Vegan Apple Cake Recipe

I took a friends Apple Cake recipe and made it vegan. It came out EXCELLENT!
One Bowl Apple Cake - This cake is so moist and rich and just perfect for this time of year. (and easy to make!)Ingredients:
2 Flax Eggs (1TB of ground flaxseed and 3 TB of water = 1 Flax egg. Double this recipe for 2)
1 3/4 cups sugar I used cane juice crystals
2 heaping teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 C. of Apple Sauce in place of oil
6 medium Gala or Fuji or Honey Crisp apples
2 cups Whole Wheat Pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

Directions:Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix the Flax eggs, sugar, cinnamon and apple sauce. Peel and slice the apples and add to mixture in bowl (coating as you go to keep apples from turning brown.) Mix together the baking powder and flour and add to the ingredients in the bowl. Mix well (best with a fork) until all of the flour is absorbed by the wet ingredients. Pour mixture into a greased one 9x13 or two 9″ round pans. Bake for approximately 55 minutes.By getting rid of eggs and oil we're virtually losing the fat. The flavor and moistness are in there. Trust me...It's EXCELLENT! There's still sugar. I'm working on a healthier replacement but the alternatives haven't worked in place of cane juice crystals.
