Gluten-free Apple Cake

6 May

As I sit here in my office writing this post, I quickly shot a look around my computer screen and witness this cake being devoured by my colleagues, I know this is definitely one recipe I must share with you.


“The Apple of My Eye”

I was the last to leave the office on Friday evening and on my way out the door I noticed a dozen or so apples sitting on the bench looking rather sad.

Orange and Poppyseed Cake

There are many challenges in life. Entertaining guests for dinner is a challenge. Creating a menu for dinner guests is a challenge. Making a dessert that is delicious and good for you and doesn’t contain twenty five different and unusual ingredients is a huge challenge.

Excitedly I texted her for the recipe and anxiously awaited her reply. Friday morning came and I was still waiting for a response so it was trusty google to the rescue and that’s when I  came across this recipe from Luv’n Spoonfuls. Except for all the unusual ingredients than cannot be found in any supermarket or specialty food store in Geneva, it was exactly what I was looking for; a healthy dessert!
