I kind of grew up with this quote but still love apples. Some things stay untouched.
Fall season means apples, cinnamon and caramel to me. Of course gloomy and rainy days too that make me stay longer in my kitchen and experiment with what nature provides. Baking apples always brings a heavenly smell along and makes home even more cozy. Combining all these three favourites of mine together made this beautiful creamy cake come to life.
Baked Apple Vegan Cheesecake is mostly a raw cake, that imitates the classical cheesecake but stays dairy free, gluten free and also refined sugar free. I love to make any cake as wholesome as possible and I truly hope you will love this recipe as much as I do.
Find the recipe and guided picture tutorial below.
In this recipe I used baked apples. You can also use apple puree if you want to keep it raw, but baked apples have a different warm taste and comforting feeling that I love
For the base I used almonds and walnuts, finding the latter combined with apples a powerful combination. If you are not a fan of these nuts, change them to your liking.
For the filling I used mainly soaked cashews and @friendlyvikings sour oat. It is very natural and great alternative for sour cream or yogurt, but if you cannot access it you can use your favourite plant based yogurt or a traditional dairy product. Friendly Vikings Sour Oats is a fermented oat yogurt.
I find eliminating dairy beneficial to my health, especially according to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), but people are different and use what works best for you.
For the caramel I soaked dates and blended them with some additional liquid to get it smooth and silky.
The description and instructions might seem a bit overwhelming, but honestly it is not hard to make, you just need a little more ingredients, have to bake apples and soak cashews in advance but the rest is rather simple.
I am using Kitchenaid small food processor for the base and both for the filling and for the caramel I love to use Blendtec Professional 800 blender with a twister jar. It is a powerful blender, leaving me with a super smooth result every time. Review and discount code here.
If you don´t have these a food processor or a blender works well. It might take you a little longer to make a smooth batter but patience will pay off.
For the caramel, if your blender is not that powerful, it is easier if you use a little more liquid in the recipe to get all the junks out. But then you have to keep in mind that it is more runny than firm. Will be delicious anyways!
