  • 160 grams sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground mixed spice

  • Dice the apples and add to the egg mixture.
  • Add the sugar, salt, ground cinnamon, and ground mixed spice to the bowl.
  • Stir until combined.
  • Fold in the gluten-free flour.
  • Pour the rice milk in and fold it until combined. You should have a thick batter that is spoonable.

You can use other dairy-free milks, like coconut or soya milk.
I haven’t tried it with an egg substitute but if you do, share it in the comments so that others know how to do it as well.
