This is a delicious light and fluffy gluten free apple cinnamon custard cake that is like no other. The recipe is a bit fiddly but it is worth it as it is so good. The original recipe is from Curtis Stone but I changed to to make it gluten free and took out the alcohol. You're welcome hahahaha.

Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Custard Cake

3 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored
Juice and zest from 1 orange
1 1/4 cups gluten free plain flour, plus 2 tablespoons extra
1 cup caster sugar, plus 1 tablespoon extra
2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup full cream lactose free milk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon icing sugar, sifted

1. Position a rack in the centre of the oven and preheat to 180C or 160C fan-forced. Line and grease a 23cm springform tin.

2. Cut the apples into 8 wedges, then cut into 1/2 cm thick slices then in a medium bowl, toss the apples with juice from the orange and set aside.

3. In another medium bowl, whisk together the 1 1/4 cups of plain gluten free flour, 1 cup of caster sugar, gluten free baking powder, salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon.

4. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, milk, whole eggs, orange zest and vanilla to blend. Whisk dry ingredients into the wet ingredients to form a smooth batter. Be careful not to over-mix. This is the secret to getting this cake light and oh so fluffy!

5. Transfer 1 cup of the batter to a small bowl and mix in the remaining 2 tablespoons flour then set aside.

6. Whisk egg yolks into remaining batter in the large bowl just to blend then stir in the apples. Transfer the apple batter to the springform tin spreading the batter into an even layer and pressing the apples to submerge them. Pour the reserved batter evenly over the apple batter.

7. In a small bowl whisk the remaining caster sugar and cinnamon to blend then sprinkle it evenly over the batter.

8. Bake for 50-60 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean and the top is golden brown. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and cool for 15 mins. Dust with icing sugar and serve with a few scoops of lactose free ice cream.

The original recipe is from the Coles Magazine which you can find here.
