Looking for a great Gluten-Free Spiced Apple Cake recipe? You will love this dense, moist cake! We always celebrate the first day of Fall with a slice of this delicious homemade dessert!
Gluten-Free Spiced Apple Cake is one of my all-time favorite cakes for autumn. It is bursting with fresh, crisp apples, spices and walnuts. This versatile homemade cake is also a great menu item for a Sunday brunch or take to a fall potluck. It also is great for an afternoon gluten-free snack!
The first time I had this delicious cake was years ago, when our neighbor from Alaska made it. Her husband helped us chop down a tree and she shared this cake for a quick snack afterwards. She had been making this cake for decades. It was an instant hit and we are very thankful she shared the recipe with us. Her recipe has since become a family favorite and I am so glad I converted it to a gluten free cake. I look forward to making it every fall and winter.
We recently had friends over for dinner. The menu included: Salisbury steak, mashed potatoes with gravy and stuffed acorn squash. Gluten-Free Spiced Apple Cake was the perfect dessert to a delicious fall meal.

You know how some cakes just do not need frosting? Gluten-Free Spiced Apple Cake is one of them! I have considered serving it with a dollop of whipped cream but it is so delicious plain.
