Holidays Vegan Apple Cake Recipe   No Bake Cake

This vegan apple cake no bake cake is one of the easiest cakes I’ve ever made. Three layers of biscuits, two layers of cooked apples and a few hours waiting for the apples in the cake to set. That’s it! Apples, sugar, apple juice, biscuits and 1 packet of vanilla pudding powder.

This vegan apple cake couldn’t be cheaper either. And on top of that: if you make sure you buy the right vegan biscuits this cake is vegan or fasting time suitable as well.

I’ve made this no bake cake about a month ago to take with us when visiting some friends. My son saw me making  vegan apple cake, cooking the apples and then all the biscuits laying around and could hardly wait for us to get there, so that he could have a piece of this cake.

He does love his apple cake dearly. No matter what kind of apple cake and I do have quite a few in my repertoire (check here and you will find them all), he gets impatient only when hearing the words apple cake.

So coming back to this particular cake and that particular occasion, needless to say that as soon as we reached our friends’ house and sat down, he immediately asked if the coffee for us adults is ready because he would like to start eating the  apple cake at that very moment.

Everybody laughed, but he remain serious not seeing where the joke was, he really meant what he was saying. My friend hurried up with the coffee, so that dear Bruno could finally have his cake. And he did have his cake, like most of the times when it comes to apple cake I had to stop him after his 3rd or 4th piece…

Otherwise I hope you are having a nice weekend and that the weather is treating you better than us. After a couple of wonderful sunny days, it has been raining incessantly for the past 24 hours here. Not quite the weather to go out and play for the kids, so maybe we will make this no bake cake or vegan apple cake again today. I am sure none of them would mind. πŸ™‚

  • 1 kg/ 2.2 lbs apples
  • 150 g/ 5.3 oz/ ΒΎ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 300 ml/ 10.1 fl.oz/ 1 ΒΌ cups apple juice
  • 1 packet Dr. Oetker vanilla pudding powder
  • 200 g/ 7 oz (vegan) biscuits (or as much as you need to get 3 layers)
  • icing sugar


Peel and roughly grate the apples. Place in a pot, add the sugar, cinnamon and apple juice and let stand for about 20-30 minutes or until you notice that the apples have released more juices. Stir in the pudding powder, mix well, place on the hob and bring to a boil stirring often. Let bubble a couple of times until the mixture thickens like a pudding.

Line a baking tray or a rectangular dish (20x30 cm/ 8x11 inches) with plastic wrap. Place one layer of biscuits in the dish. Pour over half of the apple mixture and cover with another layer of biscuits. Pour the rest of the apples on top, level and add the third layer of biscuits. Cover with plastic wrap, let cool slightly, then place in the fridge for about 3 hours or until the apple mixture is cold and set.

When ready to serve remove the plastic wrap from the top of the cake. Place a suitable serving dish on top of the cake, grab both dishes and turn them simultaneously, so that the cake falls on the serving platter. Remove the second plastic wrap. Sprinkle the cake with icing sugar and cut into squares the size of the biscuits.

This looks so good! It’s amazing how well these no-bake cakes are and how great it is to use biscuits/cookies as the “cake” layers! Love your presentation, too.

Very creative idea. In my opinion apple jam is food you allways suprais again HOWdelicious it is πŸ™‚

It looks great and I love adding fruits in cakes, it makes them a bit healthier. What can I use instead of the pudding powder? (I never use pudding powder).

Adina 19/03/2017 - 08:52

Pudding powder contains only starch and aroma, so it should be ok to take starch and vanilla extract or essence. One packet contains 37 g powder, I would take the same amount.

I’ve never had anything like this before! This looks so good! This would make a lovely afternoon snack with a cup of coffee πŸ™‚ It was beautiful here this past weekend, but we have snow today, so it’s not a very spring-like day. Oh well! Have a great week!

grace 20/03/2017 - 16:27

this is a first! what a clever idea, and your filling is just the right consistency to make for stunning slices. bravo!

I super love this recipe. What a great idea. I can see why Bruno couldn’t wait to sink his teeth into this dish! After a week of sun and above temperatures, we will receive a week of rain. We need it so I won’t complain. πŸ™‚

Wow my mouth is melting this looks so so good.


Balvinder 21/03/2017 - 04:33

This looks wonderful, Adina. I really want to make it. I just have to find out if the vanilla powder is gluten free. I have seen this in grocery stores. I checked your apple caramel cake. It looked insanely delicious too.

Sissi 22/03/2017 - 21:46

What a fantastic idea! I recently saw something similar but in savoury version (I intend to post my version one day!) and also thought “how clever!”. The easiest cakes are often the most delicious, so I’m bookmarking your recipe (moreover, I cannot imagine an apple cake I wouldn’t like!).
