Applesauce Spice Cake

Applesauce Spice Cake: the perfect fall bundt with apples, butterscotch and cinnamon.

A Teaspoon of Home

There is something about a bundt cake that makes everyone feel at home. I know it’s not typically the first dessert you look to for any gathering, but I believe they are greatly underused.

One of my favorite wedding gifts was an amazing bundt pan with a cookbook specific for bundt’s; Bundt Classics. This classic pan has given me more complements on different bundt’s than any other dessert. I honestly think it’s just because of it’s unique form. People don’t think they can cut into it and some how think it tastes so much better.

I love that bunt cakes are typically mix up, cook and glaze. Who doesn’t love a dessert that takes little time, but leaves a big impression? This spice cake will make everyone ask for more! I love it’s moist texture and fall flavor.
