at every opportunity. The beauty of most vegan cakes is that they are actually simpler than non-vegan cakes; mix the wet ingredients, mix the dry ingredients, then mix the two together and voila! Read this recipe from Louise Palmer Masterton, founder of Stem & Glory, then why not make your first foray into vegan baking?


This cake was first created by Stem & Glory founder Louise’s daughter Daisy when she was 13, and it was an instant hit.

  • 2 tsp cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup oil – just use your favourite
  • 2 large or 3 small apples cored, halved and sliced thinly
