I woke up very early this morning and decided to bake a cake. But not just any cake… a Paleo, Grain-free, Gluten-free, Clean… Cinnamon Apple Cake.
It’s a very Fall inspired, cinnamon-filled fluffy cake that is brimming with apples.
I made it using a combination of almond flour, coconut flour and tapioca flour, and of course, a healthy amount of both cinnamon and apples. It’s delicious, and it came at just the right time!
When I say it came at the right time, I mean it!
I just got back from a trip to Europe two days ago. This is why I only posted once last week.
I was gone for two weeks and tried to make enough recipes in advance so that I could post twice a week while I was gone, but I was not lucking out in the recipe department.
For me, my best recipes happen at random. For example when I wake up early and decide to bake a cake. 🙂
However, when I have a time constraint and must make 6 recipes in one week… I tend to not be so lucky.
I had quite a few recipe flops and so I decided that it would be OK for me to just post once my last week of vacation.
That being said, I was SO excited to get back home and start recipe testing and posting recipes again, BUUUT now Hurricane Irma is heading our way. ( I live in South Florida ).
However, I didn’t know about this when I woke up at 5 am this morning ( because of jet lag). I hadn’t checked the news yet, so I merrily baked this Cinnamon Apple Cake, totally unaware that a category 5 hurricane was potentially heading my way.
This involved mixing together almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in one bowl.
And maple syrup, honey, eggs, olive oil, and apple sauce in another bowl.
I combined the bowls together, mixed and then folded in diced apples.
Then I poured the batter into a round baking tin, and let the house fill with amazing apple cinnamon smells!
I enjoyed this AMAZING Apple Cinnamon Cake with a nice cup of coffee. But then I read the news and so I ended up spending the rest of my day running around town buying water and nonperishable goods, and gas.
I’m not sure yet if I’m going to be evacuating or whatnot, BUUUUT this means that I won’t be able to make as many recipes as I wanted to or to catch up on posting them. Sorry about that!
I will be able to write some travel posts about my recent trip to Belgium, the Netherlands and Sweden, so at least I have some posts in the pipeline.
I’ll keep everyone posted, and in the meantime, make this Cinnamon Apple Cake. It’s rustic, full of the best Fall flavors ( cinnamon and apple), and it’s so darn fluffy!
It’s just soooo good!
