HONEY APPLE CAKE

Around this time of year, I, like many get into the holiday spirit. Although I have a notebook full of favourite holiday baking recipes that I've used for years, I am always on the lookout for new ones to add to the growing list. I found this one recently on the All Recipes website and just knew this was one I was going to add to my list of favourites! They got me with the mention of apples being in the cake. I'm always a bit of a sucker for fresh apples in cakes. The original recipe was designed to fit a bundt cake but knowing that there aren't enough mouths to feed in my family, the bundt cake would be far too big to finish. I cut the recipe in half and baked it in a 9" cake pan. It worked out to be perfect and it tasted even better than originally thought! What a delicious treat it was. I'm thinking it'll make another return visit next Christmas season.

Adapted from the "Apple Honey Bundt Cake" recipe in the All Recipes website. Recipe Submitted by: Jayda

Makes one 9" bundt cake (double the recipe if doing a bundt cake)
or one 9" round cake

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. (for a bundt cake)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. (for a round cake)

Baking time: Bundt cake (50-65 mins), Round Cake (40 minutes)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tbsp liquid honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp each: baking powder, baking soda, salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 6 tbsp walnuts, chopped (optional)
  • powdered sugar (for dusting top of the cake)

Preheat the oven and lightly grease and flour the bundt or cake pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, vegetable oil and egg. Add in the honey and vanilla. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and allspice. Using a spatula, gently incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Fold in the chopped apples and walnuts and bake it in the oven as instructed in the beginning of the recipe, as it depends on what size of cake you're making. Cool the cake for a good 15 minutes before slicing.
