This healthy apple bundt cake is a delicious dessert recipe for fall. Everyone will love this gluten-free, dairy-free cake with the best flavors of autumn.
My family never makes it through the early fall without an apple picking excursion. It’s always such a fun day, and we love sampling a variety of different apples. This year, we came home with some macintosh, gala, and honey crisp apples, plus a few other varieties whose names I can’t remember. It’s always a challenge to figure out which is which when we get home.
Our annual apple picking trip wouldn’t be complete without a delicious dessert recipe. I love bundt cakes, so I put together this gluten free apple spice bundt cake with a mix of the different apples from our local orchard.
The chunks of apple in this cake, along with the cinnamon flavor, make it a great recipe for fall. The sweet maple glaze is such a treat, but you can leave it out if you want a lower sugar version. Either way, this is a delicious fall dessert that everyone will love.

In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Then add the maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Stir together, and add the dry ingredients to the large bowl. Stir in the apples.
Transfer the batter to the pan and bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean.
Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove it from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
To make the glaze, stir together the coconut milk and maple syrup in a small pot. Bring to a gentle simmer. In a small bowl, stir together the arrowroot powder and vanilla extract.
