Bouncy Apple Cake W/ Lemon Drizzle

Bouncy Apple Cake W/ Lemon Drizzle

SERVES: 12-14







  • 2 cups gluten-free flour
  • ½ tsp bicarb soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup apple sauce
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil (plus extra for greasing)
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean extract
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 red apples (skin peeled off & diced)


  • ¼ cup icing sugar
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (approximately)

Optional: rose & lavender petals for decorating




  1. Preheat the oven to 175ºC, line the base of a cake tin (we use a springform cake tin) with baking paper and grease the side with coconut oil
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix together
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients (except diced apple) and whisk together well
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry bowl and fold together well until no dry pockets of flour remain
  5. Gently fold the diced apple into the batter
  6. Pour the batter into your cake tin and bake in the oven for 55 - 60 minutes. Before removing it from the oven, stick a skewer or knife into the cake and check it comes out clean to confirm it is cooked all the way through
  7. Remove the cake from the tin and allow it to cool on a wire rack
  8. Whisk the lemon drizzle ingredients together and once your cake has cooled (or almost cooled) drizzle it on top of the cake
  9. Option to sprinkle some rose and lavender petals on top for a pop of colour and fragrance. Placing some thin slices of lemon also looks really sweet on top of this cake
  10. Slice in to the cake and enjoy!
