Continuing into the baking season today, I’m giving you another hit of maple with these pretty blondies. These are absolutely your next favorite- blondies are heavily underrated if you ask me. Not only are they super easy to throw together, but they’ve got that amazing texture that we always associate with brownies.
We’re doin it all today guys. Chocolate, check. Caramel, check. Apples, check. Easy pie, CHECK. I haven’t made a galette in a long time, and now I’m just not sure why. Plus, let’s just throw everything delicious right in, okay? Okay.
Hey guys! I’m going savory today with an easy, super flavorful biscuit. I’m a fan of carbs, and I’m 100% here for these. If you’ve never made biscuits from scratch, they come together really fast and easy- today is the day to start!
I am HERE for this cake guys. You guys know the better side of the year is upon us- fall and winter. And today, it’s a solid fall recipe, super tender texture, and it tastes amazing. I won’t stop you from serving this apple cake with your favorite caramel sauce and ice cream.
Plus, it’s super easy to throw together. This apple cake uses unsweetened applesauce, which makes the whole thing quick. No peeling, coring, and slicing fresh apples- you don’t need to. And like, who wants to really. Applesauce creates a really beautiful texture and taste in the final product as well- no dry cake here!
We’re packing in a bunch of classic fall spices here. Cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg bring the apple flavor to life, and keep the cake tasting warm and cozy.
I also just love bundt cakes in general. They’re pretty without any need for frosting or layering. Sidenote- I have an absolutely unreasonable collection of bundt pans. It messes up my entire pan cupboard, and I’m just living with that for now. I suspect that at some point I’ll literally have a spot dedicated to bundt pans.
So anyways, it’s a simple cake mixture, similar to a pound cake, with the addition of applesauce and spices. I served mine with my favorite caramel sauce and a vanilla whiskey ice cream. The recipe for that ice cream is my book btw!
It’s too easy to not make you guys, today is the day.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and generously grease a 10-12 cup bundt pan. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat together the oil, sugar, and brown sugar until combined. Add in the applesauce, eggs, and vanilla extract until smooth. Slowly beat in the flour mixture. Beat for about a minute, or until all the flour is completely incorporated.
Pour the batter into your prepared bundt cake pan. Bake for 60-65 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool for about 20 minutes in the pan, then turn it out onto a plate to finish cooling.
Serve with caramel sauce and ice cream, or plain!
I’m ready you guys. As far as I’m concerned, it’s fall. We’re in it. There’s a lot of reasons that the second half of the year is my fav, not the least of which is that it’s basically baking season. Everyone bakes more starting right about now, and I’m absolutely here for it.
It was a flippin’ Monday this week guys. But it’s over now, so we can move onto better weekdays filled with fresh fruit and lemon biscuits and cobbler and just general relief from the Mondays. Onto the cobbler, folks!
