If there is one thing I can tell you about gluten free baking, it’s that if it works, keep doing it. A mantra I have stood by through and through, and the reason why I have posted 8 slightly different variations of cheesecakes – so far.
Baking gluten free is not always as simple as just substituting regular flour for gluten free flour – I wish. The trick to being more successful in your baking is not trying to re-inventing the wheel every time, rather sticking to what you know.
This Apple Spice Loaf is similar to this Apple Currant Bread I shared with you all a while ago. Using the same base recipe, I changed it up by adding some nutmeg and ground clove to give it more of a holiday taste, then added some pepitas for extra crunch, and showered the whole thing with confectioners sugar. Et voila! A new-ish recipe.
