This healthy apple tea cake is the perfect recipe to whip up this Mother’s Day. This epic, delish, super easy, healthy recipe is brought to you by our faves Supabarn!

This cake really is the goods. A somewhat underrated sweet treat really… but how freaking yum was apple tea cake when you were growing up?
We loved the homemade kind but mostly we remember those iced apple bun things from the bakery. Remember them? They’re in the shape of hot dog buns, not really bread, more like cake with delish apple and yum as pink icing on top. Far out… they were so yum! The icing was everything (hello sugar).
So yes these delish apple iced bun things were so delish but soooo not good for us.
Healthy apple tea cake wins. Becuase no nasties, only good stuff.
We highly recommend you serve the apple tea cake warm with a dollop of natural yoghurt or coconut ice cream.
