Paleo Apple Bundt Cakes are yummy!  On this Paleo path, you can eat versions of almost anything, including desserts. I often hunt through the kitchen section at our local non-profit thrift shop in search of interesting, rare, or unusual plates, cooking utensils, or equipment super usually available at reasonable rates.  I like shopping for these gems to use in my Healthy (Paleo) blogs.  

While hunting there a few days ago I happen to find this mini bundt cake pan and decided to try my hand at making Paleo mini bundt cakes. I figured making these desserts might be possible since I had already made delicious banana bread from this same dough, as well.

A Bundt cake is a cake baked in a Bundt pan. The pan shapes the cake (or in this case cakes) into a distinctive doughnut shape. The shape is inspired by a traditional European cake known as Gugelhupf. There is no single recipe for Bundt cake. So my recipe is ideal for our Paleo lifestyle.

WHAT ARE THE NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS OF APPLE SAUCE?

My Paleo Apple Bundt Cakes recipe uses apple sauce.  Apple sauce is low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. It is also a decent source of fiber and vitamin C. Apple sauce is unlikely to spike blood sugar levels. The reason is that the DOH, primarily made with almond flour, helps to slow the digestion of the sugar in the apple sauce, jam, and coconut.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF PALEO APPLE BUNDT CAKES?

What is the taste profile of  Paleo Apple Bundt Cakes? I used unsweetened apple sauce to sweeten the mini cakes and to provide moisture. The cakes possess the texture of bread pudding, dense and chewy, and not too sweet. I love the caramelized apricot jam and dusted coconut icing sugar on top.

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH PALEO APPLE BUNDT CAKES?

With the predominant taste sensation of these Paleo Apple Bundt Cakes being sweetness, choose a wine with more sweetness than the dessert. Otherwise, the sweet dessert will make the wine taste offensively acidic. Wines that are sweeter include late harvest like Riesling or Gewürztraminer, Riesling or Vidal Icewine, Sauternes, and sweet Sherry. What’s great about these little treasures is that they are not too sweet, allowing the wine to be sweeter.  Think about it.  Do you want to add additional sugar to your meal?  If not, opt for a cup of tea.

WINE TIPS:

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Paleo or Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.
