  • cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 4 large eggs
  • 5 medium apples grated (keep from turning brown with a little lemon juice squeezed on the slices).

For the glaze:

  • 5 tablespoons apple juice or apple cider
  • 1 cup granulated sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350F/175C.
  • Grease a 12 cup bundt pan.
  • In a small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave, and let cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl mix together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, salt, baking soda, brown sugar, and granulated sugar.
  • Add the cooled butter, eggs, and vanilla.  Mix until smooth.
  • Fold in the apples and spoon the batter into the bundt pan.
  • Bake 50-60 minutes until a tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, while the cake is cooling in the pan, mix together the apple and 1 cup of sugar to make the glaze.
  • After the cake cools in the pan for 10 minutes, invert onto a cooling rack (the cake should still be warm.
  • Place some baking paper under the cooling rack to catch any glaze that drips off the cake.
  • Glaze the outside of the entire cake (you can use the glaze that drips off onto the paper beneath by scarping it onto a spoon).  Leave to cool another 20 minutes to allow the glaze to set into a crispy coating.
