Most of you know that my all time favourite flavour is chocolate! What’s not to love? Plus chocolate is made from a cocoa bean and a bean is a vegetable which makes it good for you!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

One the other hand, my second favourite flavour would be cinnamon! Cinnamon has some wonderful health benefits such as lowering LDL cholesterol (which is your bad cholesterol), may help in lowering blood sugar, as well as many other benefits.

Other than the health benefits of cinnamon, it just tastes great!! Add cloves, ginger and nutmeg and you have a mouthful of yummy goodness!

This cake is my first that has worked out beautifully without eggs, which is fantastic for those who need to lower their consumption or not be able to have eggs at all. If you are fine with eggs then you can use them instead.

Either way, be ready for a delicious mixture of cinnamon, spice and apples!

  1. I’m new to gluten free baking. Can I use all brown rice flour or another flour in place of your gluten flour mix?

    Also, my son is allergic to cashews, in recipes that call for cashews such as your cashew icing what can I use in place of cashews?
    He is fine with walnuts and almonds.
