Hi! This is Carie from Sweet And Savory Spence.
Thank you so much to Caroline for allowing me to guest post on Do It All Working Mom. I am honored and excited! As a working mom myself, I am an admirer and follower of Caroline’s blog.
I am new to the gluten free world and am slowly creating a variety of gluten free recipes. So with apple picking season arriving quickly I wanted to create a gluten free apple cake for my daughter and I. We usually pick so many apples that they take over our entire kitchen. The plus side is that none of them ever go to waste.
Even if you aren’t on a gluten free diet, I promise you are going to love this cake. The best part is you wouldn’t even be able to tell that it is gluten free. It has all the flavor and texture of the cake you are used to, but every one can enjoy it.
Gluten Free Apple Spice Cake with Vanilla-Honey Cream Cheese Frosting
- 1 Cup Millet Flour
- 1 Cup Oat Flour
- 1/2 Cup Sweet Sorghum Flour
- 2 Tsp Baking Powder
- 1 Tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 Tsp Cardamom
- 1/2 Tsp Salt
- 4 Eggs
- 1 Cup Coconut Oil, liquid
- 3/4 Cup Honey
- 2 Tbsp Almond Butter
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2-3 Apples, peeled, cored & diced
- 8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
- 1/4 Cup Honey
- 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 9″ x 13″ pan.
In a large bowl combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom and salt. Whisk them together.
In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, coconut oil, honey, almond butter and vanilla extract. Stir until just combined.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Add in the apples and give a couple of stirs. Be careful not to over mix your batter.
Pour batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Allow the cake to cool.
Using a mixer with the whisk attachment, beat the softened cream cheese until it is smooth. Whisk in the honey and vanilla.
Using an offset spatula, spread the frosting over the top of the cake.
Cut into squares and serve.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
Thank you again to Caroline! xo

Hi all! What a wonderful looking recipe! I might have to modify it a bit, as we have nut allergies in our house. Any suggestions on substitutions for the almond butter?
You can leave it out all together and just up the honey to 1 cup. Hope that helps! 🙂
This looks so good Carrie! Apple cake is one of my favorite fall desserts. 🙂
