Easy Homemade Apple Bundt Cake

This Old-Fashioned Apple Bundt Cake is a Fall favorite. It is a combination of buttery pound cake and apple pie. Two of my favorite desserts! This cake is super moist and packed full of amazing flavor. Cinnamon, pecans, and apples in every bite. You can’t go wrong that that flavor combination! Grab a scarf, some boots, and a cup of apple cider, and relax with a slice of this cake.

Apple Bundt Cake from Scratch

This cake is very easy to make. My favorite thing about this cake is that there is no butter to soften. You can whip up this cake without any planning. In a large bowl, whisk together large eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Add granulated sugar, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon to the wet ingredients. Mix well. Stir in chopped apples and nuts. Pour the batter into a greased and floured Bundt cake pan. Bake until a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean or with a few crumbs. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Cake recipes like this have bake times that can vary greatly between ovens. This cake was ready at about 1 hour and 10 minutes in my oven. Your baking time may be higher or lower and that’s normal. Check the cake at the lower end of the cooking time and every 5 minutes afterward. If the cake starts to get too brown, cover the pan with aluminum foil.

    1. What a great idea! But unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  1. I LOVE butter! Could I substitute/replace some of the oil in this recipe with butter? If yes, what amount would you suggest and should it be melted or softened?
