Fresh Apple Cake with Caramel Glaze

  • Yield: 16 servings

'"I wanted the taste of caramel apples so I added a glaze to a recipe I had used before. It was a brilliant idea and I would never serve it 'plain' again."


1/4cup cinnamon-sugar mixture
4 apples, chopped small
3 eggs
1cup vegetable oil
2cups all-purpose flour
2cups sugar
1/2teaspoon baking soda
1teaspoon cinnamon
2tablespoons butter
1/2cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2tablespoons milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Grease a Bundt or tube pan and coat with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Mix apples, eggs and oil with an electric mixer. Add flour, sugar, baking soda and cinnamon; mix well.
  3. Pour into pan and bake about 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow cake to rest in pan for at least 10 minutes; invert onto a cake plate.
  4. To prepare glaze, combine butter, brown sugar and milk in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Spoon over cake. Allow to cool before serving.
