German Apple Cake Recipe
Gluten-Free Apple Cake, deliciously moist and bursting with apple flavour
This apple cake recipe is easy to make in only 3 steps! It is a lovely cake that you can enjoy as a delicious Gluten-Free Dessert, warmed and topped with cinnamon powder. Because it is naturally light on flour, it converted amazingly well using my gluten-free flour blend and a little almond flour for flavor and structure. I think you will LOVE it. And yes, it smells so good when it’s baking in the oven.
Many people know this cake in Germany as “Versunkener Apfelkuchen” which means Sunken Cake. Fresh apples are cut in quarters, thinly sliced almost all the way, and then placed on top of the cake. This gives the apples a fanned look. For a little something extra, I brush the still-warm cake with maple syrup and sprinkle with cinnamon powder.

I am using coconut syrup for this Chocolate Donut recipe as it is easily available here in Thailand. It might not be easy to find where you are. Use what you have. Instead, you can use maple syrup, agave, or another sweetener.
This Chocolate Donut recipe calls for apples. I have found some beautiful fuji apples, but you can swap them with similar sweet, crunchy apples instead.
