    This Apple Bundt Cake has been a family favorite for years, one that my great-grandmother used to make! I would ask her, “How do you make a bundt cake, Grandma?” And she would lean in with a gleam in her eye and whisper, “You just stand by me and I’ll show you!”

    How to Make an Apple Bundt Cake

    There are a couple of important things to remember when making a bundt cake. Make sure you start with a good recipe (one that fits in a bundt pan!) that has been tested and perfected. The other is your pan. Because this cake has big chunks of apples the batter will not mold perfectly in some of the bundt pans with more intricate designs. A classic bundt pan should work perfectly!

    This recipe has been handed down through the generations and definitely stands the test of time. I remember Grandma sending us into the yard to gather up apples so we could bake this cake! And standing by her in the kitchen as she would slowly stir the caramel. Sometimes, if I was good, I even got to drizzle her famous caramel sauce over the cake!

    Tips, Tricks, Variations

    This cake could also be called an Apple Cinnamon Bundt Cake as we certainly packed in the cinnamon flavor! One thing that could really put this recipe over the top is using McCormick’s Apple Pie Spice. Simply substitute it for the cinnamon in this recipe.

    How to Ice a Bundt Cake

    Frosting this cake could not be easier. Simply prepare the caramel sauce recipe as directed, then pour over the cake. A couple variations are waiting 15 minutes to pour the caramel. It will be nice and thick and holds it’s shape. If you pour it immediately, it will soak into the apple bundt cake and do magical things. Both are delicious!

        • 2 c (450g) granulated sugar
        • 1 1/2 c (336g) vegetable oil

        • 2 tsp. heavy cream
        • 1/2 c packed brown sugar
        • 1 tsp. McCormick vanilla extract



        1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (175°C). Grease a 9 inch Bundt pan.
        2. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, oil, vanilla, and eggs with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
        3. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; stir into the batter just until blended.
        4. Fold in the apples by hand. Pour into the prepared bundt pan.
        5. Bake for 55-70 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
        6. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes in the pan and then invert on to a wire rack.

        Caramel Glaze

        1. Heat the butter, heavy cream, and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat.
        2. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar, then remove from the heat.
        3. Add in vanilla and stir until combined. Let sit 5-10 minutes to thicken.

        You give conflicting information in the comments about the correct temperature. In one response you say the correct temperature is 325 degrees and then to another commenter you say the correct temperature is 350. Can you please clarify and if it is indeed 350 can you please correct the written recipe. Thank you.

        Hi Amanda, I made your apple crisp today using honey crisp and Granny Smith apples. It turned out amazing! I think on our cold Texas mornings that we have had lately,warmed up apple crisp will be delicious!

          So thrilled to hear that you liked it, Bonnie! <3

        I made this cake for a work get together and people loved it! I was worried that I had the proportion of apple to dough off (there just seemed to be a lot of apple relative to the dough), but it worked out well! I could not get the caramel to work to save my life so I topped the cake with a cinnamon glaze instead. Thanks for the recipe!
