A healthy Apple Chai Spiced Cake made with the perfect blend of warming organic spices and topped with a dairy free maple glaze drizzle.
Recently, I’ve been enjoying walks every Thursday with my boyfriend, Mr. Matt along Toronto’s waterfront. I love this time because we get to enjoy nature, catch up on life and talk about our future plans. It’s so important to have this time set aside each week for us. The best part of it getting colder outside, is the prospect of coming home to whip up a warm dinner. And sometimes, indulge in a slice of cake afterwards! Who said cakes are just for parties? Definitely NOT me! During the fall season, I’m always craving warm dessert options like apple pie, blueberry peach cobbler and now my new favourite, this Apple Chai Spiced Cake!
With the busy holiday season approaching, I wanted to share a dessert that brings people together. That’s really what the holidays are all about, right? For today’s recipe, I’ve partnered up with Simply Organic; they’re my go to source for the most amazing, fragrant organic spices.
This Apple Chai Spiced Cake is just the dessert to bring people together! The warming spices alone will make your house smell extra inviting! So enjoy it with your loved ones and be sure to save an extra slice for the next morning because it’s healthy enough for breakfast but delectable enough for a late night snack.
For this recipe I created my own chai spice blend using Simply Organic’s cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, all spice and cardamom. The difference between using organic spices vs a regular grocery store label is unbelievable. Whether sweet or savoury, these organic spices really bring out the flavours. I promise you’ll notice the difference, and savour it to the end. This is probably one of the best and most moist (yes I said it) cakes I’ve ever made. It is a MUST bake this holiday season.

This sounds delicious! Do I have to use light spelt flour or can I substitute with regular flour…or another substitute?
Hello Tasha! Yes, you could use regular flour, I just find light spelt flour to be a great healthier alternative. Check out my Free Flour 101 Guide for more info on flour substitutes: https://mailchi.mp/healthnutnutrition/flourguide
I’ve never seen a more gorgeous apple spiced-cake! I totally would LOVE to try this with some flax eggs!
I don’t have a cake pan like that … Will 13 by 9 works or two 9 inch round pans?
You could def do two pans and make a layered cake 🙂
Can almond milk or coconut milk be used instead? I can’t drink soy milk please let me know
Yes you can use almond milk but it just wont thicken up the same way but it will be fine.
I agree cakes definitely just aren’t for parties! I live in Toronto as well, and it’s so gloomy today! This sounds like the perfect recipe on a day like today, in front of a fireplace. Will definitely be making this!
