Gluten-Free Apple and Sour Cherry Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Tisme

I found this recipe in a newspaper and immediately thought of a fantastic lady **Jubes**, who likes to cook gluten free, and has some great gluten free recipes for any-one who has an intolerance. I have been lucky enough to have found and since converse with **Jubes** through here Recipe Zaar, and I sent her this Gluten free recipe, which **Jubes** made for herself and her family. Both **Jubes and I think it would work well with regular flour, but as yet I have not tried (but am going to). This recipe is called a cake, but **Jubes** suggests its more of a pudding type cake, but also says its super easy to make!!! So I have **Jubes** to thank for this recipe being posted!!!!! Thanks Mate!!!!

I'm not sure what happened, but my cake did not cook. I used a 9 inch round pan and baked it at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes before reducing the oven to 300 degrees F for another 45 and though it was golden and tested done, the center was raw when I cut into it. I made the cake substituting 2 (drained) cans of sweet cherries for the apples and the flavor was great--I will try this again and maybe bake at 325 and make sure the eggs are fully up to room temperature. Thank you!
