Gluten Free Apple Bake - Great Recipe for Fall!

It's starting to get crisp outside which means it's the perfect time to make something warm and delicious for your family to keep them warm inside and out!  This recipe is gluten-free but can be made full-gluten by substituting out the gluten-free flour for regular.

I had a few apples from a local orchard and was thinking what can I make... my fiance loves apple pie but I wanted to make something different, so I came up with an apple bake.  It uses the same crust recipe as my gluten-free pie crust and is altered to be more of an apple dish than crust/carb dish.  Bake it and put it in your favorite mug to enjoy along with a great cup of coffee and you will be sure to be back for more!

For the crust part: 

  • 1 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 Large egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp very cold water
  • Pre-heat oven to 350*
  • Combine the flour and salt in a medium bowl.  Cut in the butter with a fork until the mixture becomes crumbly.  
  • In a separate bowl, beat egg and apple cider vinegar
  • Add the egg & vinegar mixture
  • Use dough hook on your mixer and mix ingredients
  • Add the cold water and mix all together

For the apple part: 

  • 3 medium to large apples, pealed and sliced
  • 3 TBSP melted butter 
  • 4 TBSP Cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • Peal and cut up the apples and place into the bowl along with the dough
  • Slowly begin to mix apples and dough in mixer (slowwlllyyyyy)  
  • Take bowl and add in butter that was melted
  • Add in the cinnamon and sugar, mix all together
  • Bake in a glass 8x8 pan for about 40 mins
Ready to eat as soon as it is taken out!  Enjoy! :)
