Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Apple Cake



Gluten free apple cake recipe made with coconut flour



Apple Cake with Coconut Flour

As soon as I buy apples and start daydreaming about my favorite fall confections- imagining clear, cool evenings and Eva Cassidy's haunting rendition of Autumn Leaves- September turns sultry and humid, reeling me back into the closet to peel off my boyfriend jeans and fresh new flannel shirt. Faster than Gordon Ramsay can mock sashimi Yours Truly is grabbing faded summer shorts and my favorite BOSTON t-shirt to bake barefoot.

See what I do for you?


So go ahead, babycakes.

Enjoy this new apple cake recipe. 

Share a slice or two amongst yourselves

Don't worry about me here in my hot little apartment. 

Really. Go. 

Have some cake. You'll love it.

Apple kisses,

Gluten-Free Apple Crisp

Gluten-Free Apple Crisp with Oats - classic, delicious from Karina


Yes, I know. I've served you apple crisp before- without oats. And it's quite lovely. It is. Especially for celiac folks shunning oats (find my oat-free apple crisp recipe here). But. Now that truly gluten-free oats are easier to come by, we at Casa Allrich have had a major hankering for the classic oats and butter and brown sugar combo.

And so- a new recipe was born.

I just ate it for breakfast.


Gluten-Free Fried Zucchini Chips + Dip


Gluten-Free Goddess Fried Zucchini Chips with Vegan Dipping Sauce


To Dip Is to Love.


The Dog Days of Summer are barking hot. Gardens are exploding. Vegetables are shiny fresh and happy. From A to Z, produce is queen. 'Tis the season of abundance. You know where I'm going with this, right? Need I say more, Dearest Reader? Do I really have to wax poetic and effusive about the humble cucurbita pepo known as zucchini? Do you crave another verbal celebration of le fabuleux courgette?

Here's my advice. Try these amazing gluten-free fried zucchini chips.

Comfort food Italian style.


Gluten-Free Almond Zucchini Mini-Muffins



Temptation. A to Z.

Almond flour and zucchini mini-muffins sweetened only with pure maple syrup. That's right. No cane sugar. Almond flour and bourbon vanilla bring their subtle, natural sweetness to gluten-free muffin recipes, so why cloak it with a heavy dose of sugar? And adding a lip-smacking kiss of ginger wakes up the zucchini (which tends to fall asleep in baking recipes, due to utter lack of commitment and verve).

I've added quinoa flakes for extra protein, and brown rice flour to round out the whole grains. And a small bit of tapioca starch- to give these whole grain based muffins some lift. Now the only hitch is, don't eat all twenty-four at once, Darling.

Tell yourself you're only going to eat one.

Well, maybe two.

Don't think about three.

Or imagine four.

Because that fourth delectable bite of nary a muffin- really, it's only a tease of a muffin- might stir your desire for a fifth. And the next thing you know, half the mini-muffin pan is empty. And you are standing, wide-eyed and innocent, brushing baby sized crumbs off your chin, when your husband swings around the corner into the sunlit kitchen and inhales, declaring, Sweet Tapdancing Buddha, it smells good in here! What did you bake?

And thinking lickity-split fast you tell him, I made a dozen almond flour zucchini mini-muffins.

Want to try one?

Gluten-Free Peach Crisp Recipe

Gluten-Free Goddess Peach Crisp
 



Peachy Goodness.

Your plucky gluten-free goddess at large has been conjuring egg-free disasters- one after another- in her tiny blue-tiled cocina. And tossing said disasters (affectionately known as drek) into the trash bin left and right, developing quite an aim despite her gloomy disposition.

She shoots- she scores!

In fact, the greenbacks spent on the alternative flours, gluten-free casein-free mixes, tiny allergen-free chocolate chips and organic bananas could have bought said Gluten-Free Goddess a lovely bottle of Lavanila Summer. The big bottle, not the purse size. 

And by the way, don't believe what they tell you about subbing eggs with bananas in a chocolate recipe, Babycakes, unless you have a taste for tacky, gummy brownies that have a faint but distinct Eau de Baby Food top note.

But in every third act... there's a moment.

You know, that pregnant pause, where our bruised but glistening heroine turns- damp and tendrilled, emotionally raw, soy-free chocolate smears artfully adorning her noble apron- and tucks an errant wisp of hair behind her left ear as she squints into the radiating oven, inhales a whiff of cinnamon-laced peachy heaven and senses deep in her fragile loyal heart she's got a winner. 

Cue music.

Darling, this summery vegan treat is so luscious your gluten-eating wiener-chomping friends will scrape their plates shiny clean and beg for more. They will. Promise.

So you may as well make two. One for them.

And one for you.
