I am constantly thinking of vegan recipes and desserts to bake and when I think of something that I really want to make, I have to do it! Haha recently I really wanted to make a vegan Crumb Cake. I was thinking and searching for ways to create the perfect crumble flavor and texture, and was surprised with how easy the total process came out! :) I ended up making a batch one night, finding it gone the next day, and having to remake it for photos…and it being gone the next day again! So as you can see, both my family and friends thought it was a big hit!
The recipe is a little longer than my usual short and sweet recipes, but it’s delicious none the less! :)
Riia’s Vegan Crumb Cake
For the Topping:
- 1/3 cup Rolled oats (not instant or quick-cook)
- 1/3 cup Sugar
- 1/4 cup Flour (I used whole wheat)
- 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
- Pinch sea salt
- 1/2 cup Chopped Walnuts
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
For the cake:
- 1/2 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
- 1 Tbsp Gound Flax Seeds
- 1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/3 cup Sugar
- 1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1/3 cup Olive Oil
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 ts Lemon Juice
- 2 cups Flour (I used whole wheat)
- 1-1/2 Tbsp Baking Powder
- 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Oil pan or line with parchment paper.
Make the topping:
Stir oats, sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt together. Add olive oil and mix/pinch until crumbly. Add walnuts. Toss.
Make the cake:
In a separate bowl, whisk together the applesauce, flax, vinegar, sugar, nut milk, oil, vanilla and lemon juice.
In another bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Add in wet ingredients. Whisk until blended.
Spread batter in pan. Sprinkle topping mixture on top. Press topping lightly into top of the cake. Bake for 30-35 minutes, check if done with a toothpick.
Cool. Serve. Share. Enjoy! :)
