German style apple cake

  • Servings : 4
  • Prep Time : 0m
  • Cook Time : 4m
  • Ready In : 0m

Preheat oven to 340F (or 170C).

Combine eggs and honey in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer until well combined and fluffy.
In a separate bowl mix almond flour, coconut flour, and baking powder, add to wet ingredients and mix well. Now add the melted coconut oil and mix again.

Peel and take out cores of two apples, cut them into small, thin slices, and mix them into your batter.

Now pour the batter into the baking pan and bake for 30 minutes, cover with aluminum foil and bake for another 10 minutes. Done!

Let it cool for a while. We tried it when it was still slightly warm. Lots of caveman-ish moaning and grunting going on for sure! :) Enjoy!!


  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 5 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 apples
  • 1 tsp baking powder

    whats substitute for almond flour allergic to nuts

      I’m not sure what would work the same way as almond flour. Someone suggested tapioca. This could be hit or miss, as it may come out a little starchy. I’m sorry I don’t have a better answer for you. :(

    I used 7 ounces of green apple and added cinnamon, allspice, and ginger. This is the best cake I’ve ever made, paleo or non-paleo. Thanks for the recipe!

    I made this yesterday. Had two overripe pears so used them instead of apples. Absolutely loved this cake. It was devoured in no time by my family. I can see this batter working well as a pineapple upside down cake. Will give it a try but doubling the batter. I had a small amount left over and let it stay on the counter over night without covering. It held its moistness and taste and texture beautifully.
    Thank you – can’t wait to try new things with this batter.

    My partner has made this several times and its fabulous. We love it. Would like to try with other fruits like fresh pear.. Pineapple might be too wet. Banana?

    Fancied apple cake for tea, did a google search and plumped for this recipe. Oh boy, it’s delicious! My current pack of almond flour is quite almondy so it had a hint of marzipan about it as well and the handful of raisins I threw in the mix worked a treat. I’m soooo making this again. :-)
