Moist and flavorful Apple Cinnamon Bundt Cake has perfect fall flavors!
One week til Thanksgiving! I feel like Thanksgiving is getting the shaft this year. It seems like it’s going from Halloween to Christmas and Thanksgiving, typically my favorite holiday, is getting left in the dust. Maybe it’s because I have a toddler this year and she probably cares more about dressing up and presents than just eating, which she has a love/hate relationship with. I, on the other hand, am a food-bloggin’, mashed potato-lovin’, Thanksgiving aficionado. Making food is my love language.
That being said, this cake, that would be the perfect addition to a Thanksgiving table (give the pies a break – I’d take a cake over pie any day), was honestly made in September. Remember last year when I said I wanted to start a new tradition of making half a cake for my daughter’s half birthday (last year I made a Pumpkin Chocolate Marble Bundt Cake)? Well, that’s what this cake was. We “celebrated” her half birthday on September 27th. And by celebrated, I mean we ate this cake. This year she actually got to eat some and she loved it. We kept half and I sent the other half to work with my husband.
Use whatever kind of apples you like – I used Gala for this particular one because that’s what I had on hand. Golden Delicious or Granny Smith would be good.
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
- ¾ cup sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar

- 2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda

- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 cups diced apples (I used Gala)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour a bundt pan and set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat vegetable oil and eggs on medium speed until foamy.
- Add in the applesauce, sugars, nutmeg, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and vanilla. Mix well.
- Stir in the diced apples with a spoon.

- Let cool for 10-15 minutes then flip onto a platter.
