Caramel Apple Bunt Cake


For the Apple Bunt Cake

2/3 cup coconut sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 cup (two sticks) unsalted butter room temperature

1 1/2 cups white sugar

2 large eggs

3 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 cups cake flour

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 cup whole milk room temperature

two Granny Smith apples peeled and finely chopped

For the Frosting

1/4 cup unsalted butter room temperature

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 cup confectioners sugar

1 to 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

Carmel for drizzle topping

For the Apple Bunt Cake

Preheat oven to 350, then prepare a bunt cake pan with olive oil baking spray.

Mix coconut sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl, then set aside.

Beat butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy. (1 to 2 minutes)

Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until incorporated, then add vanilla extract and stir.

Sift flour and baking powder together in a bowl then stir into creamed butter mixture, then mix milk into batter until smooth.

Pour 1 1/2 cups of the batter into the prepared cake pan, then add 1/4 of the apples and 1/4 of the brown sugar mixture.

Lightly pat apple mixture into batter.

Gently pour another 1 1/2 cups of batter over apple layer, then top with another 1/4 of the apples and brown sugar mixture.

Lightly pat apples into batter.

Repeat this with remaining batter and brown sugar/apple mixture.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out mostly clean, 45 to 55 minutes.

(Do NOT overbake! Cake is done when the edges are golden brown and the cake has just slightly pulled away from the sides of the pan)

Remove cake from oven and allow it to cool for 10 minutes, then invert over onto a plate and cool completely before frosting.

For the Frosting

Add butter, vanilla, cinnamon, confectioners sugar and 1 tablespoon in heavy cream into a bowl then using a mixer on slow incorporate all ingredients.

If frosting seems too thick add remaining heavy cream.

Turn mixer on high and mix for 1 to 2 minutes or until frosting is lighter and fluffier.

(You want frosting to be a spreadable consistency.)
Spoon frosting and apples over cake, then drizzle with carmel for topping. Enjoy!
