We’ve had some of the BEST organic apples lately! This reminded me that Terry had submitted a yummy looking apple nut cake recipe which I am going to try. We have lots of reasons to make a “good food” cake as 16 of our 20 grandchildren live near and I like to bake desserts that use real food if I’m going to make a treat for their birthday or other occasion. Let me know if you decide to try Terry’s recipe too!

Apple Nut Cake

Submitted by Terry Power


3 cups white Khorason flour (or other ancient grain flour)

1 tsp baking soda (aluminum free)

1 tsp cinnamon

2 1/2 cups Trehalose sugar (be sure your source is Non-GMO or request a good option at GRMVetted.org)

1 1/2 cups organic butter or organic melted coconut oil

2 tsp pure vanilla

3 organic free-range eggs

3 cups, well diced, organic apples (of your choice)

1 cup chopped pecans

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)


Butter and flour a tube pan. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Sift together flour, baking soda and cinnamon. In a large bowl, mix sugar, oil and vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well. Fold in the dry ingredients, apples, pecans and coconut.

Pour into prepared pan and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 20 minutes then turn cake out onto a rack. Let it cool completely.


Glaze Ingredients

1 stick organic salted butter

1 1/2 cups Trehalose

1 T organic black-strap molasses

1/4 c organic raw milk or almond milk

Glaze Directions

In a medium sauce pan, combine all ingredients. Bring to a low boil over medium heat–turn down to keep a low boil for 2 1/2 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over cake and allow it to set. The cake becomes more moist the longer it sets.
