Coat the sides of an 8x8 Pyrex dish with baking spray and place a single, tight layer of (about) 3 small sliced honey crisp or gala apples on the bottom.
In a small saucepan combine:
3/4 cup sugar
3 TBSP of water
Melt over medium heat until it caramelizes. Keep an eye on it, swirling the sauce pan if needed. Mine definitely crystallized before it caramelized but I used it anyway! Pour the caramel over the apples and set aside.
Melt 8 oz Miyokos vegan butter and combine it with:
1 cup honey
5 oz oat milk
6 TBSP liquid vegan egg (I use
JUST or Trader Joes)
Squeeze of lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
In a mixing bowl combine:
2 cups flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp each cinnamon and nutmeg (you could add ginger)
1/2 tsp each baking soda and baking powder
Add the dry ingredients to the honey-butter mixture and pour over the apples.
Bake 60-75 minutes at 350 degrees. You don't want to dry it out but test the center with a toothpick or skewer to make sure the center is well cooked.
Let cool, scrape the sides of the Pyrex with a knife to loosen the cake if needed (mine didn't) and turn upside down on a cake plate to serve
