Gluten Free Applesauce Coffee Cake

gluten free apple coffee cake

This is one of those recipes that makes me wonder if it is more breakfast, snack, or dessert. I know that is a tough problem to have isn’t it?!

Really I think it works for all three. I kept telling my family it was dessert, but they kept asking if they could eat it for breakfast. And yes I decided to be a yes mom and they ate it for breakfast one day. It has apples in it so it is healthy, right?!

This is the latest cake in my Martha Stewart Cakes the gluten free way series. I actually made this cake about a month ago, before my daughter and I went dairy free. So, this recipe has dairy in it and so will several of the cakes I share this month. Since the only dairy in this recipe is butter though, I am guessing you could easily use an alternative butter.

This gluten free cake was delicious! It worked perfectly gluten free. My husband loved this. He likes moist cakes and loves it when they have fruit in them, so this cake is one I will be making again and again.

The only thing I changed about this besides the gluten free part was the pan I made it in. It called for a tube pan and I thought it would work just as well, if not better in a 9×13 pan. And it worked just fine.

I guess I did change one more thing. The recipe called for fresh nutmeg. I did not have any and my husband does not like nutmeg, so I just left it out. I think you could easily add a little ground nutmeg to this though and it would be good.

I had also planned to use some sorghum flour in this recipe, but I was out and went with brown rice flour instead. I think I will try this with sorghum flour though sometime, because I think it would work with part or all sorghum in place of the brown rice flour.
