Paleo Apple Cake Recipe

Apple Cake (Bread) Recipe

makes about 9 kid sized servings

This easy apple cake recipe is adapted to a Paleo friendly version from: Kristina Turner’s Self-Healing Cookbook. I substituted the flour and sugar to make it Paleo friendly.  The cashew cream frosting really makes this an extra special treat. It’s could easily double as a healthy cake alternative.  See below for printable recipe.

Apple Bread INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Cups of flour (almond, coconut or your favorite Paleo flour. This year I’m going to try it with Birch Benders pancake mix… I’ll keep you posted how it turns out!)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground clove
  • 4 tsp. maple syrup (to taste)
  • 1/4 ground ginger or juice from 1 tsp fresh grated ginger (use a garlic press to extract the juice)
  • 1 vanilla bean, sliced in half and “seeded” (scrape the sides to remove all of the beans) OR  1 tbsp vanilla extract

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

2. Grease an 8×8 pan (I prefer glass) with safflower oil or grass-fed butter. 

3. Slice and Steam apples

4. Sift together the dry ingredients in a medium bowl, set aside.

5. In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients.  Stir in dry ingredients and fold in apples.

Bake for 40-45 minutes @350 degrees or until toothpick comes out clean.
