Apple Sponge Cake
Bit late posting this but better late than never?
This cake is tasty but also gluten-free, dairy free and no processed sugar! Quite easy too as it’s all in one bowl yay. If you’re wondering how a cake is even possible without wheat, dairy and sugar well I tell you it is. I used gluten-free flour, soya butter (does not taste as bad as everyone says it does. It’s like mildly salty watered down butter) and then honey* and peanut butter to sweeten it up. This was served with some coconut cream, a great alternative to real dairy cream….as seen here http://nuttykitchen.com/2010/06/01/coconut-whipped-cream/
*So there is sugar but it’s in a more natural state, you could alternatively use maple syrup. I don’t think this makes it suitable for diabetics, if you are one please let me know thanks.
160g Gluten Free Self Raising Flour
130g Soya Butter
130g Favourite Honey/ Maple Syrup
60g Peanut Butter
3 Tbsp Ground Almonds/ Linseed
1 tsp Gluten free baking powder
Pinch of salt
3-4 Small (cooking )Apples or 1 Large
1 Tbsp Honey
1. Preheat your oven to 180C. Take all your sponge ingredients and whip them up till pale and fluffy. If the mix is a bit too runny add some more PB.
2. Pour you cake mix into a greased and lined deep 10″ cake tin with a removable base. Peel and slice your apple(s) into nice chunky slices. Arrange prettily on top your cake and quickly pop it in the oven. Bake for 15-20mins.
3. When it’s gone all golden lovely and you can poke it with a skewer that comes out clean then your cake is ready. Still hot drizzle your honey over your cake, alow to cool in tin.
4. Serve slices with coconut cream, fresh berries and homemade biscuits**
