Apple Sauce Bundt with Brown Sugar Glaze
Serves 6-8 • Prep 15 mins • Cooking 45 mins
This is inspired by a recipe from American food website Food 52 and is a fabulous cake to make in celebration of Autumn’s arrival, and with it – all the apples! This will be even better if you can make your own apple sauce but a good store-bought one will be good too.
What you’ll need
250g The Healthy Baker Self Raising Flour
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
1 pinch ground cloves
1 pinch salt
2 eggs eggs
1 cup (210g) caster sugar
110g brown sugar
250g apple sauce
160mls auzure canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the brown sugar glaze
100g butter, cut into cubes
⅔ cups brown sugar
½ cup pouring cream
1 pinch salt
1 ½ cups icing sugar
Preheat oven to 180C and grease your favourite bundt tin.
Combine the flour and spices in a large bowl and whisk to get rid of any lumps.
In the bowl of an electric mixer with the whisk attachment, combine the eggs and sugars and whisk for a few minutes or until pale and fluffy. Add the apple sauce, canola oil and vanilla extract and whisk again until well combined.
Fold wet and dry ingredients together then transfer into your bundt tin and smooth over the top.
Bake for 45 minutes or until the sides of the cake are just pulling away from the tin and a skewer comes out clean. Let cool in the tin for five minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
To make the glaze, combine the butter, sugar and cream in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from heat and whisk in sifted icing sugar. Let glaze cool, whisking every now and then. Pour over cake and let set before cutting.
