Gluten Free Apple Custard Cake

Gluten Free Apple Custard Cake

This is the time of year when apples are abundant and so we went looking for a new gluten free apple recipe and where did we start Pinterest. 

On my Gluten Free Board I found a pin for a German Apple Pancake by Civilized Caveman. 

 We did not want to make individual servings so we prepared ours in a large pie plate.  The German Apple Pancake had a quiche taste that our granddaughters did not like.  Paul and I enjoyed the German Apple Pancake and wanted to adapt the recipe to our granddaughters tastes.  We have called our recipe Gluten Free Apple Custard Cake, we had it for breakfast with turkey bacon and I am ashamed to say maple syrup and ice cream.

We started by peeling and chopping 4 large apples.  Two that we picked at Farmer's Pantry and two from our own tree.

We sauteed the apples in , 2 tbsp melted coconut oil, 2 tbsp raw organic honey, 2 tsp cinnamon, lemon juice and 1 tsp nutmeg until the apples were soft.

This mixture was then poured into a large greased pie plate and set aside.

Emily could not figure out how we were going to get lemon juice out of the lemon using the orange thing (I have no idea what to call it).  She watched as Grandpa cut a small piece off the end of the lemon and then screwed the orange piece in.

And when she squeezed the lemon she got fresh lemon juice.

We then mixed the wet ingredients in separate bowls.  Mixing them together at the last to make our  batter.

We then poured the batter over the apples and put it in the oven for 40 minutes.


This resulted in a Breakfast Cake that they liked.
