• 1.5 cups – whole-wheat pastry flour
• 1.5 cups – all-purpose flour
• 2 tsp – baking powder
• 1 tsp – baking soda
• 1/2 tsp – salt
• 1.3 cup – Sugar
• 2 tsp – ground Cinnamon
• (Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.)
• In a small bowl mix together:
• 3 – granny smith apples, cored, deseeded, then chopped into a fairly small dice
• 1/3 cup – Sugar
• 1 tbsp – Molasses (you can use dark Brown sugar instead of the regular Sugar and skip the Molasses.
• In a large bowl, whisk together the following wet ingredients:
• 3 tbsp – flax meal + 9 tbsp water
• 1/2 cup – Canola Oil or other flavorless vegetable oil
• 1/2 cup – soy Milk
• 1 tsp – vanilla extract
• 1/3 cup – crushed Pineapple


  1. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until well-blended, but do not overwork.
  2. Add in the apples and mix together so they are evenly distributed through the batter. This is a pretty thick batter so you’ll get a good workout for your hand.
  3. Pour the batter into a greased and floured tube or bundt pan and smooth the top.
  4. Place in a 350-degree oven and bake around 80 minutes or until a toothpick inserted close to the center comes out with moist crumbs sticking to it.
  5. Remove and cool on a rack about 30 minutes before sliding a knife around the edges and then unmolding.
  6. Simmer over medium-low heat until the syrup turns brown.
  7. Turn off the heat and very carefully and slowly (because it will splatter).
  8. For caramel glaze:
  9. Take 1/2 cup of soy milk and 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  10. Now add 1/2 cup lightly toasted pecans and stir (you can chop the pecans if you like).
  11. Pour over the top of the cake and allow the glaze to set before serving.
