About The Recipe

Even though it’s technically the middle of August, I don’t think you can ever start the amazing fall baking too early.. Between the amazing smells of cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and cider filling the air, it’s hard not to get in the spirit! Plus, the weather is already starting to get a little chilly here. I think I even see some leaves turning outside my window…

So, I can’t think of a better time to share this Spiced Apple Bundt Cake with all of you. And, with Fall being our absolute favorite season, this cake absolutely embraces the best of the best when it comes to Fall. It’s kinda like a caramel apple…but SO much better.

We decided to let fresh granny smith apples and our Homemade Caramel Sauce be the true inspiration for this cake. From there, everything just fell into place and created one of the best cakes to date!

The cake itself is sweet and moist, but not overly sweet and has some subtle cinnamon-y/nutmeg notes. The cake just by itself is drool worthy, but when you finish it with the caramel sauce, the cake becomes irresistible! It’s delicious right out of the oven or even the next day.

It’s truly the perfect cake to start letting yourself get into the Fall baking mood!

How To Store

This cake really needs to be kept in the refrigerator! It’s a very moist cake so, leaving it out any longer than a few days may cause it to ruin. Just keep in mind the caramel will soak into the cake so, if you’re making this ahead of time, add the caramel sauce right before you need it!

You could also freeze this cake as a whole or individual slices.

Substitutions
