Gluten Free Apple Fritter Cake

It’s the season for baking!! i was wanting something soft and cake-like + apples and cinnamon + crunchy oats and pecans on top. so i made up this recipe – it’s the perfect harmony of an apple fritter meets spongey vanilla spiced cake. pairs perfectly with ice cream for a delish dessert, or warmed up with a cup of coffee for a cozy breakfast.
