I made Oh My Pie’s delicious cauliflower bread this morning and had some cauliflower left. Since I was also planning to bake a gluten and lactose free apple crumble cake (kid keeps asking for crumble while I’m craving cake…), I thought I’d combine the two. The result is super delicious eaten while warm (eh I simply couldn’t wait till it cooled down to start😄), with some (lactose free) cream.
Ingredients for the cake
100g sugar (I used xylitol)
200g boiled, finely grated and squeezed (in a towel) cauliflower
50g rice flour
50g buckwheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cox or other cooking apples, cored and sliced thinly
Ingredients for the crumble
100g rice flour
25g coconut sugar
50g lactose free butter
1 tsp cinnamon
For the cake:
Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
Beat the eggs with the sugar for 5 minutes until properly fluffy.
Add the cauliflower and mix gently until combined.
Add the rest of the ingredients except the apples and mix gently until combined.
Pour into a 20cm round baking tin (lined and oiled). Add the slices of apple on top of the cake.
For the crumble:
Mix all the ingredients with your fingertips until they are crumbly (duh). Scatter the mix gently all over the cake mix.
Put the crumble cake into the oven for 35 minutes.
Leave to stand for 5 minutes and then remove the side and let cool or eat directly with some cream. Enjoy!
