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.

      Instructions:

      Apple Chai Spiced Cake

        Instructions

        • Pre-heat oven to 350F.
        • Whisk together soy milk and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl and set aside for 15 min to curdle into a dairy-free buttermilk.
        • In a large bowl mix together dry ingredients.
        • In a separate bowl, mix together all wet ingredients except the shredded apple.
        • Slowly pour the wet batter into the dry bowl and mix until everything is combined. Try not to over mix.
        • Fold in the shredded apple and transfer the batter into a lightly greased 10.5” Bundt pan (the one that looks like a French curler donut).
        • Bake in the oven for 40-45 min. It’s done when you can stick a toothpick in the middle and it comes out clean.
        • Once baked allow to cool for 10-15 min before flipping over onto a cake stand or plate.
        • Drizzle maple glaze all over the top while its still slightly warm and top with chopped pecans.

          1. This sounds delicious! Do I have to use light spelt flour or can I substitute with regular flour…or another substitute?

          2. 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!
