Vegan Apple and Ginger Cake Recipe

This Apple and Ginger Cake is a lovely moist, fruity and gently spiced cake perfect for a teatime treat. Or serve warm with ice cream or custard for a comforting pudding.  It is very quick and easy to prepare, is egg-free and dairy-free, suitable for vegans and doesn't contain too much added sugar.

I developed this recipe to utilise the Duerr's Ginger Preserve that I was sent to review. It is a lovely preserve filled with chunks of soft, warming ginger. It can be found in Asda and is £1 for a 454g jar.

    That vegan apple and ginger cake looks delicious - I wouldn't mind having a slice right now. Although it looks quite complicated to make it actually sounds easy. Anything that contains ginger has my vote every time. xxxxx
