How to make it
- Preheat Oven to 350 F.
- Combine diced apples, with 3 Tb sugar, water cinnamon, and rum in a saucepan. Simmer until liquid has mostly evaporated, and the apples have softened. Set aside.
- With electric mixer, beat the eggs and mix well with remaining sugar and the melted butter. Batter will thicken up.
- Stir in the quinoa. Mix together the brown rice flour and baking soda, and slowly add to the batter while continuing to mix.
- Grease a 9"X9" baking pan.
- Pour half of the batter in, smooth over, and fill with the apple mixture, then sprinkle with the shredded coconut. Cover with remaining batter.
- Bake about 30 minutes. Cake is done when top is golden and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
- **I'm thinking about topping it with some fresh whipped cream, or honey next time.
