My favourite dessert has always been Dutch Apple Pie, there is nothing like it! The mix of apples and raisins with brown sugar and cinnamon is just so delicious. And with a crumbly top and bottom it can not be replicated in a truly grain free and sugar free way.
Nevertheless, I decided to make a Tea cake instead. Completely inspired by the memories of my childhood indulgences of Apple Pie.
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup apple sauce
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 3 tbsp coconut nectar/honey/maple syrup
- 1/2 tbsp vanilla powder
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup of sultanas
- 1 apple cut up
Mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased round 15 cm springvorm. Bake at 175C for approximately 40-45 minutes. Make sure the cake is baked enough. When I took it out it was still quite moist on the inside. You can either reduce the amount of apple sauce or let it dry out in the oven a wee bit longer. Also, if using store bought apple sauce, adding extra sweetener is totally unnecessary.
Check with a skewer if the cake is done.
This is a typical Dutch Apple Pie
