Cake of the Week: Apple-Cream Cheese Bundt Cake
With fall comes many, many fabulous flavors. There's pumpkin, apple, squash, butterscotch, caramel on top of everything, and wonderful dashes of spices. Of all the flavors, I tend to lean more toward apple, which is partially why I chose this Apple-Cream Cheese Bundt Cake for this week's Cake of the Week.
What I like about bundt cakes is that they're usually easy, only require one pan, and can be topped with a nice glaze. Who doesn't love a drizzly glaze dripping down the side of a cake? Sometimes, simpler is better.
That being said, this particular bundt cake is slightly more involved, but proves to be so very worth it. It's moist, flavorful, and has a nice swirl of cream cheese in the middle. It's easy to adapt to your personal preference as well. If you don't like nuts, leave them out. Not a fan of cream cheese? Don't use cream cheese! If you like a lot of spice, add more spice! You can alter it as you please, but one thing is for certain and that is that this cake is so good on its own. You could even leave off the glaze if you wanted to, but as you can see from the comments, the glaze is highly recommended. These are the other reasons why I chose this cake.
But if that doesn't convince you, this cake has over seventy five-star ratings. It's perfect for any occasion: Casual get-togethers, dinner parties, tailgates, and birthdays. I'm personally saving this one for Thanksgiving or Christmas, but I just had to share it with you now.
