Gluten-free Raw Apple Cake

love Amish recipes.  Having said that, Amish and gluten-free are not usually used in the same sentence.  Raw Apple Cake has always been a family favorite, but I haven’t made it for quite a while.  My mother-in-law made an apple cake for me that was gluten-free, so I felt inspired to try this Amish recipe with a few modifications.  I used my favorite rice flour combo for the regular flour and replaced the whole wheat flour with oat flour.  I also added some xanthum gum since this always seems to help make things raise better.  If you’re gluten-free, give it a try.  We think it’s a keeper!


1 cup sugar

1 cup vegetable oil

3 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1.5 cups of rice flour combo

.5 cup of oat flour

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. soda

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. xanthum gum

5 cups of raw apples, diced (about 4 large apples)

.5 cups of nuts, chopped

.5 tsp. cinnamon

.25 cup sugar

1.  Blend first 4 ingredients together in mixing bowl.  Add the next 5 ingredients and stir well.

2.  Fold in the apples and nuts.

3.  Spread batter in greased 9″ x 13″ baking pan.

4.  Mix together cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over batter.

5.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Enjoy!! RawAppleCake2a
