This wonderful apple spice walnut cake is full of flavour, super moist and great as a snack with a cup of tea or a fulfilling dessert when you're entertaining! It's gluten-free, dairy-free and sweetened with applesauce, maple syrup and a hint of coconut sugar.
This cake was inspired by my incredibly popular Pumpkin Spice Cake ! It's super moist, flavourful, fluffy, and grain-free!
I love baking with seasonal ingredients because it makes every recipe so much more special! This cake is the perfect example of that because we love going apple picking in the Fall and then making this cake with fresh-picked apples. It doesn't get any better than that!
This cake will make your whole home smell absolutely delicious thanks to the warming spices like cinnamon and ginger.
I love the smell of something baking especially as the seasons change and it's a bit cooler outside, it's so comforting to smell this cake baking!
Did I mention that this cake is loaded with nutrients as well?! Apples contain a type of soluble fibre called pectin which is soothing for your digestive system and has also been shown to help reduce LDL cholesterol. Apples are rich in quercetin which boosts your immune system and malic acid which naturally helps to remove carcinogens and toxins from the blood.
This recipe is really easy to make! A couple of things to note: if you can't eat nuts just omit them and you've got a nut-free dessert!
I have updated this recipe so it has more coconut flour in it. I like the texture better. I love having this cake with a schlop of coconut milk vanilla ice cream! You won't be disappointed!
This wonderful cake is full of flavour, super moist and wonderful as a snack with a cup of tea or a fulfilling dessert when you're entertaining!
*I use only 1/4 cup maple syrup and 20-30 drips liquid stevia. If you're using large eggs, you won't need to add any more water to make up for the loss of 1/4 cup liquid by cutting the syrup in half.
