GFCF Apple Spice Cake Recipe

Apple Spice Cake

4 ½ cups peeled, chopped apples
2 to 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil (I used canola)
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 ½ cups flour - use any GF blend.
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon allspice
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon cloves
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (I cooked it at 325 in a glass dish). Grease and flour 13 x 9 inch pan. Sprinkle apples with lemon juice. Cover and set aside. Beat oil with the sugar and eggs until creamy. Sift flour with salt, baking soda, baking powder and spices. Gradually beat into oil mixture. Beat in vanilla extract (batter will be stiff). Fold in apples. Pour into pan. Bake 50-55 minutes in a metal pan or 1 hour in a glass pan, or until cake tests done with a toothpick in the center.

I cut the apples into little pieces, but I think shredding them like you do carrots for a carrot cake would work also. I think this would also be good with pecans (my son doesn’t like nuts, so I didn’t try it that way.

This makes a very large cake, it filled my pan up totally.
