Apple Cake Gluten Free Dessert

Apple cake is a favorite that we have now made gluten free. The apple is nice and spicy. The cake part has fresh ginger added to it, this gives a delicious and distinctive flavor, which is so different from adding ground ginger.

I tried a new ingredient in the gluten free cake. Previously I have been adding guar gum to help replace the function of gluten. After I saw that Jenny from Au Naturale Nutrition  had used  psyllium husk powder in her wonderful looking dinner rolls, I had to try it in this gluten free apple cake.  In this recipe I have replaced guar gum with psyllium husks as I did not have the powdered psyllium.  I was very pleased with the result and I will be using it again.

Ingredients for the Apple Cake Gluten Free Dessert


1 and 1/2 pounds of cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced

1/2 to 3/4 cup sultanas/raisins

Sweetener of your choice – I use a combination of Stevia and Zero (Both natural sweeteners)

Spices – Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger (optional or according to taste)

Cook the apples with and all other ingredients with a little water.  Don’t overcook them, it is nice when the slices still have some form. If you end up with too much apple juice, drain some off and keep it to serve with the dessert.

When the apples are cooked place in a greased bowl.

If you want to stretch the dessert to go further you can alter the amount of apple under the cake. It is wonderful served with whipped cream or coconut cream. On the cake below I sprinkled cinnamon on the top.
