Gluten free cake - apple and cinnamon cake

Gluten free cake is easier to make than you might think.  All you need is some naturally gluten free flour and a teaspoon or two of xanthan gum (if your gluten free flour doesn’t already come with it in it.)  These instructions are for a basic one bowl vanilla cake, but feel free to make your own variations.  We’ve added apples and cinnamon here to show you how easy it is to be creative with this cake base. It’s moist and delicious and is the base for our Apple Cinnamon cake pops which are sure to be party favourites!
