Applesauce Bundt Cake

Okay, I made a bunch of really lovely applesauce…of course, then my kids decided they didn’t like it. Figures. So I have a quart of applesauce and only grownups to eat it.

So I made cake.  This is adapted from a recipe I found here, made a little more healthful…it’s really good!

Applesauce Spice Cake

Preheat oven to 350

In a large bowl mix:

  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar (or 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup powdered milk)
  • 2 cups applesauce
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Add (just till mixed):

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

Pour into greased bundt pan and bake about an hour, or until a knife inserted comes out clean.

VERDICT: Really good! This is a keeper.

  1. You know what I thought of when I read bundt? My Big Fat Greek Wedding lol. And I never did exactly know what it was… but now I do!

    • Really? We’ve eaten these since I was a kid–my grandma made a lovely rum cake in her bundt pan. They make such pretty slices, and you don’t have to do layers…I have a silicone bundt pan that makes it really easy to get the cake out of it, and it’s one of my most-used pieces of bakeware.
