How to Make Apple Cake Gluten-free


  1. Take one apple and peel it. Slice the apple in very thin slices.
    Place the apple slices in a bow and squeeze the lemon juice on top. Toss with your hands the apple slice so that the lemon juice will cover evenly all slices. Set it apart.
    In the kitchen mixer add the butt cut in small cubes (the butter should be soft, room temperature) and sugar. Let the mixer work for 2 minutes at low sped in order to create a nice cream.
    While the mixer is working divide the egg yolks from the whites.
  2. Place the white a medium bowl , add pinch of light salt and with an electric whisk beat the eggs white until stiff and dry.
    Go back to the mixer; The butter and sugar should be nice and creamy. Add the egg yolks, the yogurt and vanilla extract. Let it work for one minute.
    Add the baking powder to the rice flour and slowly add the dry mix with mixer, one teaspoon at the time.
    You will obtain a thick and sooth dough.
    Slowly add the stiff egg white to the mix with a spatula or a spoon not with the mix or you lose the fluffy effect. The thick dough will transform into a fluffy cream.
  3. Add the apple slices and gently mix.
    Transfer the mix in a spring form cake pan. If the is a in silicon you do not need to grease it. If it is standard metal you will need to grease it with baking spray or butter.
    Final decoration; slice the remaining apple in a thin slices, leave the peel(it's more beautiful) and decorate the surface or the cake with the apple slices.
    Bake the apple cake in pre-heated oven at 400F for 45 minutes. Let it cool down for 5 minutes and enjoy!!
