Apple Almond Cake (Paleo, Gluten-Free)

This simple apple almond cake is made with just a few simple ingredients. But don’t let its simplicity fool you – it’s delicious and has a very delicate apple and almond flavor. It is paleo and gluten-free too!

I love that it’s moist and very light, not too sweet. It’s perfect for an afternoon coffee or tea. The combination of apples and almonds is also fantastic! I usually love to mix apples, walnuts & cinnamon when I bake fall cupcakes or cakes. But this time I wanted to try something different, and it turned out amazing! This cake will also go wonderfully with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

How To Make Apple Almond Cake

What you need

3 cups almond meal

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

6 eggs

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp almond extract

2 cups peeled and chopped apples (Granny Smith)

1/2 cup slivered almonds

1/4 cup apricot preserve

Instructions

Stir together 3 cups almond flour, 1 tsp baking powder and ¼ tsp salt in a medium bowl.

In a large bowl, use a handheld electric mixer to beat together 1 1/2 cup coconut sugar and 1/2 cup melted coconut oil until well combined. Mix in 6 eggs (1 at a time), beating well after each one then beat in 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp almond extract.

Add almond flour mixture and continue to mix on low speed until blended. Fold in chopped apples and pour cake batter into a greased 9″ (8″ will work as well) springform. Top with slivered almonds.

Warm apricot preserves in a small pan over medium heat until it breaks down. Using a cooking brush, brush the top of the cake with the warm apricot preserve.

    The ingredients say 1/2 tsp of salt, but you only add 1/4 tsp salt, also, what size pan? I’m in the middle of making it now and only using 1/4 tsp salt and an 8 in springform pan. I will let you know how it came out.

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      I used a 9″ springform but you can use an 8″ as well, it will just look taller.
      With 1/2 tsp salt it should turn out great as well.
      Hope you enjoy it!!

        Really good recipe. Easy to make and worked well and was happy with all the ingredients.
        But I wish American sites would add the quantities in metric as well as cups so those of us who live in Europe dont have to look up every single ingredient in metric measurements.

        • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

          So glad to hear that it worked well, Annie!
          Thanks for the feedback for the metric measurements.
          I am working on something that will hopefully make this easier for you. 🙂
