1 and 3/4 cups self raising flour

Combine flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, salt, brown sugar and margarine. Mix until it resembles bread crumbs.

Blend the apple sauce and Ultimalt in a food blender to form a smooth mixture. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix gently to form a cake batter.

Pour the batter into lightly greased/lined muffin or pudding trays. 

Bake in the oven (middle shelf) at 180C for 25 minutes. 

Serve hot/warm with vegan cream or ice cream, a drizzle of syrup and a light dusting of cinnamon.
