The best apple spice cakes.

The recipe is inspired by one from Gluten free cupcakes by Elana Amsterdam. I have modified quite a bit though.

1 cup coconut flour
2 tbsp potato starch (or some other starch like tapioca, arrowroot or corn)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 cup apple sauce
egg replacer for 4 eggs (or 4 eggs :))
4 tsp ground flax seed or chia seeds
0.5 cup apple juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup agave syrup
1/2 cup honey (to make vegan, substitute with agave or other sweetener)
1 apple cut in small pieces
1/2 cup raisins

Mix dry ingredients together and wet ingredients together in separate bowls. Combine and last stir in apples and raisins. Bake in 350 F for 25 minutes or until they seem ready.

Let cool and eat them as they are or sprinkle with powdered sugar or top with coconut cinnamon frosting.

  1. I replaced the apple sauce with roasted and pureed winter squash - very good.
