Gluten-free Apple Cake with Coconut Flour

I’ve been obsessed with perfecting this apple cake recipe this month in order to satisfy my 80-year old mother’s insatiable sweet tooth. I always suggest to my clients to do some baking while they are following any type of dietary restrictions because having baked goods can go a long way toward not feeling deprived.

While there are other gluten-free cake recipes may call for almond flour, my mother is sensitive to almonds so I turned to coconut flour instead. I recommend using all organic ingredients to maximize the healthiness factor, and I’m finally satisfied with this recipe and ready to share this easy-to-make, scrumptious, gluten-free cake.

I drizzled melted chocolate on this version of apple cake. Yum!
