Apple Spice Cake, low-carb, gluten- and dairy free

The fall is coming more and more for every day, and this weekend the apples are ready for  harvesting. As every year, I hide away some of them for baking, and the rest we juice to enjoy the rest of the year.

This apple cake is a cross between a classic apple cake and a spice cake. I used the apple varieties Summer Red and Åkerø, but you can use any sort.

Serves: 8
Time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
Difficulty: Easy

6 organic linseed eggs
4 tablespoons tagatose
1 tablespoon coconut flour
5 tablespoons almond flour
1 tablespoon husk fiber
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 tablespoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon cardamom
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 cloves
1 star anise
4 apples, diced

Preheat the oven to 320° F (160° C).

In a small pot, warm up over low heat the canola oil and add cloves and star anise to infuse.

Mix all the remaining ingredients except the apples in a food processor. Remove the cloves and star anise, and add the canola oil. Fold in the apples and press the batter down into an approximately 7 inch (18 cm) greased cake tin. Bake for 50 minutes. Let the cake cool on a wire rack.

    what are linseed eggs?
    regular eggs fed linseed or the vegan-style “eggs” made from linseed meal and water? If it’s the latter, what are the ratios?

    • Hi Sophie,

      Thanks, for asking. I use regular organic eggs, but from hens fed linseeds and a otherwise natural diet (no concentrates).

      I havent heard about the vegan “eggs”, thanks for the tip! 🙂
