Apple Spice Cake … and it’s gluten free BUT you can prepare it with regular flour if you like.
It’s really tasty and has a beautiful, crunchy crust.
I used Pamela’s Artisan Flour Blend. (gluten free flour mix)
I have also made it with Pamela’s Baking Mix too.
- Grease and flour your pan and set aside.
- Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Then cut the butter into the dry mixture. (I always use my hands to do this, it’s just more effective)
- Add the sugar.
- Peel the apples and slice them. I use a spiral slicer. You can leave them as long pieces or cut them in half.
- Dust them w/additional flour and add to the flour/butter/sugar mixture.
- Beat eggs, add to the flour mixture along with the Almond milk (or regular milk)
Pat the mixture down into the pan. (it will be thick)
I used a tart pan because I have somehow misplaced my spring form pan.
That would work best for this cake.
Sprinkle the top with the sugar/pumpkin pie spice mixture.
Bake at 350 for approximately 50 minutes.
Cover with foil if it begins to brown too much before it is done inside.
Remove from the oven and enjoy!
It’s great eaten warm out of the oven with vanilla ice cream….
…or even vanilla custard. Yum.
I hope you like it as much as we do!
