Apple-Cranberry Bundt Cake (Egg-Free, Fat-Free)

"This is a much healthier version of a classic bundt cake. For those with food allergies or who are looking to decrease fat/cholesterol intake, this recipe is egg-free and fat-free. This cake turns out moist with bits of apple and tart cranberry nestled within tender vanilla cake with warm autumnal spices. (Made for a dear relative, who has an egg allergy and was facing gall bladder attacks at the time this recipe was created)."

Ready In:




  • Cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare a 10-cup bundt pan by spraying with fat-free cooking spray and lightly dusting with flour.
  • In a large bowl, stir together sugar and applesauce. Into a small bowl, wisk together cornstarch and warm water (the mixture will be quite dense but smooth). Add cornstarch mixture to applesauce mixture and whisk until combined. Then whisk in non-fat milk and vanilla.
  • Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and whisk together well. Slowly add into wet mixture, whisking until thoroughly combined.
  • Fold apples and cranberries into the batter.
  • Spoon batter evenly into bundt pan, being careful not to brush off too much of the flour dusting.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into cake comes out clean.
  • Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes and turn out onto a cake pedestal or plate.
  • Glaze:

  • Place powdered sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Add vanilla and stir in milk one tablespoon at a time until smooth. If a thinner or thicker consistency is desired, add less or more milk as you wish.
  • Spoon evenly over cake.
  • Garnish:

  • If desired, place cranberries into the center of the cake and around the base of the cake plate mostly for festive presentation.

<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
