  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs

  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 cups chopped apples, about 3 medium. I used Granny Smith

Frosting

  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 23 tablespoons milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350*
  2. Generously grease a fluted bundt pan (12 cup pan)
  3. In bowl of stand mixer beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth.
  5. Add in baking soda, salt and cinnamon and beat until incorporated.
  6. Turn mixer to low and add in flour. Mix until just combined.
  7. Stir in chopped apples.
  8. Fill prepared pan with cake batter and bake for 55-65 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Allow cake to cool in pan for 10 minutes and then remove cake from pan onto a wire rack to continue cooling.

Frosting

  1. In a small saucepan melt butter and cook over medium heat until butter is a golden color, stirring consistently.
  2. As soon as butter is golden, remove from heat and beat in powdered sugar, vanilla and 1 tablespoon of milk using a hand mixer. Add more milk until the consistency you desire is reached. if you prefer more of a glaze than a frosting you will need to add a few more tablespoons of milk than the recipe calls for.
  3. Frost top of cake.
  4. Slice and serve.

Notes:

store at room temperature for up to 3 days covered.
