apple tea cake - gluten free
This is not a pretty cake, but it is very moist and delicious. I used my thermomix to mix this cake, but you could use a food processor.
GLUTEN FREE APPLE TEA CAKE
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
190g gluten free flour [110g rice, 50g cornflour, 30g tapioca]
2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder [I make my own from baking soda and cream of tartar]
100g raw sugar
4 medium apples, cored and cut into 8 pieces
cinnamon & caster sugar
Preheat oven to moderate and grease & line a round cake tin.
Place apple [skin & all] in thermomix or food processor and chop into small pieces. Add some cinnamon & caster sugar to taste.
Melt butter in thermomix [or microwave] for 2 mins 90C [speed 1].
Add milk, vanilla and egg and process until well-combined [speed 7].
Add flour, baking powder, and sugar. Mix for 10-20 seconds [speed 5-7].
Tip half the batter into a tin and sprinkle the apple mixture across the cake. Pour the remaining batter over the top. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Dust with extra cinnamon sugar just prior to serving. Serve with a dollop of cream.
