Gluten-Free apple butter pear & walnut cake
This cake substitutes butter for apple butter, and we can’t think of anything better.
Adapted from Food Stories.
150 g. Chinese 5 Spiced Apple Butter (approx. 5.29 oz.)
3 pears, washed
160 g. sugar (approx. 5.64 oz.)
125 g. ground walnuts (approx. 4.40 oz.)
120 g. rice flour (approx. 4.23 oz.)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cardamom
1 tsp. vanilla bean paste
1 pinch of salt
Powdered sugar, to garnish
1. Preheat oven to 350º.
2. Mix oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, butter and salt together. Press 2/3 of the crumble mixture into the bottom of a 9x13” pan lined with parchment.
3. Bake crust for 10 minutes.
4. Add jam to crust and spread evenly. Top with remaining oat mixture and bake for 25-30 minutes.
5. Remove bars from oven. Eat immediately served with vanilla ice cream (like a fruit crisp!) or chill for a few hours in order to let the bars set up.
*Note: If using a jam with a thinner consistency, cook with a couple tablespoons of cornstarch over medium heat for 10 minutes to thicken.
