I can't remember where I got the recipe for this; it may have been on this site; but it is one of the best things I have tried.

Finely dice 4 cups apple and mix in a big bowl with 2 cups sugar. Mix 2 cups Featherlight, 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum, 1 1/2 tsp. soda, 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. salt, and stir in. In a separate bowl, mix 2 lightly beaten eggs with 2/3 cup canola oil and 2 tsp. vanilla. (I used 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. vanilla-butter-nut flavoring.) Stir this into apple mixture. Stir in 2/3 cup coconut and 1 cup nuts. Spread into greased 13 x 9 pan and bake at 350 for 50 minutes. Let cool while you mix up a powdered sugar glaze. Spread the glaze over the warm cake. Serve warm or cool.

What is Featherlight?


It's the mix that is in so many recipes (from B Hagman?) It's in this proportion: 1 cup white rice flour, 1 cup tapioca flour, 1 cup cornstarch, and 1 tablespoon potato flour (not potato starch). Mix it up in bulk and keep it in a jar. This apple cake recipe, a really good chocolate cake recipe, a really good banana nut bread recipe, and lots of other recipes all use it.

mmm, I need to try that cake, thanks for posting!
I sub featherlite in baking for a sorghum mix b/c its healthier and I am not crazy about rice flour, it works great:

Carol's flour blend
1 1/2 cups sorghum
1 1/2 cups potato starch or cornstarch
1 cup tapioca flour

I still use featherlite in tortillas, pie crust and "Oreos"

Sounds like this recipe:
http://www.eatingglu...erts/#applecake

4 c. chopped apples (4 medium)
2 c. sugar
1 c. featherlight mix
c. gluten-free mix
tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
c. oil
2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.

Stir together apples and sugar. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix well. In separate bowl, beat eggs, oil, and vanilla. Add to apple mixture, blending thoroughly. Stir in pecans, if desired.

Pour into a greased cake pan. Bake 50 - 55 minutes for a 9x13 pan or 25 30 minutes for a 13x18 pan.

Top pieces of cake with warm caramel sauce and serve.


I actually made this a few weeks ago for a family get together, and other than it not staying up, it was DELICIOUS!
My suggestion for the recipe is to either grate the apples or chop REALLY finely. And be sure and chop the nuts finely as well. I noticed, b/c I made half w/ nuts and half w/out, that the cake w/ the nuts held up better than the non-nutty version. Just my suggestions. A very good, and good smelling recipe!

Could you use a gluten free all-purpose baking mix in place of the featherlight?
