Apple Bundt Cake

By Loren Lindler

Cooler temperatures are here, and it is officially apple season in Georgia. So we thought we would share a fun recipe to celebrate the first signs of fall. This apple bundt cake is full of apples, cinnamon, and covered in a decadent caramel sauce, so what's not to love about this recipe?

We recommend using Georgia Grown apples for this recipe - any variety will do. The apples used to make this cake were picked at the Red Apple Barn in Elijay, but be sure to check out our "Let's Go Apple Picking!" blog to find a number of other apple orchards in north Georgia.



  • 2 c. granulated sugar

  • 1 ½ c. vegetable oil

  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 3 large eggs room temperature

  • 3 c. all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • 1 ½ tsp. cinnamon

  • 1 tsp. salt

  • 3 medium apples - peeled, cored, and chopped

Caramel Topping

  • ½ c. butter ( 1 stick)

  • 2 tsp. heavy cream

  • ½ c. packed brown sugar

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract



  1. Preheat oven to 325°F and 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 chopped 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 20 minutes in the pan and then invert to a wire rack

Caramel Topping

  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 heat

  3. Add in vanilla and stir until combined; let sit 5 - 10 minutes to thicken

  4. Drizzle over the warm cake

As you serve up your apple bundt cake to share with friends and family, you are in for a special fall treat. Enjoy!
