Thanksgiving Desserts That Are Not Pie: Apple Almond Cake

David Liebovitz wrote about this cake: 

"It’s a rich almond-scented cake with loads of apple flavor, which I think is understandable to anyone." 

Take some time to go to the Farmers' Market, or talk to your green grocer about the very best apples to buy now. Enjoy the holiday aromas in your kitchen as the cake is baking. And offer this cake as a gluten free, low sugar, and dairy free (except for grass-fed butter) option on your Thanksgiving dessert table. 


My Paleo Marin: 4 Persimmons


Ingredients and Instructions:

See David Liebovitz's excellent post for "German Apple-Almond Cake" here.


Paleo substitutions in the recipe are: 1/2 cup Blonde coconut sugar; Cup4Cup Gluten Free Flour; grass-fed butter; and Arrowroot Starch (for cornstarch).

My Paleo Marin Rating between 1-5 Persimmons
I try out these recipes so you don't have to (and modify them for Paleo where possible). The rating will reflect my opinion of the final result in terms of taste, ease of preparation, nutrition, and sometimes, cost.
