Fall Cider Loaf Ingredients
I love cozy recipes during the fall, and this loaf has to be the most comforting. Plus it will make your entire house smell divine! Here are the main ingredients:
- Apple (Honeycrisp and Red or Green)
- Gluten-Free Flour (all-purpose gluten free blend, oat or almond flour, and tapioca flour)
- Cinnamon & Cardamom
In terms of kitchen equipment, here’s everything I used in this particular recipe:
Moist & Dense Texture
This recipe used fruit juices, so the end result is a decadent moist and dense texture. If you prefer airy and light, this is not the recipe for you! It’s perfect for autumn and winter because it’s so warming, but it really can be enjoyed all year round.
This fruity glaze isn’t necessary, but it is so delicious. I recommend storing it on the size and adding it individually as needed. I used a mortar and pestle to smash the pomegranates, and left the seeds in for extra nutrients.

- Sift the dry ingredients (flours, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt, and spices) into one bowl and the remaining wet ingredients (blended fruit mix, coconut sugar, coconut oil, flax eggs, and vanilla) in another bowl. Make sure each mixture is fully combined before slowly mixing the dry ingredients into the wet. Chop the 2 red or green apples into cubes and mix into the batter. See photos for reference regarding the size of the cubes.
- Add parchment paper to your pan and pour the mixture inside. Bake for about 90 minutes then let cool for at LEAST 25 minutes before pouring the glaze and cutting in.
- To make the glaze, mash pomegranate seeds until they form a juice. You can leave the seeds in. Add 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and mix until a glaze forms. If the mixture is too liquidy, add more powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached.
