This apple cake is the kind of baked treat that push me to a “must have break” in the afternoon. Believe me! (the perfect indulgence while Lia takes her usual nap)… a cup of tea, a book and a good slice of this apple cake and everything becomes a super –nice- happy-moment.  Gratifying myself with something that I made just feels so good! Funny about this cake is that I’d have never thought in a million years that I would be making + eating a cake without gluten + refined sugar and milk! 


Since changing my eating habits, I started experiment a lot with gluten free flours and is something that I find incredibly interesting.  I mean, making a cake without ingredients; such us regular raising flour, milk or refined sugar, was not possible to me at all. Simply because, I didn’t understand the importance of whole foods and how the implementation and use of rich + wholesome ingredients ( instead of refined/ processed ingredients) work and how come they could provide nourishment + health benefits to the body. But I guess everything has it’s own time, no?!


So as I was saying changing my eating habits took me to all that experimentation with gluten free flours and in my process of finding new ways with ingredients, I found a few different (GF) flour combinations and recipes to play with. With time and after a while, I found myself creating my version of a gluten free cake, a cake that can be eaten any time of the day. It’s a simple, humble cake but with an amazing flavor that can surely make one ask for seconds!


Now, let me share with you a bit more about this cake, ok. 

This cake doesn’t take longer to cook, (which is wonderful when you’re a busy  mom, (like me / or just a busy lady with no much time for baking), the other thing is that this is totally foolproof ( so, don’t worry if this is your first time experimenting with wholesome ingredients because this is incredibly easy to put together). I also like making this cake with walnuts; it adds a bit more crunch + nutty flavor and complements the apples really good. So you can try either, with or without the walnuts. They're both wonderfully delicious!!!


Apples are just amazing! Full of nutrients and ideal to enhance the flavor of this cake. But don't just take my word for it and jump over Helen's website from the well-beingsecrets.com and read her amazing article; ''34 Science Backed Health Benefits from Apples''.

Happy Cooking!
