I love apple kugel, and have come to realize that making kugels gluten-free is actually really simple if you have the right ingredients. I keep an all-purpose gluten-free flour on hand that has xanthan gum already included in it (brands like Bob’s Red Mill and Better Batter). Buy yours online and in bulk for the best prices.
3 golden delicious apples
1 Tbsp lemon juice
¼ cup honey
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla
¼ cup grapeseed or vegetable oil
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 ½ cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
⅛ tsp nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8×8 baking dish.
Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples. Toss with lemon juice and spread evenly into the baking dish.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together two eggs. Add honey, lemon zest, vanilla, oil, and applesauce, whisking to combine.
Add flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg, stirring until all ingredients are incorporated. Pour batter evenly over apples.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes until the edges are browned and the top is firm.
