Viking Almond Apple Cake Recipe #DreamworksDragons

apple Almond cake By now, you’ve seen DreamWorks Dragons: Race to the Edge on Netflix. If you’re like us, you may have watched the first thirteen episodes all the way through, and have started over again. With a long weekend coming up, it’s a great time to have your own Dragon’s party! Gather the kids together, make some Dragon Fire Cupcakes, some Marshmallow dragon’s teeth, some Dragon’s snot and even a home made Vikings hat! But the adult guests may not want the super sugary sweet treats. So I started looking around for Viking recipes, and stumbled on one for an almond apple cake. It only had a few ingredients, was naturally gluten free, and looked easy enough. But it immediately fell apart and the recipe was lacking (a lot) of something. So I played with it – so this is more of a Viking inspired cake – it’s still gluten free, not overly sweet and would be great with coffee, a scoop of ice cream or fresh berries!
