  • 2 cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • 1 ½ cup cups sugar reserve ¼ cup to sprinkle on top of the cake before baking
  • 8 tablespoons butter softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup whole milk * see note
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 apples medium size, peels removed and sliced thinly
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • Spray a 10 inch cake pan with coconut oil.
  • Line the bottom of the cake pan with parchment paper. I recommend using a springform pan. Be sure to wrap the outside bottom in foil to prevent leaks in the oven.
  • In a large bowl, add sugar, vanilla, and butter and mix 3-5 minutes.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  • Sift together the flours, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture to the bowl, mixing on low, alternating between milk and flours.
  • Pour the batter into the cake pan.
  • Add the sliced apples on top.
  • Pour the cream on top of the apples.
  • Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup sugar on top of the cake.
  • Place the springform pan on a baking sheet, or wrap the bottom in tin foil just in case there is a leak in your springform pan! Bake for 45 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack.


  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. Xanthan Gum - If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. I used milk but other dairy-free kinds of milk will work but I do not recommend canned coconut milk.
  4. This cake will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
