Apple Cake with Caramel Glaze plus bonus Muffins (Apple Week Day 3)

Since this is apple week, I knew I had to share an apple cake or muffin with everyone.  Well, I accidentally made too much batter for my cake that I had enough for some bonus muffins too.  You can add any nut you choose for this cake and if you want to make it a little less rich, add applesauce for the oil below.  I was planning on doing just that, but did not have the applesauce on hand.   The cake is not overly sweet so it compliments the very sweet and rich caramel glaze.


Wet Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup canola oil (can substitute applesauce here)
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup milk
2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
2 cups chopped peeled apples
1 cup chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts or pecans)
Dry Ingredients:
3 cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

Caramel Sauce:
1/3 cup caramel sauce (store bought  or you can use a homemade recipe)
2 cups powdered sugar

Peel and chop apples. Mix all wet ingredients together.

Sift dry ingredients into wet ingredients.  Pour batter into well greased bundt pan a little more than half way up the sides.

Bake for 45-55 minutes until done in a 350 degree oven.

For muffins: bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes. Allow cake or muffins to cool.  Mix caramel sauce and powdered sugar and pour over cake.  Enjoy.

  1. Wow lots of great recipe here with apples, I can have that muffin as a bonus LOl, great idea using batter mixed for the muffins,YUM !!

  2. WOO FOR BONUS MUFFINS! Always good to have a few extra lying around. ;) Oh and that glaze! I want to pour it on everything!

  3. Love that caramel drenched muffin! Wish I were eating one now!

  4. great post!like your blog!
    could you check out mine please? would be an honour!

  5. I love the mild flavor in my desserts. I would love the cake and the muffins too.


  6. I always feel like muffins are a good thing for me. I don't take more than two muffins at a time. The cake however I am likely to eat the whole thing at once. Especially when it looks as good as this one.

  7. A two-fer yippee!!!! That caramel sauce is calling me.

  8. I love your apple cake! So gorgeous with the glaze! I haven't made any baked goods with apples this year. Love muffins too, perfect for breakfast. <3

  9. um, is the glaze supposed to be self-explanatory?

    1. You just mix the two together and pour over the cake.

  10. How many muffins will the batter make?

    1. It made about six muffins when you fill the bundt pan with batter. Now if you want to make all muffins (I'm guessing here)... maybe about 14-18 muffins can be made.
