Cape Cod Apple Cake with Cranberries (Gluten-Free)

Cape Cod Apple Cake with Cranberries (Gluten-Free)

Gluten free apple cake with cranberries

Candy and Tart.

No philosophy at the moment. Mud off your cake pan, Babycakes.

This can be a moist and tender apple cake laced with a touch of cinnamon and studded with recent tart berries. After seven twelve – er, 19! – years of baking varied gluten-free incarnations of my tried and true household apple cake recipe, this may very well be our favourite. Perhaps it is the sweet-tart combo. The subtlety of flavors.

In a meals tradition obsessive about kicking up recipes with extra for the sake of extra (white chocolate peanut butter bacon swirled maple donut ice cream drizzled in dulche de leche coconut marshmallow syrup and dusted with sugared Meyer lemon zest and shaved cacao, anybody?) the clear and basic taste distinction of apples and cranberries is someway new once more. Even, refreshing.

I do not want dessert to style like sweet.

I like my cake to style like cake.

Recipe Notes and Adjustments:

For liquids – I counsel utilizing 1/2 cup milk or non-dairy milk to begin; and add a bit extra, if wanted, as you combine the batter. The batter should not be runny or skinny.

This recipe is for a deep 9-inch cake pan. Utilizing a smaller pan could also be problematic (if there may be an excessive amount of batter in your specific pan, use rather less batter).

In case you use frozen berries, thaw and pat them dry. Chilled fruit creates a chilly batter that should bake longer. Chilly elements will stall the baking.

Room temperature elements and heat liquids work greatest in gluten-free baking.

Tip from reader Nancy B: Haven’t got a deep sufficient cake pan? Make this recipe as jumbo muffins– she tells us they had been moist and scrumptious.
