Spiced Apple Bundt Cake

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.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups All- purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups Brown sugar
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp Ground nutmeg
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2/3 cup Oil
  • 1 1/4 cups Sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 4 apples, peeled and chopped (I prefer Macintosh)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Grease and flour bundt pan
  3. Mix all dry ingredients and set aside
  4. In a mixer, add eggs, vanilla, oil and sour cream/yogurt until combined
  5. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients
  6. Fold in apple pieces
  7. Pour into bundt pan (batter will be thick)
  8. Bake for approx. 1 hour until toothpick comes out clean
  9. Enjoy!
