Gluten-Free Spiced Apple & Pear Cake

Gluten-Free Spiced Apple & Pear Cake recipe. I made it last week, and it was absolutely delicious! If you're looking for a gluten-free dessert option that is healthy and packed with flavor, this cake is definitely worth a try.
What I love about this cake is that it uses a blend of gluten-free flours, including almond flour and brown rice flour, which gives it a moist and tender texture. Plus, the warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg really make the flavors pop, and the chunks of fresh apples and pears add a burst of sweetness with every bite.
I highly recommend giving this recipe a try, especially during the fall season when apples and pears are in abundance. It's a perfect dessert for those who follow a gluten-free diet, or for anyone who just loves a good slice of cake!
