My oldest son lives in Seoul, S. Korea and is home for a visit for the first time in 2 ½ years. When he comes home, I make him birthday cakes for the years he has been gone. He always comes up with unique cake ideas which are a fun challenge. I made this one twice—the first attempt was okay but not great. I had grated the apple but it was too subtle to really taste. The nest time I diced it and added more, and it had a much stronger apple taste. Using vinegar is an old cooking technique from the depression when there was a shortage of eggs.

Ingredients:

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1/3 cup canola oil

½ cup almond milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon vinegar

 

Directions:

Mix the dry ingredients. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Pour batter into an oiled cake pan and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until a inserted toothpick comers out clean

 

Icing:

 

4 cups powdered sugar

3 tablespoons softened butter or earth balance

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon cinnamon

 

Directions:

 

Mix together well.

Let cake cool, then frost with icing.
