Apple Pie Cake

Apple Pie Cake

If you had to choose your top favorite fruits, what would you choose?  I would choose:

  • apples
  • bananas
  • oranges

Three very simple and basic fruits that you can usually find year around – although apples and oranges are better when they are in season.  Of course, I love all fruits, but these three are my top three…so naturally, I like to include them in my recipes.  I especially love apples and fall baking, they just go together perfectly – wouldn’t you agree!

Since they go together so well, I thought I would share this delicious Apple Pie Cake recipe with you!  It’s the perfect combination of fresh apples and fall baking, and when it’s in your oven baking it makes your house smell insanely yummy!

This cake is light and fluffy and sweetened with a little bit of pure maple syrup and fresh apples.  It’s light enough to eat for breakfast, a snack, or a light dessert…If you want to make it a more decadent dessert, feel free to add a little bit of homemade caramel sauce.  It takes this simple cake to a whole new level that makes it down right addictive.  As an added bonus, this cake is gluten free and paleo friendly.  Made with high fiber coconut flour, you won’t feel guilty at all when you decide to eat cake for breakfast :).

Note:  If you would like to add the caramel sauce, use the caramel recipe from my Twix Pie
