Apple Pie Bundt Cake {recipe}

Apple Pie Bundt CakeThis month, the Kosher Connection blogging buddies took on a challenge to all post recipes about apples.  I knew eactly what I was going to bake!  I saw this recipe for apple pie bundt cake on a blog I follow called Buttercream Bakehouse.  She originally adapted the recipe from Lucky Leaf, a company probably best known for fruit pie fillings.  I love the ease of using a ready made filling, I use a canned strawberry filling in my strawberry banana crumb cake, and it tastes great!  I am all for using shortcuts to make life easier and the original recipe calls for canned apple pie filling, but sometimes there is nothing better than homemade.  For this recipe I made my own apple pie filling and then mixed it into a sweet cake batter.  (If you are using my pie filling recipe special for this cake I would only make a half batch).  The cake was perfect there but I took it a step further and topped it with a homemade salted caramel glaze.  You can definitely skip the glaze and just finish it with a dusting of powdered sugar before serving.  The cake is moist, delicate and sweet all on it’s own.  This is a perfect cake for your holiday table, plus it is so quick and easy to prepare; and my recipe is non-dairy!

    • LilMissCakes

      This should work in a 9×13 pan! If you do try that let me know how it goes!

    • i am going to try it too, i don’t have a bundt pan! or maybe i should just buy one already…

  • Alison @ Alibabka

    You had me at “topped it with homemade salted caramel”!

  • Chanie@BusyInBrooklyn

    mmmm that looks so inviting!

    Can you substitue caramel syrup for caramel sauce in this recipe?

    • LilMissCakes

      It should work, but I would add a little bit at a time because the caramel syrup may be thinner.

        Thanks so much for your response! I ended up making the cake this past weekend but unfortunately, I left it in the oven for 45 minutes and when I removed it from the oven, it seemed as though my toothpick was clean but the next day, when I was taking it out of the bundt pan, the bottom half was completely raw. Do you really only leave it in for 35-40 min? I’ve never had an issue with the timing from any of your other recipes… It was sad because it looked so delicious otherwise 🙂
