Apple Bundt Cake

This month we are tasked  with  creating Bundt cakes  with  spices.

I had a bowl  full  of nice apples begging  for  me  to do  something with them. So into the cake they went. I have already  done some apple cakes so wanted this  one  to be  a little  different. I decided to  use cardamom  as one  of my  spices and also to top  it with  an apple cider caramel  glaze.

Think  of it  as a caramel  apple  cake,   if  you will.

I  was  very  pleased with how  the cake turned  out. I  love the caramel topping. But  I do remind that you get  that  onto the  cake  right away because as it  cools it stiffens. And obviously  you want to glaze  the  cake and not simply glaze the saucepan.

The cardamom may be unusual for  some  of you, but  it  is  a spice my husband and I both adore. But  considering that not  everyone may have that on  hand,   you can always add a  little more  cinnamon as a sub.

  • Bundt pan



  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 16 ounces diced apples
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Caramel Glaze:

  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream


Prepare the Cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Spray a 12-inch Bundt pan with Baker's release spray and set aside.
  • In a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter with the granulated sugar until smooth.
  • Add vanilla, eggs (one at a time) and buttermilk.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cardamom, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Add 1 cup of the flour to the apples, walnuts and raisins and toss to coat.
  • Gradually add the remaining dry ingredients to the wet mixture, leaving apples aside for a sec.
  • When it forms a nice smooth batter, turn off the mixer and fold in the apples by hand using a spatula.
  • Spread the batter into your prepared cake pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 60 minutes or until you can insert and remove a toothpick without wet batter clinging to it.
  • Cool the cake in the pan for fifteen minutes before turning out to finish cooling on a wire rack.
  • When the cake has sufficiently cooled, begin preparing the glaze.

Prepare the Glaze:

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the apple cider and brown sugar, whisking to dissolve.
  • Bring mixture to a boil, and whisk, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes.
  • Remove pan from heat and stir in the heavy cream.
  • Immediately drizzle over the cake because the caramel sets up quickly.
  • Allow caramel to dry.

  1. Do you have any cake recipes that do not use sugar, but instead use honey or another sweetener.? By another sweetener I do not mean the artificial or Keto approved sweeteners.
