This cake is filled with soft, sweet apple slices, has a crisp, crunchy top and goes perfectly with a large dollop of vanilla ice-cream!
We love apples and especially in cooking.
Apple puree is great to substitute for sugar in recipes, perfectly delicious in warm Gluten Free Easy Apple Crumble and so delicious in this recipe for Gluten-Free Apple and Ginger Cake!
Just simply by laying some sliced apples on the base of a cake tin and then pouring the mixture over the top, the apples then melt into the mixture while cooking and it comes out as the most delicious cake!
With the extra sprinkle of some caster sugar on top of this Gluten Free Apple and Ginger Cake, it really makes a crispy top and a very soft, smooth centre to the cake.
As the apples melt into the cake mixture, it gives the centre of the cake a pudding-like texture that can be eaten warm or even stored in an airtight container to be served as cake the next day.
The tip is to make sure you let the cake cool in the cake tin for around 10 mins.
This is when the crispy top becomes crunchy and gives the cake its own special character.
(This Gluten-Free Apple and Ginger Cake is perfect for if you are Coeliac, gluten intolerant, on a gluten-free diet or are wheat intolerant!)
