Apple Cinnamon Bundt Cake

Recipe by PanNan
READY IN: 1hr 30mins


  • For the cake
  • 2 12
    cups flour
  • 1
    tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2
    teaspoons baking powder
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 12
    teaspoon baking soda
  • 1
    cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 12
    cups packed brown sugar (it calls for light brown, but I used dark brown, and I really liked that)
  • 4
    large eggs
  • 6
    medium apples (keep from turning brown with a little lemon juice squeezed on the slices) or 4 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced 1/4 inch (keep from turning brown with a little lemon juice squeezed on the slices)
  • For the glaze
  • 2 -3
    tablespoons water (I used apple juice, yum!)


  • Preheat oven to 350, and prepare the 12 cup bundt pan (grease and flour if you don't have a non-stick).
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together.
  • In a large bowl, melt the butter in the microwave, and add brown sugar and eggs, whisking until smooth.
  • Gradually whisk in dry ingredients just until combined- don't overmix.
  • Fold in the apples (it will look sort of like peanut butter coated apple slices, but don't worry- the batter bakes up around the apple slices) and spoon batter into the bundt pan, smoothing the top.
  • Bake until a tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean (about an hour).
  • Cool in the pan for about 15 minutes, and invert onto a rack placed over wax paper to cool completely.
  • Make the glaze by whisking the water (or apple juice) together with the confectioners' sugar adding just enough liquid to make the glaze thick but pourable.
  • Drizzle glaze over completely cooled cake, and let it firm up before serving.
