How To Make Apple Fritter Cake

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick baking spray.

In a bowl, cream together sugar and room temperature dairy-free butter on high for about 5 minutes. Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract. Incorporate the GF flour, baking powder, baking soda, kosher salt, ground cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. Mix until just combined. Fold in the diced apples and applesauce.

Pour the prepared batter into the greased baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool completely.

In a bowl, combine powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and 3 tablespoons of milk. Mix until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk, a tablespoon at a time, until the desired consistency is reached. Pour the glaze over the cooled cake.
