Gluten-Free Applesauce Cake


Here’s a delicious and moist applesauce cake recipe. This cake is very easy to make, it’s also dairy-free and gluten-free. It’s very soft and light – it’s almost like a souffle cake.

I made it with coconut flour and some desiccated coconut. You can use just coconut flour, but I think that the texture is much better when I add desiccated coconut.

You can also use any sweetener of your choice, but I decided to sweeten mine with some jam. I think it works perfectly for this recipe. However, you can use honey, sugar, stevia or anything else.

The final touch is a little bit of cashew butter. This is optional – you can use any nut butter of your choice or just skip that step.

If you like coconut and apples, I’m sure that you’ll fall in love with this cake. It’s one of my favorite desserts.

Gluten-Free Applesauce Cake


  • 4 eggs
  • ¾ cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons jam
  • 1 tablespoon cashew butter
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • A pinch of baking soda
  • Cinnamon to taste


Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).

Separate the egg whites form the egg yolks.

Whisk the egg yolks, then add the applesauce, jam, cinnamon, and cashew butter. Mix everything thoroughly.

Add coconut flour and a pinch of baking soda. After you mix everything together, add the desiccated coconut and mix once again until everything is well incorporated.

Whisk the egg whites with a hand mixer, then add a little bit of the egg white foam to the other mixture and fold together. Then, add this mixture to the rest of the egg whites and fold everything carefully using a wooden or silicone spatula.

Bake for about 18 minutes or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

Let the cake cool down completely before cutting.

Optionally, decorate with coconut whipped cream and pecans.
