  • 1 ½ cups vanilla yogurt

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 3 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3 cups gluten-free all purpose baking flour

  • 3 tablespoons ground flax seed

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground cloves

  • teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 4 apples, shredded

Caramel Sauce:

  • ½ cup butter

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons milk


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®).

  2. Beat yogurt, white sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth.

  3. Combine flour, flax seed, cinnamon, salt, cloves, and nutmeg together in a separate bowl. Stir yogurt mixture into flour mixture just until batter is combined; fold in apples. Pour batter into prepared pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 70 to 75 minutes. Turn cake onto a serving plate.

  5. Melt butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and milk together in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and cool until sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour sauce over cake.

Cook's Note:

All-purpose flour can be used in place of gluten-free flour blend if desired.
