Very good. Created from Gluten Free Apple Cake and Apple Cinnamon Muffins With Crumble Topping (Gluten-Free) . This cake can be eaten warm, or at room temperature which we like.
- 1 cup pecans, finely chopped or 1 cup blanched slivered almond, crushed
- 2 tablespoons brown rice flour
- 4 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄3 cup chopped pecans or 1⁄3 cup blanched slivered almond, crushed
- 1⁄2 cup rice flour (white)
- 1⁄2 cup brown rice flour
- 1⁄3 cup tapioca starch
- 3⁄4 teaspoon guar gum (xanthan gum may be substituted ~ corn derived)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1⁄2 cup canola oil
- 3⁄4 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 egg replacer eggs
- 4 tablespoons orange juice
- 1 1⁄2 cups chopped apples (about 2 apples)
- Preheat oven to 325°F.
- Prepare a small deep pan by greasing and dusting with white rice flour.
- Mix all strudel ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, sieve together all the dry ingredients. (except strudel and apples).
- Add the wet ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon.
- Add the chopped apples and stir to combine.
- Scoop half the batter into the prepared pan.
- then layer half the strudel mixture on top of the batter.
- Add remaining batter and then remaining topping.
- Place in the oven and bake approximately 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Cool at least 10 minutes before serving. I like it better cooled down to room temperature even more.
This is amazing. The cake was baked in an 8 inch square pan and easily serves 9. This is a moist and deliciously flavored cake. No one would ever guess that it is gluten free. I used 1 1/2 granny smith apples with the peel on. During the clean up phase I realized that the chopped nuts for the batter were still sitting on the counter but they weren't missed. This was served at room temperature with homemade vanilla bean ice cream on the side.
Very easy to make and came out great. I find gluten free recipes are much lighter anf tastier. My husband loved it.
Enjoyed this cake, I especially appreciate that it's gluten free & vegan. My photo looks a lot darker because I used all brown rice flour. I baked it in a loaf pan, which fit the batter & topping perfectly, but was a little tricky to get out and cut without ruining the streusel. Next time I'd probably try a small 8x8'ish. The one thing I would be tempted to change is the amount of baking powder & soda, I can definintely detect that soda flavour, I wonder if you could get away with less. I'm sure I'll be making this one again, thanks!
