How to make Apple Cinnamon Bundt Cake
Apple Bundt Cake Batter
I used Granny Smith because I love the crisp tartness and they are wonderful to bake with. You can certainly use other types of apples that are suitable for baking; such as Golden Delicious, Gala, Honey Crisps, Fuji, Jonathan, & etc.
You can adjust the amount of sugar depends on the sweetness of the apple of your choice.
I also like to grate the apples into the cake batter. It makes the cake moist and tender. You can dice the apples into small pieces, instead, if you prefer small chunks of apple showing in the cake.
This is a forgiving recipe. The addition of sour cream ensures that your cake comes out very soft, moist, and tender.
Cinnamon Walnut Filling
The filling is simple as it can be; granulated white sugar, cinnamon powder, and chopped walnut. Just mix it up and sprinkle in between the divided batter. That’s all.
Baking a bundt cake is fun and rewarding. Make sure you grease and flour the pan thoroughly to ensure your cake comes out clean.
I used a baking spray that you can easily find in any grocery stores these days. That makes the greasing job so easy.
Bundt cake doesn’t need a fancy job of decoration. I simply dusted my cake with some powdered sugar.
You can also drizzle with basic white glaze if you like, that would look lovely as well. Present you cake on a nice round cake platter.
