Gluten and Dairy Free Spiced Apple Cake

Hello everyone

The last few times I’ve baked it seems to have been cupcakes that I’ve made.  While I was digging through my recipe notebook I came across my idea for a cinnamon swirled apple cake.

I’ve made sure the cake was lovely and moist with the addition of some dairy free natural yoghurt and nice chunks of fresh apple.  I made the cinnamon swirl using coconut sugar but if you don’t have this you can easily substitute it for brown sugar.

Given the lovely weather I enjoyed a peaceful evening in the garden with a slice of this cake and updating some recipes on the site.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Apple Fritters

Hello

I made these last Sunday for a little afternoon snack – perfect with a cup of coffee especially as the cold weather is back!  These apple fritters are really quick to make – just whisk together a batter similar to making pancakes and stir in the chopped apple.

I heated the leftover fritters in the oven next day and had them as a treat breakfast with some dairy free yoghurt and strawberries.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Apple Pie Blondies

Hello

Stuck at home because of the snow?  Try baking these gluten and dairy free apple pie blondies as a little treat.  These blondies have lovely warming spices with soft chunks of caramelised apple mixed in.  The smell is amazing when these are cooking in the oven – they also taste great heated slightly with a scoop of dairy free ice cream.

Hope everyone has stayed safe during this snow storm.  While not as bad as some places we were on a red snow warning for a couple of days and the snow is about knee deep in the back garden.  Fingers crossed everything gets back to normal business soon.

Enjoy!
