An absolute classic from the US – Apple Cider (Donut) Cake. So delicious and a great highlight in autumn.



For the batter:
2 cups (260g) spelt flour
3/4 cup (100g) wholemeal spelt flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cardamom
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup (200g) xylitol (or brown sugar)
3/4 cup (190g) applesauce (unsweetened)*
3/4 cup (180ml) olive oil
3 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup (240ml) apple cider (or apple juice)

For the coating:
2 tbsp. melted butter
1/4 cup (50g) sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a large bundt pan and dust with some flour. Set aside.

2. Mix the two flours, baking powder, cinnamon, cardamom, ground ginger, and salt to a bowl and mix to combine. Add the xylitol (or brown sugar), apple sauce, olive oil, eggs, and vanilla extract to a large bowl and mix to combine. Add the apple cider (or apple juice) and the flour mixture to the bowl and mix until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Take out of the oven and let cool down for about 15 minutes, then remove from the pan and place on a wire rack.

3. Mix the sugar with cinnamon. Brush the still warm cake with the melted butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar and let cool down completely.


Enjoy baking!
