TWD - Double Apple Bundt Cake


This week’s TWD recipe is Double Apple Bundt Cake and was chosen by Lynne of Honey Muffin. I made this on Saturday when we had my husband’s brother, his wife, her son and his friend staying with us. We had it for pudding after eating fresh snapper my husband had caught in the afternoon (delicious!!).

This cake was amazing. Everyone went back for seconds. It had a real apple flavour, but because it used grated apple instead of chunks of apple, it was much nicer on the palate. I must confess, I don’t know what apple butter is, which is one of the ingredients. I’ts not something we have in NZ and I can only imagine that it is a bit like lemon curd. So I did a substitution of apple jelly, using an apple jelly I had made quite a few years ago, but never used. Perhaps that was the secret ingredient to this delicious, moist cake. I drizzled over a lemon drizzle made simply with icing sugar and lemon juice. We had it with whipped cream. Perfect!

Your cake looks gorgeous Tammy, and I agree that it was delicious -a real keeper. I have only tried apple butter because someone sent me some for Blogging by Mail once - it is soooooo good. You are right, it is kind of like lemon curd.

Apple butter has the texture of applesauce, only thicker with the flavoring of cinnamon, apple cider, brown sugar and other fall spices.

I make mine in a crock pot.

You should try it.

Your cake looks lovely.

Apple jelly sounds like a great substitute! I subbed some applesauce since I ran out of apple butter.

Guess we just take it for granted that everyone has apple butter. Good sub with the apple jelly. Looks just perfect.
