Gluten Free Autumn Apple Spice Cake

Gluten Free Autumn Apple Spice Cake


One of my favorite things about the fall season is all of the delicious flavors! This recipe for Gluten Free Autumn Apple Spice Cake includes many of those fall flavors - apples, cinnamon and pumpkin spice! It would certainly make a great addition to your Thanksgiving dessert table. In addition to being full of flavor it is also gluten, dairy and refined sugar free! 


 

Gluten Free Autumn Apple Spice Cake


Ingredients for cake:

3/4 cup almond flour
1/2 cup gluten free flour blend
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon xantham gum
1/2 cup honey
1 egg
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1 small apple chopped

For the "icing":
2 tablespoons softened coconut oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 and lightly grease an 8" x 8" pan.
Mix all dry ingredients (from almond flour to xantham gum) in a medium size bowl.
In a large bowl mix 1/2 cup of honey, egg, applesauce and coconut oil. 
Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until well blended. Then stir in the apples.
Pour batter into greased pan and bake for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
Mix the icing ingredients in a small bowl until well blended. Once cake has cooled, pour the icing over the cake right before serving.

  12. The xanthan gum is used as a binding agent - helps hold it together and keeps it from crumbling. I have read that you can use flax seed or psyllium husk instead but have never tried that myself.
