An easy, and tasty bundt cake for your next gathering. This cake is designed to use up softer apples, and is delicious with whipping cream, or ice-cream on the side.

Recipe is designed for a 12 cup bundt cake pan. Cake serves 12.



  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup organic sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 2 large apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 3 cups Flour, unbleached all-purpose
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt


  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon maple sugar
  • 1 cup pecans, broken
  • ¼ cup butter, softened


  • Prepare bundt pan by greasing the sides and centre with butter, and flouring the sides and centre.
  • Shake the pan with the flour in it to coat all sides of the pan.
  • Dump out excess flour.  Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In a bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add in eggs, one at a time and beat after each addition.
  • Add vanilla and buttermilk and mix to combine.
  • Beat for 1 minute till the mixture is light and the butter is completely mixed with the buttermilk.
  • Prepare the apples by peeling, coring, and chopping into small cubes.
  • Stir into the egg-buttermilk mixture.
  • In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt.
  • Add to the batter.
  • Mix until just combined. Don’t over beat.

 Streusel topping:

  • In a small prep bowl, combine cinnamon, maple sugar, and butter to make a paste.
  • Prepare the apples by peeling, coring, and chopping into small cubes.
  • Add the apples to the cinnamon-sugar paste, along with the pecans.
  • Mix to combine.
  • The apples and pecans will be chunky in the butter-maple sugar paste.  This is expected.

To assemble the bundt cake:

  • Sprinkle 1/3rd of the streusel topping into the bottom of the prepared bundt pan.
  • Spread ½ of the batter on top of the streusel topping in the bundt pan.
  • Sprinkle 1/3 rd of the streusel topping on top of the batter, spreading it evenly.
  • Pour the remaining batter into the bundt pan.
  • Top with the remaining streusel mixture.
  • Knock the bundt pan firmly on the counter to dislodge any holes in the batter.
  • Place the bundt pan on the middle rack of the oven.
  • Bake for 30 to 45 minutes at 375°F.
  • Cake is done when it pulls away from the sides of the pan and when a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Remove the cake pan from the oven and place on a rack.
  • Cool for 10 minutes in the cake pan.
  • Loosen the sides and center of the pan using a silicone spatula.
  • Invert the pan over a plate.
  • Place the plate on the cooling rack with the cake inside.  Finish cooling.
  • Remove the pan when the cake drops onto the plate of its own accord. This often happens immediately upon the pan being inverted, but it can take a few minutes with very intricate designs.


Slice while still warm.  Serve topped with whipping cream and slices of fresh apples, if desired.
