These luscious little apple cakes say “autumn” with every bite. Made with sweetly tart apples fresh off the tree, spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, and a delightful cider glaze.

Why Try? This is a dessert just about everyone will love and it makes a wonderful presentation.

Foodie Byte: You may choose to serve it whole, or with a small wedge cut out to display a generous dollop of whipped cream cascading down the center.

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Grease a Bundt pan with oil. In medium bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg and set aside.
  3. In large bowl, blend sugar and butter. Add eggs and milk and beat until well combined.
  4. Add dry ingredients to sugar mixture and stir until just blended. Fold in apples. This makes a very thick batter.
  5. Press batter evenly into prepared mini Bundt pans and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. FOR THE CIDER GLAZE:
  7. Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in both sugars. Add remaining ingredients, stir, and bring to boil.
  8. Reduce heat slightly and cook for 4 minutes.
  9. Remove from heat. Pour while still warm over warm cakes.
