Gluten free apple rustic cake

I have been wanting to bake a cake for a few weeks now. Because of school I haven’t had a chance but over the past weekend I have made a conscious effort to make this gluten free apple rustic cake since I was craving something sweet.

I also wanted to make the cake gluten free so I came up with this version. While baking I totally forgot to add the fat, in this case I wanted to add coconut oil, so I really was hoping the cake turn out good when I realized I totally forgot to add it.

To my surprise, since I almost never forget to add the fat to my baking goods, it turned out great. I think it was the fact that I used coconut flour and this type of flour has a high fat content.

For this gluten free apple rustic cake I used a combination of flours. I used coconut and brown rice flour. These are two of my favorite flours to use when it comes to bake gluten free goodies. They work great for muffins and cake batters.

I almost always use Bob’s Red Mill flours. I love their flaxseed meal, hulled hemp seeds and many of their healthy products.  Make sure you visit their website. They have anything you will need for your healthy baking and cooking.

For this gluten free apple rustic cake you can also use other type of fresh fruit like peaches and pears instead of apples. A combo of peaches and blueberries would work great so if you like to use that go ahead. I think I will next time I make it.

I hope you like this gluten free apple rustic cake. It is super simple to make and the taste is super awesome even though I forgot to add that fat.
