Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Apple Sauce Cake! Gluten Free

This cake came out so moist and delicious. I had made homemade applesauce the day before and used it in this cake and let me tell you, it’s worth the little effort to make your own sauce. It was out of this world delicious.
Here is the picture I posted on FB yesterday. Everything looks so wonderful and pretty doesn’t it?
Stay tuned till after the recipe for the behind the scenes photo that should make you chuckle.
2 eggs
2 cups unsweetened applesauce, preferably home-made
½ cup honey
1/3 cup coconut oil
2 cups brown rice flour (replace with regular flour if you aren’t GF)
1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
½ teaspoon salt
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a large bundt pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place your eggs, applesauce, honey and coconut oil in a blender and puree. Whisk flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt in a large bowl. Pour your wet ingredients into your dry and stir until combined.  Plop it into the prepared pan, smooth it out and transfer to the oven. Bake until golden brown and the cake springs back when lightly touched, 50 to 55 minutes.
  3. Let cool in pan 10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack.
Okay so I happen to have been out of non-stick cooking spray so I improvised and did a oil and flour thingy. You know like back in the olden days? Yeah, now I know why they invented non stick cooking spray. *sigh*
Here’s what happened as I tried to turn it out onto the cooling rack. IMG_4577
Ain’t it purty?
I took a piece of the intact chunk and got the picture at the top of this post. But I thought you’d like to see that things don’t always turn out for me either.
 But regardless of what it looked like, it tasted DELICIOUS!
I hope you give it a try. Let me know if you do and how you liked it.
