Time for Tuesdays with Dorie! Today's selection is Double Apple Bundt Cake, picked for us to try by Lynne of Honey Muffin, thank you Lynne. You can find the recipe here at Lynne's site if you do not have Dorie's book, Baking From My Home To Yours.
This cake, featuring apple butter and shredded apples and studded with raisins and walnuts sounded like the perfect fall treat to me!
I was happy to be able to use some of the crock pot apple butter I made for a previous TWD dessert, Apple Apple Bread Pudding, back in May -- I had made a huge batch and had this container in my freezer since then. Now that this delicious stuff is thawed out and readily available in the fridge, I'm sure it will get used up quickly.
I ended up making minis and a small half bundt (mostly to use up the leftover batter after I filled the mini bundt pan).
The mini bundts baked for 30 minutes at 350 and they were perfectly done. I was a bit nervous about unmolding them since I had read a few people had trouble with their cakes crumbling, but for whatever reason, luck maybe, mine slid right out of their pans. Whew!
I did not use the suggested icing but made a similar version with 1 cup powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons apple cider, yum!
These look so cute, they will be our dessert tonight so no reviews yet, but I'm sure they'll be wonderful. I can't wait to give them a try :)
