Bake this delicious paleo apple pear cake this holiday season.
Last week, my kind MIL came over with a large bag of Fuji apples from the orchard. Even though we never made it to the farm, we have been been fortunate with friends and family sharing delicious apples with us. I got inspired to create a paleo apple pear cake and oh my goodness it’s absolutely delicious!
If you’re looking for an alternative to the traditional Thanksgiving pumpkin or apple pie, might I suggest this recipe? It has become my favorite paleo recipe on the blog to date. One of the great things about paleo recipes is that it doesn’t use conventional flour. Almond flour is the base for this recipe.
My kids don’t always love the paleo recipes I make but they devoured this one. I’ve made it three times this week and it continues to disappear quickly. Folks, it really is that good. It’s crispy on the outside and oh so soft in the middle. Almond flour tends to sometimes have a dry consistency but this recipe is moist and chock full or Autumn in a cake.
I first made this recipe with just apples and it was pretty darn delicious. I had some Bartlett pears on hand and so I added them to the second version. I love both but I have to say the combo of the fruits lends itself to a most delectable flavor.
Paleo Apple Pear Cake
- 2 cups diced apples and pears (I diced one small Barlett pear and 1 medium Fuji)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 1/4 cup almond flour
- 2 tbsp tapioca Flour
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
The first thing you want to do is add the diced fruit into a bowl. Mix in the 1/4 cup coconut sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon and make sure all the fruit is covered evenly. Under medium heat, melt your 1 tbsp coconut oil on the pan. Add the diced fruit mixture and sauté for about 3-4 min. You don’t want to cook it longer or your fruit will turn to mush.
In another bowl, stir all the dry ingredients for the cake batter together. Add in the egg, vanilla and coconut oil and mix. Fold in the fruit mixture. Pour the batter into a sprayed pie dish.
Bake in the oven at 350 for 15-20 minutes. If you love a more crispy outer layer, keep it the oven for 20 minutes. Just keep an eye on the cake as each oven is different. Wait till the cake is completely cool before slicing. That part is the hardest because you’ll want to dig in!
