Serves 8


  • 4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1-1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour (or make your own gluten-free baking flour mix)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Use a large bowl to combine the apples, one cup of orange juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove, cornstarch and pecans, and mix well.
  3. Add the apple mixture to an 11 x 7-inch baking dish and set aside.
  4. In a medium-size bowl, blend together the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Make a well in the center and add the remaining orange juice, egg, butter and milk. Mix well until a smooth batter forms.
  5. Use a spoon to dollop the batter over the apple mixture. Use a spatula to smooth out the batter and spread it evenly over the apples.
