Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for  Gluten and Dairy Free Caramel Apple Cake.

Happy Mother’ Day to my mum!  This year we celebrated it a day early as my Mum and Dad are heading away to Spain for a week on an amazing trip.  We went out for a family lunch at our local pub which has a great gluten free menu with lots of options they can easily adapt to be dairy free as well. I opted for chicken fajitas complete with gluten free flour tortillas – delicious.

Today’s recipe is for a gluten and dairy free salted caramel apple cake I made a few weeks ago.   I love the combination of salted caramel and apple – I’ve made some cupcakes with these flavours before and wanted to try out a larger cake recipe.  A slice of this heated in the microwave for 30 seconds makes a perfect dessert.

For Mother’s Day this year I actually made some tiramisu cupcakes which I’ll share the recipe for next week.
