Apple Cranberry Tea Cake: FAQS Answered

I recently posted a recipe for an Apple Cranberry Tea Cake on my blog, and I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it. So, I thought I’d answer some of the most frequently asked questions in a blog post. Keep reading to learn more about this delicious vegan cake!


What kind of tea should I use for this cake?

I like to use Earl Grey tea, but you can really use any kind of tea you like. Just make sure to brew it nice and strong so that the flavor comes through in the cake.


Can I make this cake without cranberries?

Yes, you can certainly make the cake without cranberries. Just substitute in another dried fruit like raisins or apricots. Or, if you’re not a fan of dried fruit, you could leave it out altogether. The cake will still be delicious!


Can I make this cake gluten-free?

Yes, just substitute your favorite gluten-free flour blend for the all-purpose flour called for in the recipe. Easy peasy!

Can I substitute cranberries for other fruits in the Apple Cranberry Tea Cake recipe?

While the recipe specifically calls for cranberries, you can experiment with other fruits. However, remember that cranberries provide a unique tartness and flavor to the tea cake. If you substitute, consider fruits with similar texture and tartness to ensure the best results.

Can I use unsalted butter in the Apple Cranberry Tea Cake recipe?

Yes, you can use unsalted butter in the recipe. Simply substitute an equal amount of unsalted butter for the called-for amount in the recipe. Keep in mind that using unsalted butter allows you to have better control over the overall saltiness of the cake, as you can adjust the amount of salt to your liking.

Can I use granulated sugar instead of powdered sugar for the Apple Cranberry Tea Cake?

Yes, you can use granulated sugar instead of powdered sugar for the cake. However, remember that granulated sugar will have a slightly different texture and appearance than powdered sugar. Powdered sugar dissolves more easily and provides a smoother finish, while granulated sugar may create a slightly coarser texture. Feel free to experiment and use whichever type of sugar like brown.

I hope this post has answered some of the questions you may have had about my Apple Cranberry Tea Cake recipe. If not, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email, and I’ll be happy to answer your question. Happy baking!
