Apple Spice Bundt Cake Recipe
  • Butter the inside of a 9-inch bundt pan; flour lightly. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt in a bowl and whisk together.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar together.
  • With the mixer on low, begin adding the eggs one at a time; beat until all eggs are mixed in. Add the vanilla and beat just until combined.
  • Mix in half the buttermilk and half the flour mixture with the mixer on low. Add the remaining buttermilk and flour mixture and beat on low just until flour is mixed in.
  • Stir in the shredded apples. The cake batter will be very thick.
  • Spread the batter evenly in the prepared bundt pan. The pan will be very full so you may want to place it on a cookie sheet to catch any overflow of batter that may occur during baking.
  • Bake for 1 hour. Check for doneness by poking middle with a toothpick. The toothpick will come out clean when the cake is done.
  • Place the cake on a rack to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Turn cake out carefully onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Whisk the butter and powdered sugar together until smooth.
  • Whisk in the maple syrup until well blended; set aside at room temperature until ready to use.
  • Drizzle over the cake when it has completely cooled.
  • Sprinkle chopped nuts over glaze before it sets up.

Note: This cake is very heavy and dense. For a less dense cake you could try adding only 3 shredded apples rather than 4 if you prefer.
