large pink lady apples
peeled and sliced thinly
I used Myers Dark Rum
Authentic Foods Multi-Blend Gluten Free Flour
organic white sugar
plus one tablespoon of sugar
organic whole milk
or raw milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray either a 9 inch cake pan or a pan with 6 three inch cake sections with coconut oil.
Cut parchment paper to line the bottom of the pan(s) and spray bottom with coconut oil.
In a small sauce pan, cook butter on low heat until slightly browned. (About 5 minutes) Stir often.
Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
In a small sauce pan, add two inches of water and apple slices. Cook apple slices on low heat until they soften. Keep an eye on them so they don't get mushy.
Drain water from apples, toss with 1 tablespoon of the dark rum and lemon juice, and let cool.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together gluten free flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and sugar.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, browned butter, vanilla, and remaining three tablespoons of dark rum.
Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and blend carefully.
Gently fold in apples.
Pour into pan(s).
Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of sugar onto each mini cake (or 1 tablespoon of sugar onto a whole cake.)
Bake for 30-45 minutes, depending on pan size. Less time is needed if you are baking 6 three inch cakes.
Remove from oven and let cakes cool on a cooling rack.
Enjoy while warm.
Reheat if having it later.
I used Authentic Foods multiblend in this recipe. I have also tested the recipe with Bob's 1 to 1 Gluten Free Blend and King Arthur Gluten Free Measure for Measure.
