Jewish apple cake is also non-dairy, and it may therefore be eaten with meals containing meat, in accordance with Jewish laws of kashrut.

It is suspected to have originated in Poland.[2]

It is made with vegetable oil, unlike other American cakes, which are usually made with butter. Therefore, under the laws of Kashrut, you can eat it after a meat meal under the Jewish dietary laws that prohibit mixing meat and milk. Foods cooked with oil are eaten at Hanukkah.
