You may think of apple bundt cake as a delicious fall dessert treat, but it doesn’t have to just be relegated to the end of the year! Add a little citrus and you have a treat that can be served as a warm dessert or as a nice picnic treat on a spring day.
This simple to make apple cake recipe was given to me by a dear friend who is actually a trained chef – so I know anything he passes along is worth giving a try! It is both refreshing and reminiscent of Grandma with layers of sweet apples, the flavor of orange and an infusion of cinnamon.
This can be put together in 15 minutes and the aroma will have everyone in the house rushing to the kitchen table for a glass of milk and piece of your amazing apple cake! It’s simple to put together. Just put a layer of batter, a layer of apples, and then top with a layer of batter.
The best part is, it can be served any time (assuming you have any left-over!). Let it cool, cover, and slice it up for a sweet breakfast treat with a big glass of orange juice, or a nice addition to your packed lunch in the office or at school. Keep a slice for your afternoon coffee. You can serve it warm for dessert with a nice scoop of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream.
There are some simple changes you can make to the recipe to make different versions including an orange apple bundt cake, a lemon orange (citrus) apple bundt cake or a Grand Marnier apple bundt cake.
Any way you slice it, this apple bundt cake will become a big hit with everyone who tries it!
