  1. Set 2 tbs chopped walnuts aside. Place the remaining walnuts and the sultanas in a bowl and pour the pomegranate liqueur over them in the bowl. Soak for 30'.

  3. Using a pastry brush grease a 20cm round pie pan with some sunflower seed oil.
  4. Add in a large bowl the flour, the baking powder, the brown sugar, the ground gloves, the cinnamon, the ginger and the salt.
  5. In another bowl pour the applesauce, the sunflower seed oil and the almond milk. Add the pomegranate liqueur-soaked walnuts and sultanas with the liqueur left.
  6. Then start folding and mixing the solids into the liquids. Note: With a rubber spatula whisk gently scrapping around the edge and finishing by folding the mixture on top of itself.
  7. Pour into a pie pan. Slash cross and side slashes before baking. Add chopped walnuts to the top.
  8. Bake for 50'.
