Gluten Free Apple Spice Cake

Gluten-free dessert recipes for Thanksgiving is something that can be pretty hard to make. There are many things you can choose from but they may not be like the gluten-filled desserts many others have on Thanksgiving. This gluten-free apple spice cake is perfect for Thanksgiving and any time you want some type of special dessert. It doesn't need ingredients that are too complicated and the directions are very easy as well. Bisquick is used for this recipe and provides great texture so I really recommend it. Hope you enjoy this Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Recipe!

  1. I tried to read comments and the site selected two and a half stars rather than taking me to comments. I inadvertently rated this, looks really good and I haven't tried therefore didn't mean to rate.

  2. Hi Taylor, is this recipe for gluten free flour or bisquick? The recipe says flour but you state you used gluten free Bisquick? Thanks

  3. I wondered the same thing GF Flour or GF Bisquick. Since he mentions the GF Bisquick several times and the link is to GF Bisquick I would guess it is the bisquick. I'm going to try it with that anyway.
