HOW TO MAKE THE CAKE
Preheat your oven to 175C/347F and line a 6 inch cake tin with baking paper and grease
Firstly make your egg replacer, mix the flaxseed with the boiling water and stir. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl sieve all your dry ingredients together and mix together with a whisk
In a large jug, mix your soy milk and vinegar together until it thickens
Add remaining wet ingredients and mix together really well
Thinly slice your apple and place them in a small bowl. Cover apple pieces in a tiny amount of your wet ingredients and then cover with a small amount of the dry ingredients. Put aside 2 tbsp of the flour mix.
Make a well in the centre of your flour mix and pour in your milk mix. Gently mix together using a whisk until just combined.
Pour into your cake tin and gently tap on the bench to release air bubbles
Sprinkle the spare flour over the top of the batter
Sprinkle 3/4 of your walnuts over the flour
Arrange the apple onto the cake starting from the outside and working your way to the middle
Bake in the oven for 45-50 mins or until a skewer comes out almost clean
Remove from oven and allow to sit in the cake tin for 10 mins before turning onto a cooling rack
HOW TO MAKE GLAZE
To make your glaze mix together your icing sugar, water and golden syrup until combined and pour over the top of your cake
Store this cake in an air tight container NOT in the fridge as it will dry out. Watch how to make this cake on my youtube channel which also has loads of vegan baking tips
