Apricot crumble cake (gluten free)

Simple, moist vegan sponge cake with fine sprinkles and apricots (gluten-free)

Vegan apricot crumble cake (gluten free)

This apricot crumble cake is a real poem! I love crumble cake just about anything, whether it’s with blackberries, apples, or any other fruit that’s ripe. Currently, apricots are very popular with us, because the organic farmer we trust currently has them perfectly ripe and incredibly tasty. Then, if I already have the opportunity, I prefer to bake a cake with it. Today I am making a gluten free version, as I feel many are looking for gluten free recipes. Let me know if you are on a gluten free diet? Happy to do so below in the comments, but here we go with today’s recipe.

The cooking of apricots consists of three main components. Gluten free sponge cake, apricots and crumble. First I make the sponge cake from baking powder, vegetable milk, melted margarine, banana, cane sugar, oat flour, buckwheat flour and gluten-free flour mix, vanilla and a pinch of salt. This is all blended into a fine, even batter and poured into a springform pan. On top come the apricots, which in my case I got fresh from the organic vegetable farmer.

The icing on the cake is the crumble made with margarine, oat flour, rolled oats, gluten-free flour mix and cinnamon. Schwupps, purely in the oven and after 40 minutes, the cake is ready. Whip vegan cream , put on coffee and enjoy I would say. Are you in?

I think this recipe is genius because it’s so simple. You really can’t go wrong either, unless you stir the dough too long. This is always very important for sponge cakes, because if the dough is stirred for too long, it loses its leavening power. I love bringing vegan cakes to coffee parties that are super tasty and moist. Many people still have the prejudice that vegan cakes do not taste good. I think it’s time to convince them otherwise.

  • Gluten-free doughs are not as liquid as gluten-containing doughs made from spelt or wheat flour. Don’t let that scare you away. In the video I show how the consistency of the dough should ideally be.
  • Stir the dough only until it is smooth and uniform. Ready!
  • At the end of the baking time, do the chopstick test by poking the dough with a wooden chopstick. If it comes out dry, the cake is done. If dough sticks to wooden stick, bake for another 10 minutes and then test again.

Let’s take another look at the apricots, which are incredibly healthy and full of vitamins. They are rich in:

  • B vitamins
  • Vitamin A (1.6 milligrams per 100g)
  • Potassium
