Wow! Just wow!  This recipe was a compete experiment and it turned out utterly delicious.

Ok, if i’m totally honest it was made out of a desperation for comfort and cake and all I had in the house were apples and some of my home-made Vanilla Maple Granola.  Yup, you know how it goes, when it’s raining outside, you’ve got that craving for cake and you’ll do anything you can to eat some!

I really hope you enjoy it!

(Serves 12)

  • 240g Spelt Flour (If you need gluten free I think Chestnut Flour works really well here)
  • 1 1/2 Tbls Baking Powder
  • 120g Vanilla Maple Granola – or any SF Granola
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp Sea Salt
  • 60ml Olive Oil
  • 120ml Brown Rice Syrup
  • 1 Tbls Milled Chia Seeds mixed in 2Tbls Water
  • 120ml Maple Syrup
  • 160ml Unsweetened Apple Juice
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla Powder or Essence
  • 300g Raisins
  • 2 Eating Apples
  • Brown Rice Syrup or Maple Syrup to drizzle over the top


– Pre-heat oven to 180degrees C
– Sift flour into a mixing bowl and add all dry ingredients (except granola & raisins)
– Mix wet ingredients together really well (except the apples)
– Peel the apple, remove the seeds and slice them into nice thin moon slices
– Mix wet ingredients with the dry and mix to get out any extra lumps but don’t over mix
– Mix in the granola and raisins
– Oil the sides and bottom surface of a 6inch or 9inch cake tin and pour half the batter in
– Then do a layer of apple slices
– Then pour in the rest of the batter to completely cover the apples
– Layer the remainder of the apple moons in a concentric circle all the way around the top of the cake so that it is fully covered
– With a pastry brush lightly brush the top layer of apples with olive oil
– Put cake in the oven to bake for 30-40min or until you can put a knife through the middle and it comes out clean. Check after 30min first as each oven is different
– Once done take out and leave to cool for at least 20min
– Once cool place it on a cake stand or wherever you want to keep it and drizzle maple syrup or rice syrup over the top and sprinkle a little extra granola

Voila! All done! Enjoy xxx
