Apple Bundt Cake is a family favorite, with its moist cinnamon batter and large chunks of tart apples that are plucked right from the trees on our farm. I went on and on about the fantastic apple tree on our property when I shared these Apple & Cream Cheese Puffs with Dulce de Leche, and this is just one more of the many ways we like to enjoy the sweet apple harvest of fall.
Despite it being fall and all of the men in our family being pretty busy on the farm, my little sister is getting married this coming weekend. She is the baby of the family, so only she could get away with picking a fall date for her wedding. It is hard to believe that she is grown enough to be tying the not. Just yesterday it seems like we were still living at home fighting with one another over the silliest of things. I’m excited for her, that she found a wonderful guy who not only treats her great but can put up with her. 😉 That is no small feat people!
These last couple of weeks have been a mad rush trying to get all of the last minute details for the wedding completed. It feels like I am doing more for this wedding, than I ever had to with my own?! Whether it is designing and printing table numbers, programs and place cards, or making favors, those are just a few of the things on MY to-do list. I think I might need to start charging a wedding planning fee. Haha!
In the end, all of the work is worth it, to help my sister who is one of my best friends, throw a great party to celebrate her marriage and this next chapter in her life!
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/4 c. vegetable or canola oil
- 2 c. sugar
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 3 c. flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3 to 4 c. apples chopped in 1/2" pieces
- 1 c. chopped pecans or walnuts
- Preheat your oven to 350° and grease and flour a bundt pan. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, oil, sugar and vanilla until well combined. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, soda, cinnamon, and salt. Combine the egg and flour mixture, being careful not to overwork the mixture. Fold in the chunks of apples and nuts.
- Pour the mixture into the greased and floured bundt pan and bake at 350° for one hour. To test the cake, poke with a clean toothpick. If it comes out clean, it is done. If there is batter on the toothpick, continue to bake, checking every 5-10 minutes with a new toothpick.
- Serve warm or at room temperature with a dollop of whipped cream.
