Sourdough Latvian Apple Cake THM E, SF, DF

Bins and crates of apples can be found in produce stands this time of year. Their colorful hues range from bright green, yellows, pinks to vibrant reds. Combine apples and sourdough into a sweet treat to eat for dessert or even for breakfast with a cup of coffee. This Latvian Sourdough Apple Cake is a hit with a sweet caramel layer of apples hidden under sourdough batter.

I buy apples by the bushel as they store very well. Fuji and Honeycrisp are a favorite eating apple and Cortland and Rome are favorites for baking. Apples are very easy to grow for the hobbiest gardener. They do require pruning and spraying and are very hardy. We had quite a number of apple trees at our previous place and they gave bushels of fruit. Apples are high in Vitamin C and insoluble fiber.

This recipe does not need to ferment for 7 hours like other sourdough items do. I created this recipe to use discard starter that you may need to get used up and sprouted flour. The batter can be baked as soon as it it mixed and it is on plan as a Trim Healthy Mama E recipe. I will add 2 tablespoons of Half and Half to my daughters’ serving. Combined with the fat in the recipe this is still under the requirement for an E meal.

I melted the butter in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Two tablespoons of Brown Sugar Sweetener and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon are sprinkled over the butter.

Apples slices are layered over the sweetener/cinnamon layer. This gives a sweet caramel apple layer in the cake. So delicious!!

The sourdough batter is poured over the apples and immediately placed into a hot oven.

  • 1 teaspoon butter or coconut oil for dairy free
  • 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar Sweetener Substitute
  • 4 cups peeled and sliced apples
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided
  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter, unfed or refrigerated
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup sprouted whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar Sweetener Substitute
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a 10-inch frying pan melt butter or coconut oil over medium heat. When butter is melted sprinkle 2 tablespoon Brown Sweet Mix and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon over melted butter. Arrange apple slices over cinnamon/sweetener mixture. Blend sourdough starter, almond milk and egg whites together. Set aside. In a bowl, whisk together sprouted whole wheat flour, Brown Sugar Sweetener, baking powder, baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Combine almond milk/starter mixture with flour mixture just until combined. Over-stirring will make your batter tough. Pour batter over apples. Sprinkle batter with an additional tablespoon of Brown Sugar Sweetener Substitute and cinnamon if desired. Place skillet in preheated oven and bake for 15-18 minutes. Serves 6.
  • You can use Gentle Sweet instead of the Brown Sweetener Mix but you will not get quite the caramel taste.
