    Enjolinfam's Note:

    This basic vegan cake recipe can be used to make a variety of delicious desserts. Free of dairy and egg and with less sugar, it's a "healthier" cake. Can turn this into a nice Apple Cake (the instructions for this variation below) and I'm sure there are many other creative ways to use this cake recipe.From "The Best of Silver Hills" cookbook. Enjoy!

      I believe there's an error in the quantity of liquid for this cake. My blender isn't very powerful, so I ground the nuts before mixing them with the water, and it turned into a paste in the blender; maybe I shouldn't have ground them, and that was the problem. In any case, I ended up adding at least double the liquid to made a proper batter consistency. It also calls for 2 teaspoons egg substitute; and I made another mistake in not mixing my ground flax seed with water, so my cake was a bit crumbly; but that might also be attributed to the additions I made (pineapple and coconut flakes). In spite of all my mistakes, it was a very good tasting cake, and I'll certainly make it again.
