Easy Caramel Apple Bundt Cake

Sharing with your friends!

Easy to make caramel apple bundt cake recipe that uses fresh apples, and is topped with a sweet and creamy caramel flavored glaze.

One of my goals in life is to live on a few acres and have my own miniature apple orchard. This is something I’ve dreamt of since I was a little girl. Of course, that dream has evolved as I’ve gotten older, but I still want my very own orchard (and chickens!). I’ve always loved apples–apple cider, apple butter, apple bread, even apple pie.

Caramel Apple Bundt Cake so

Of course, given the time of year, apples are in abundance everywhere and they are so so cheap–whether you have your own mini orchard or not 😉 Anyway, I’ve been craving more apples ever since I made that wonderfully delicious apple pie a few weeks ago. That’s where this Caramel Apple Bundt Cake Recipe comes into play. This fall cake recipe even uses fresh apples and is topped with a deliciously creamy caramel sauce.

Easy to make caramel apple bundt cake recipe that uses fresh apples, and is topped with a sweet and creamy caramel flavored glaze.

Ingredients

For the Cake

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 TBSP vanilla
  • 3 medium apples, peeled and finely chopped

For the Caramel Glaze

  • 4 tbsp butter, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted **
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

For the Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 325, and lightly grease a fluted pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl, combine oil, applesauce, yogurt, and sugars. Mix together until well combined.
  4. Beat in eggs and vanilla until creamy.
  5. Pour mixture into dry ingredients and stir until just incorporated. Do not over mix here.
  6. Fold in apple chunks.
  7. Spoon mixture into prepared pan and bake for 55-65 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. It may be necessary to cover the edges of the cake with foil towards the end to avoid over-browning.

For the Caramel Glaze

  1. Melt butter over medium heat
  2. Stir in brown sugar, vanilla and cream and whisk together until fully mixed.
  3. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring often.
  4. Let boil for 1 minute with no stirring.
  5. Reduce heat and let simmer 1 minute.
  6. Remove from heat and let cool slightly to thicken (about 2 minutes)
  7. Whisk in powdered sugar (sifted) and mix until smooth.
  8. Immediately spoon glaze over cake and let cool before serving.

Notes

** Sifting the powdered sugar helps prevents clumps of sugar in the glaze

I just used a standard bundt pan, I believe it's 12 cup or 10.5 inch

I’m making this today and very excited to eat it. The recipe doesn’t say when to add vanilla, I assume after adding powdered sugar?

Thanks for pointing that out Emily. You'll add the vanilla for the caramel glaze in step 2, however if you add it in with the powdered sugar that should be fine.
