Something that you might not know about me if you’re new to my blog is I love baking! Something about transforming ingredients into something tasty makes me feel accomplished and relaxed. It’s always a huge bonus when people enjoy what I bake too. It feels like my contribution and I love that.
This past weekend was Thanksgiving in Canada so we went to stay with my in-laws (who are great!) and I wanted to bring something “Thanksgiving-y” for everyone to snack on. There’s so many things you make with pumpkin but I figured we were already having pumpkin pie so I craved something different, but still Thanksgiving/Fall themed.
I ended up deciding on making a spiced apple bundt cake and it was SO good! It was super easy to make, mostly required ingredients you usually have in the kitchen, and it stood up to the 3 hour drive really well.
Everyone loved it and it’s definitely a recipe that I will keep on rotation! The apples add a little sweetness to perfectly compliment the spice flavor from the cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, and a slice is perfect with either a rich, creamy butter or even a cream cheese icing.
I originally planned on taking pictures throughout the entire baking process, but I totally forgot! So all I have is this one pic that I took at the end.
