It’s an apple season! I love any kind of gluten-free apple pie and in the past I have tried so many different recipes. Recently I have been thinking how to make my favourite pie even more nutrient and healthier. Once I was experimenting with chickpea flour and it turned out just great. You have never tried it? Well, you would be very surprised how easy is to use chickpea flour also for preparing desserts. It has a lot of nutrients, protein, and is also gluten-free. Thanks to grated apples, this cake is super moist.
This recipe is gluten-free, diary-free, vegetarian and very nutrient. You can make it for breakfast or morning snack. It’s very easy to prepare it also during the weekend for the family. And the combination of apples with cinnamon and ginger makes it perfect for these autumn days.
Super-moist thanks to the apples
I love baking with apples, because you can make every cake different, based on how you cut them. More you cut or grate the apples and add them into the batter, more moist the cake will be. Grated apples will just melt while baking and they make the cake so juicy and most. I also prefer to peel them before grating but this is up to you.
Then I put some extra apples on top. I peeled them, cut in half and sliced them, placed them on the top of the cake and baked it.
You can also adjust spices as you wish. If you do not like ginger in the cakes, just skip it. This is the same for walnuts. If you are alergic to dry nuts, do not use them. The cake will be anyway very delicious.
If you are a big fun of apple pies, you can check also my apple bread recipe. It’s made from chickpea flour too, and its gluten-free, diary-free and so nutrient.
