Apple Bundt Cake

There are endless ways to use apples when baking, and one great way is to make an apple Bundt cake. When I think of September, I think of colorful apples, going apple picking, and then using them in my recipes.

September is the apple month

The activity of going to an orchard to pick apples and then using them for baking is very satisfying. I love getting my kids involved in the process too because it’s educational and fun.

September is also the month of high holidays, and baking an apple Bundt cake, that’s also round, is a great addition to the Rosh Hashanah meal. Instead of brown sugar, use a few tablespoons of honey to make this a perfect Jewish New Year dessert.

Best apples for making apple Bundt cake

 

Green Apples

Apples make this Bundt cake very moist. Green apples are my favorite for this recipe, preferably Granny Smith. You can also try Mcintosh or Cortland variety. These types of apples tend to be less sweet and add a delicate tart taste to add character and balance the flavor.

Try to avoid using apples that are extremely juicy, like Honey Crisp or Fuji, otherwise the extra moisture could hinder the rising of your Bundt cake and it might turn out dense.

If you notice that the apples you’re using are too juicy, peal and slice them, then let them sit on the counter for at least 30 minutes. Pour out the excess juice and either drink it or use it for making pie crust.

Use delicate flour to make your apple Bundt cake supple

My favorite flour for this recipe is wheat flour from Poland type 450 “Tortowa”. It’s comparable to Pastry flour in the US or Canada, and it will help make your apple Bundt cake extra fluffy and airy.

You can also use all purpose wheat flour, but it’s a heavier flour type because it contains more protein, so I recommend you either add an extra egg or add 1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder if you choose to use the all-purpose flour.

Invest in a Bundt baking pan

For this recipe you’ll need a Bundt cake baking pan. I recommend investing in one if you are a fan of Bundt cakes just like me. If you don’t have one, you can also use a bread loaf pan, although you might need two to fit all the batter.
