Gluten Free Apple Loaf Cake

Took the prize for best gluten-free cake I’ve made so far.

Adapted from this recipe.

gluten-free lemon cake


  • 125g butter or margarine
  • 75g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 125g gluten-free plain white flour (Doves Farm)
  • 1 heaped teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
  • 2 small-sized apples
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Lemon Icing

  • 100g Icing Sugar
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

Mix together the butter, sugar and eggs until creamy.
Add the flour and baking powder.
Peel and chop up the apples into small chunks and add to the mixture along with the lemon juice.
Fill the mixture into your baking tin – I used a Large Silicon Loaf Tin as it’s easier to get the cake out as gluten-free cakes can be more crumbly.
Bake for 45-60 minutes at 180C

Leave to cool.

For the icing just mix the Icing sugar with the Lemon Juice and pour on top of the cake, then grate the rind of the lemon on top.
