Recipe: Gluten and Dairy-free Apple Cinnamon Cake

This is a very easy recipe for a delicious cake. The cake is without flour, hence gluten-free and has no dairy in it. George loves to bake at the moment and nearly every day we turn the kitchen into a big mess. Just kidding.

Ingredients for 8 pieces

  • 3 medium sized apples
  • 150g xylitol (natural sugar alternative)
  • 200 g ground almonds
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 sachet vanilla sugar

Preheat the oven to 180°C or gas mark 4.

Peel the apples and cut them into small pieces. Mix the cinnamon and vanilla sugar with the apple pieces in a large bowl. Add all the other ingredients and mix until everything is blended. Pour the mixture into a round cake tin and bake for 45-60 minutes until the cake is risen and firm.

Turn the cake out on a wire rack to cool and dust with a little bit icing sugar if you like. Enjoy!
