TWD: Double Apple Bundt Cake


Lynne of Honey Muffin chose Double Apple Bundt Cake for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe.

This moist and tasty cake was a HUGE hit this Sunday when friends and family came over for the football game (go, Bengals!) My husband pulled the old "I'm inviting people over for the football game, and oh by the way, can you feed us?" Not in those words exactly, but you know the routine... the puppy dog eyes, the hopeful smile.

What the heck... I had a cake to make, might as well have a gang of hungry football fans to feed it to.

As I said, this was much loved. Even my husband, a die-hard chocolate fan and not an apples-and-cinnamon fan, kept going back for seconds and thirds. With both shredded apple and apple butter in the cake, I can see why it was so moist and apple-icious.

Thank you Lynne for choosing this recipe. You'll find the recipe on Lynne's blog or in Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours".

Looks wonderful! Love the color you have on this. I was surprised that so far I have not seen anyone chocolate up this recipe...not usually the case around here. Even Katrina didn't have chocolate on it this week. Yours looks beautiful.

This is the perfect treat to feed a crowd.

I'm so glad that your family and friends enjoyed it. I made half the recipe for a small bundt pan, and my husband and I goobled the entire thing in a couple of days!

Nope, no chocolate in the cake (what Kayte doesn't know is that I also made choc chip cookies the same day!) ;)
Perfect looking cake there.

Your double apple bundt cake looks so moist and delicious in your photo! We loved it too.

That's a perfect situation, because you can make a whole bundt cake, get to taste it, and then pass it off to appreciative guests without ending up eating the whole thing yourself. :) I could use a few more hungry football fans around here!
