Spiced Caramel Apple Bundt Cake

Spiced Caramel Apple Bundt Cake

Autumn is the season where apples really shine and they are so fab to bake with. My stepmum has an apple tree so I’m always in receipt of plenty of apples when October comes around. This year I’ve made a Spiced Caramel Apple Bundt Cake with brown sugar for that deep caramelised flavour. I’ve added plenty of Autumn spices, and chunks of fresh apple. Then I’ve drizzled the whole cake in caramel sauce. Drooling yet?! It’s Autumn in a cake, and is sure to warm you up on a cold night!

Step by step…

I mixed the light brown sugar and butter together, then I whisked in eggs and yoghurt.

Then I added flour, spices and apple chunks. I poured the batter into my bundt tin.

The cake baked for around an hour, I turned it out of the tin to cool fully.

To decorate, I poured caramel sauce all over the cake, then added dried apple slices.

What caramel sauce should I use?

My favourite caramel sauce to use is my Homemade Caramel Sauce, it’s rich, smooth and absolutely divine! You can also easily add salt to it to make it into a salted caramel sauce. If you don’t want to make your own, it’s quite easy nowadays to find a good quality ready made caramel (or salted caramel) sauce in the shops or online. I have used Tesco’s Finest, Bonn Maman and Carnation Caramel in the past with great results.

Tips for making the Spiced Caramel Apple Bundt Cake:

– I always grease and flour my tin to ensure the bundt cake doesn’t stick. This means covering it well with butter then adding a dusting of flour. Pay attention to any small crevices your bundt tin may have and grease right in there. I wouldn’t recommend using a very intricate bundt tin for this cake because of the chunks of apple.
– Wait to peel and chop the apple till the last minute. Get everything mixed besides the flour and spices, then prepare the apple. Mix in the flour and spices, and then fold in the apple. This means the apple has a short time exposed to the air and is less likely to brown.
– You can toss the apple in a little bit of flour (about 1 tsp) to ensure it doesn’t sink if you are worried about this, but if the chunks are relatively small it should be ok without doing this.
– This cake can be frozen without the decoration. Wrap it well in baking paper, then a good few layers of cling film to prevent freezer burn.

  1. This recipe looks delicious. Is there anyway to translate the grams to cups , and oven temp? Thanks

    1. Hi Page, I have some information on translating grams to cups on this page on my blog: https://thebakingexplorer.com/ingredients-conversions/ You can probably just google the oven temperature conversion. Please be aware I’ve never made this using cups, so not sure if it would affect it any way, I always recommend using scales as they’re so much more accurate 🙂
