This easy recipe for gluten free apple almond cake is moist and perfect paired with coffee or tea. I used almond flour to give the cake a delicious flavor and texture.



2 medium Apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup Gluten Free Flour
1/2 cup Almond Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 tsp. Apple Pie Spice
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 large Eggs
6 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter, melted
1/2 cup Sliced Almonds


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 9 inch spring form pan with butter or coconut oil. Set aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer blend together 1/2 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, gluten free flour, almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, apple pie spice, vanilla, eggs and melted butter.

Peel, core and slice the apples into skinny chunks. Fold half the apple slices into the batter. Pour the batter into the greased baking pan

Top the batter with the rest of the apple slices. Sprinkle the sliced almonds over the apples. Finally sprinkle 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar over the top.

Bake the cake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes. Cake will be browned and pulling away from the pan when it's done.


I like to use a sweet apple variety for this recipe.
