Double Apple Bundt Cake

This cake is made with both applesauce and diced Granny Smith apples.  We used a chunky applesauce, but feel free to experiment with your favorite style.  The cake is wonderfully moist and aromatic, and makes a nice afternoon snack with a cup of creamed tea, or a tasty evening dessert.

  1. mmmm, this would be wonderful with some powdered sugar on top and a cup of warm, spice tea. this just makes me yearn for autumn... great recipe!

  2. I love the chunks of apples in the cake. Looks great for enjoying with a cup of tea!

  3. I'm a sucker for any baked good made with apples, especially the kind with big juicy apple chunks like this one. This is going into the must-try pile for sure, especially since I have some applesauce in the freezer that ought to get used soon-like.

  4. I luv these types of cakes with fruit or vegetables as part of the ingredients. I look forward to making this (probably in muffin form). :)

  5. This looks so moist and dense (in a good way). I like the combination of spices you used.

  6. love how you added lemon zest! and not too much butter too! yummy, gonna have to try this soon!!
