Fresh apples and caramel baking bits make this Caramel Apple Bundt Cake a perfect dessert to enjoy with your coffee or hot apple cider.
When do you do most of your baking?
For me it works out best to bake at night. I am much more alert and my kids can also help me. Now that they are older it isn’t as stressful to bake with them. We still have spills and the occasional egg shell in the batter, but I am much more relaxed about it. It makes me laugh to think how uptight I was when they were little and wanting to help.
And biggest reason why I bake at night…there is less of a chance I will cut off a finger.
The other morning I was making a salad for one of my kids to take to school. Now if you know me at all, you know that mornings are not my favorite. I would much rather stay up until super later, than try to get up early. Anyway, I was chopping carrots. Not a good idea when you are half asleep. I just about cut off the tip of my finger…lucky for me I moved just in time and only got a tiny bit. Now that’s one way to wake up and get your adrenaline pumping.
For this apple cake you can dice your Crunch Pak apple slices (just be careful with that knife), or you can throw them into your food processor for a quick pulse. I have actually made this cake twice and did the apples both ways. The one pictured was made with shredded apples. Now if you like to see your apple chunks in your slices, go with the diced apples. The second cake I made had chunks throughout every slice.
Go with whatever makes you happy that moment…or whichever is easiest. (I use my food processor at least 98% of the time because it is so much easier.)
Cakes like this really don’t need frosting, but…I really think it makes it looks so much prettier. So, I went with a light sugar glaze. Powdered sugar and apple cider come together for an easy topping that takes the dessert from delicious to divine.
I still have a bag of Crunch Pak apples in my fridge…I’m thinking I need to make this a third time.
