Apple Bundt Cake is packed with delicious fresh apples and topped with a brown sugar icing that'll knock your socks off. The cake is moist and flavorful and the glaze is irresistible. Great easy dessert option for parties!
Today is the first day this year that screams fall. The leaves are whipping around outside my window, I’m working next to a cozy fire and my house smells like apples, eeek! This Apple Bundt Cake came out of my oven just a few hours ago and it turned out more perfectly than I envisioned. The cake is moist, apple-packed and yummy. The brown sugar icing that gets drizzled over the top complements the cake perfectly and makes “just one bite” turn into an entire massive piece (or two). Apple Bundt Cake is the perfect dessert to bring to a fall party because, well, apples are involved and it is also a super easy to prepare.
My love for bundt cakes has exploded this year (see: Strawberry Bundt Cake and Chocolate Raspberry Bundt Cake) because they are EASY, fool-proof and pretty. Below are a few tidbits about bundt cakes..
Can you make any cake in a bundt pan?
In most cases, you should be able to successfully turn a layer cake recipe (two 9-inch round pans) into a bundt cake. Pound cakes, as well as other dense/moist cakes, turn out great when baked in bundt pans.
How do you keep a bundt cake from sticking to the pan?
Releasing cakes from a bundt pan is my least favorite part of making these yummy desserts. I like to generously coat the pan with cooking spray before adding the batter. Also, let the cake cool for 10-15 minutes before trying to remove it from the pan. A hot cake will break apart easily and a totally cooled cake may stick to the sides. When you are ready to remove it, gently slide a butter knife along the edges to help loosen it from the sides. Invert onto a plate, pray and slowly remove the pan from the cake. If you have small chunks that stick to the pan, no worries! Carefully remove them with a knife and press them back onto the cake before glazing (nobody will ever know). It’s like a scrumptious cake puzzle!
