Substituting regular flour with gluten-free flour and oak milk instead of regular, this recipe was made to be gluten-free and vegan-friendly so that everyone can enjoy its scrumptious taste. Whether you have a gluten intolerance or not, and even if you aren’t vegan, I can guarantee you will still love it – that’s how yummy it is!

This gingerbread apple cake is the perfect example of a hearty, rustic, and 100% shareable recipe. You will want to make this particularly during winter time when gingerbread-flavored treats are a must. Indulge in its subtly spiced taste and moist texture during the colder months to get the full “gingerbread cake” experience.

Not to mention that the healthier ingredients in this cake compared to the other cakes out there make it a more viable choice for those on a diet. You won’t even feel guilty eating it! Knowing that it’s gluten-free will make it all the more special for those who can’t eat gluten (and there are plenty of other gluten-free recipes you can try, too)!

PS, I am loving this hand stamped vintage silverware that I got for a gift recently.

The grated apples, cinnamon, and other benefit-packed ingredients produce this incredible winter-essential taste while also helping to regulate blood sugar, and improve digestion. I can already hear all of you with gluten intolerances praising me for this recipe!
