Gluten Free Apple Cake
You know what I really like? Apples. They are probably one of my favorite fruits for some strange reason, so I tend to use them quite a bit and cooking and baking.
I’ve been gluten free for a long time now, and this gluten free apple cake is loved by just about everyone I’ve ever served it to.
New to gluten free? Don’t worry, this french gluten free apple cake is super simple to make, and tastes great. You would never know it was gluten free unless someone told you.
What are the best apples to use in a fresh apple cake?
You may be wondering what apples to use in an apple cake. I’m going to go against probably everyone else on the internet and say use whatever you enjoy to eat.
Yes there’s baking apples, cooking apples, whatever, but in my mind, I want to bake with something I like to eat!
I use honeycrisp apples in this gluten free apple cake because they are my favorite.
How to Make Gluten Free Apple Cake
Like I said this cake is simple, and you’ll only need a few simple ingredients.
- Gluten Free Flour (I use King Arthur Gluten Free Baking Mix for almost everything I make)
- Two Apples (I love honeycrisp for everything, so that’s what I use)
- Two Eggs
- Canola Oil (I bake dairy free, so I use canola oil. You could use butter if you wish!)
- Vanilla Extract
That’s it. Really. See, I told you it was easy!
One of the best parts about King Arthur Gluten Free Baking Mix is that it already has baking powder in it, so no need to add it to your recipe. If you’re using a different type of gluten free flour, be sure to add some.
Start by whisking together your eggs and sugar. Then add your vanilla and oil.
Slow whisk in your flour, in thirds. It stays easy to whisk if you add it a little at a time.
The batter will be thick one all of the flour is in, so I like to switch to a spatula, and toss the apples in the batter.
I also line my pan with parchment, and wipe the sides down with oil so I don’t have to worry about it sticking. Then I put the batter and apple mixture into an 8 or 9 inch spring form pan.
Then bake at 350F for about 35 minutes. That’s it!
