  • 1/3 cup honey caramel prepared
  • 2 apples peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4" slices
  • 5 organic eggs
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup mild honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup 56 grams coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup 60 grams tapioca flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch fine sea salt


  • Make Honey Caramel as directed.
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF and grease a 9” non-stick cake pan.
  • Lay sliced apples decoratively in the bottom of the prepared pan. Pour the caramel over the apples and evenly spread it using a spatula.
  • To Make Cake: Whisk together eggs, applesauce, honey and vanilla in a large bowl. Add in the coconut flour, tapioca, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and whisk to combine.
  • Pour cake batter into cake pan and smooth out on top of the apple mixture.
  • Bake for about 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool slightly, about 20 minutes and then run a knife around the edges of the pan. Place a serving plate on top of the pan and carefully flip the cake pan upside down. The cake should easily release onto the platter.
  • Garnish the cake with additional honey, if desired.
