This apple-studded, warmly-spiced bundt cake is a marvelous display of fall harvest, and is perfect for sharing with your people! 

I baked it and brought half of it to a girlfriend who had recently had a baby and gave the other half to my mom and her partner. The consensus? A magnificent fall treat for friends and family to share.

How to Make Apple Bundt Cake:

Preheat your oven to 315 degrees F. Lightly spray a bundt pan with cooking oil (I use avocado oil), then dust with gluten-free all-purpose flour. This ensures the cake will release from the bundt pan easily after it has baked and cooled.

Add the eggs, pure maple syrup, coconut sugar, and avocado oil to a stand mixer (or a mixing bowl). Beat on medium speed until combined.

In a separate bowl, stir together the gluten-free all-purpose flour, tapioca flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and sea salt until well-combined.

Add the chopped apple and stir until combined.

Add the dry ingredients (flour/apple mixture) to the wet ingredients and beat until combined.

Pour the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the cake tests clean when poked with a toothpick.

Remove cake from the oven and allow it to cool at least 45 minutes. Carefully run a butter knife between the cake and the bundt pan to help release it from the mold. Turn the cake upside-down onto a cake stand.

Use your favorite glaze or frosting to top the cake. I like using my Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting  recipe for a dairy-free, refined sugar-free option. I simply thin out the frosting with coconut milk to bring it to a glaze consistency.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Replace the tapioca flour with more gluten-free all-purpose flour or potato starch.
  • Substitute melted butter or ghee for the avocado oil
  • If desired, replace ¼ cup of the oil with applesauce or unfiltered apple cider for less fat.
  • If you use cane sugar in your baking, you can replace the coconut sugar with regular cane sugar or brown sugar
  • Replace the pure maple syrup with honey.
  • Glaze the cake with a drizzle of honey or pure maple syrup instead of using frosting.
  • Add chopped walnuts or pecans to the batter!

    I made the Apple Bundt cake for my dad. I substituted apple juice for the oil and added chopped pecans. Dad loved it, not too sweet, moist, and full of flavor!

      Hi Leigh! Yes, you can use a regular cake pan or mufin pan. I’d go with a 13″ x 9″ cake pan…you may need to somewhere around 35 to 50 minutes. Let me know if you try it!

    I made it with honey instead of maple syrup and everyone loved it. Tastes so good you don’t have to tell them it’s gluten free!
