This easy gluten free pear bundt cake recipe is made with fresh pears. Baking gluten free bundt cakes from scratch is one of my favorite desserts. This spiced pear cake is perfect for fall and is amazing with powdered sugar sprinkled on top.



3 cups Gluten Free Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Sea Salt
2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Ground Allspice
1/4 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
1 cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
1/2 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
3 large Eggs
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 cup Milk
1 1/2 cup Pears, peeled and diced


Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9-inch bundt pan with butter or coconut oil. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl whisk together the gluten free flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, baking soda, sea salt, ground cinnamon, ground allspice and ground nutmeg. Set aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer beat the sugar, brown sugar and butter until combined and fluffy. Add the applesauce, eggs, vanilla and milk. Beat until combined. 

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat until just combined. 

Add the pears and fold into the batter with a spatula to keep the diced chunks from being smashed by the mixer.

Pour the cake batter into the greased 9-inch bundt pan. 

Bake at 325 degrees for 60 minutes. The cake will be browned and a toothpick will come out clean when the cake is done.

Let stand in the pan for 10 minutes and then turn out onto a cooling rack.

Let the cake cool completely before dusting with powdered sugar.


You could also use a sweet apple variety in this recipe.
