These luscious little apple cakes say “autumn” with every bite. Made with sweetly tart apples fresh off the tree, spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, and a delightful cider glaze.

Why Try? This is a dessert just about everyone will love and it makes a wonderful presentation.

You may choose to serve it whole, or with a small wedge cut out to display a generous dollop of whipped cream cascading down the center.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups peeled, cored, and chopped Granny Smith or McIntosh apples (about 2 large apples)
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • FOR THE CIDER GLAZE:
  • 4 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

Preparation

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • 2 Grease a Bundt pan with oil. In medium bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg and set aside.
  • 3 In large bowl, blend sugar and butter. Add eggs and milk and beat until well combined.
  • 4 Add dry ingredients to sugar mixture and stir until just blended. Fold in apples. This makes a very thick batter.
  • 5 Press batter evenly into prepared mini Bundt pans and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • 6 FOR THE CIDER GLAZE:
  • 7 Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in both sugars. Add remaining ingredients, stir, and bring to boil.
  • 8 Reduce heat slightly and cook for 4 minutes.
  • 9 Remove from heat. Pour while still warm over warm cakes.
