Gluten Free Butternut Squash-Apple Cake
Imagine a cake made with squash and apples that your entire family will love! Honestly, every time I make this Gluten Free Butternut Squash-Apple Cake, there isn’t a crumb leftover.
This deliciously flavoured moist cake can be served as a dessert, snack or polish it off for breakfast…my favourite 🙂 Your family will never know that this healthy gluten free dessert is made with butternut squash, I promise! And you can never go wrong combining two superfoods like apples and butternut squash.
health benefits of butternut squash,
Butternut Squash is rich in vitamin A and C, but also vitamin E, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic acid (B 5), magnesium and manganese. This wonder squash also provides plenty of fiber and potassium. Including butternut squash in your diet will promote good health
health benefits of apples,
You may have heard an apple a day keeps the doctor away? Well, this may not be entirely true. However, apples contain many health benefits. This delicious fruit is rich in antioxidants and fiber, both very important for our health.
One medium apple has only about 50 calories and about 11 net carbs per apple. Using apples in recipes adds flavour, sweetness and keeps gluten-free baked goods moist and delicious.
By using apples in baking, you use less sugar, which equals healthiness. You may enjoy this Very Best Gluten-Free Apple Fritter Bread. This sweet bread is probably one of our most popular gluten-free apple recipes.
