A few years ago, my daughter and I were going pretty regularly to the Old Beach Farmer’s Market, which is a market at the beach here in VB that happens every Saturday morning during the summer, and once a month during the other months. A local baker sells slices of some of her cakes, and Bre bought a slice of apple Bundt cake from her. Of course I couldn’t buy any because it wasn’t gluten free, but it looked SO GOOD!!!! I came home and immediately went to work on a gluten free version.

How to Make Apple Cake

This gluten free apple Bundt cake is so simple to make. The apples tend to almost melt into the cake and create pockets of gooey, almost caramel-like yumminess!

  • Combine the eggs, oil, and sugar in a large bowl and beat until well combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet and blend well.
  • Add the diced apples and beat for just about 10 seconds to distribute apples throughout. The batter will be quite thick.
  • Scoop into prepared Bundt pan.
  • Bake at 325 degrees F for one hour ten minutes to one hour twenty minutes, or until skewer inserted close to the center comes out clean.
  • Cool in pan for 15 minutes before inverting onto serving plate to finish cooling.

Apple Bundt Cake FAQs

What Type of Apples are Best for this Cake?

I personally prefer a softer apple to a firm apple in this cake. Something like a Rome, Golden Delicious, or Macintosh works very well.

Do I Have to Grease and Flour the Pan or Can I Just Use Pan Spray?

I’d strongly suggest to grease AND flour the Bundt pan to prevent sticking. You can spray the entire pan with nonstick spray and then take a pastry brush and brush that into all corners and swirls, etc. Follow with a dusting of gluten free flour, tapping out the excess.

Does This Cake Require Refrigeration?

No, as long as it’s consumed within 48 hours. After that, I’d suggest refrigerating it or even freezing it in individually wrapped slices.
