Can Baking Cakes Be Easy?

Have you experienced the disappointment of a cake-baking failure? Many of us have been there—when you just want to throw it all away so that no one will see the evidence.

Well, this cake will not disappoint you. It is easy to make and really tasty. I have made it a couple of times now, and every single time it comes out marvelously. I am so proud of myself. And hungry again.

Sweet apples add a lot of flavor to this cake.

Cook Time

Prep time: 40 min
Cook time: 40 min
Ready in: 1 hour 20 min
Yields: 12 pieces of cake


  • 1 cup wheat or spelt meal
  • 1 cup wholesome flour (any type: wheat, spelt, rye, gluten free, etc.)
  • 1 to 2 cups walnuts or hazelnuts, ground
  • 200 grams nondairy cream (any type: oat, rice, etc.)
  • 1 cup brown cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa or ground chocolate
  • 10 grams vanilla sugar (vanilla-flavored sugar), or pinch of vanilla powder or dash of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 to 3 apples, grated
  • pinch salt
  • nondairy milk (any type: soy, oat, rice, etc.), if needed


  1. Mix all the ingredients together. Mix well to make a smooth batter. Add nondairy milk if the texture of the dough is too dry.
  2. Let it stand (in the cold) for 30 minutes.
  3. Pour the batter into a cake model; I used a star-shaped model. You can use a larger, square model if you want a thinner, biscuit-like cake.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes in a preheated oven (356°F).
  5. Wait until it cools down.
  6. Now you can decorate the cake as you wish—use marmalade, chocolate, creams, fruits, etc. You can also pour some apple juice over the top to make it juicier.
  7. Cut. Eat. Enjoy!

Where Did This Recipe Come From?

We were invited to our daughter's friend's birthday party. This friend's grandma always makes cakes for her birthday, and they are always spectacularly delicious. I wondered what kind of cake she would make this time—I knew we wouldn't be disappointed.

And we weren't! The cake was heavenly. I really wanted the recipe to try it for myself.

Overcoming a Fear of Baking

There I was. I had all the ingredients. Ready. Waiting. Deep inhale and exhale—let's start.

But wait. This is really simple—just mix it all together. All right, I did that. Then I poured it into the star-shaped cake model. OK, let's see if the oven will destroy the cake. Let's wait for 40 minutes.

After the cake was baked, there was the surprise: It was fine, fluffy and yummy-looking. I was really happy—all was fine, and the baking was successful.

My first experience baking this cake gave me courage, so I baked it several more times. The great thing is that you can also experiment with different nuts, creams, toppings, and so forth. So, please give it a try; it really won't disappoint you.
